Small Groups (SG) are an important part of the life of our church. These groups are formed to give everyone at NewStory Church a place to belong, to be cared for, and to grow in their faith in Jesus. SGs provide an environment that helps make the NewStory Church community your own. Find a group near where you live or work and get connected today!
Big Church Made Small
Our desire is for everyone who attends NewStory Church to find authentic community here. Our Small Groups are a place where Sunday environments are made small — by allowing you to meet people in your area to connect with and form real relationships.
What are Small Groups?
Small Groups (SG) are a place where you can meet and connect with people at NewStory Church in the area where you live or work. Each SG, a gathering of 10-20 people, is an open group, meaning anyone can join at any time. Some groups have loose category designations, such as singles, family, or womens. All groups meet regularly to connect and grow together through the context of community.
How many Small Groups are currently available?
We have many groups available throughout the Southern California area. Click here to check out if a SG is near you.
If you can't find a SG that works for you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I join a Small Group?
To join a SG, click here to check out current SGs and go through the 4 step process of finding a group: search, select, contact, and visit. The best way to know if a group works for you is to visit and experience the unique personalities and expressions of each Small Group. While you are encouraged to check out multiple groups, our hope is to see people eventually commit to one group and become a vital member of that SG.
When do the Small Groups meet?
Our SGs' actual date and time vary slightly per group. Generally, our SGs meet regularly in the evenings throughout the year with built in breaks during the summer months and winter holiday season.

Can I start a Small Group in my area?
Our hope and vision is that our SG ministry will continue to grow and multiply. Small Groups are created through NewStory Church, but we will continue to update you as they form.
If you are interested in starting a SG, leading or co-leading a group, please contact email@example.com.
