At Hillside, we are passionate about Groups to accomplish our mission to love God as we lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ (Matthew 28). A Group is a community of people who desire to follow Jesus Christ and make disciples.

Groups create a space for us all to take more ownership of our faith, explore our faith in a safe place, find trusted friends, clarify our values, make a difference, and navigate life well.

Each week, the Hillside Groups team provides this discussion guide. It can be used to guide your personal anchoring time throughout the week, a small group discussion, or even a one-on-one conversation.

Small Groups
What Are Small Groups?

Small Groups are a place to connect into a consistent community to discuss the Bible, care for one another's needs, and ask questions about our faith. Reading, understanding, applying and praying God’s Word together.

New groups launch at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters and meet regularly throughout the school year to study a sermon series, book of the Bible, or book study.  If it's the middle of the semester, don't worry, let our team know and we will help you find a place as soon as possible!

What Are Mens Groups?

At Hillside, we believe that when men gather in groups, there is an opportunity to encourage and challenge each other to grow in obedience to God through studying His Word. At the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, new Mens Groups launch. We meet weekly during the school year to study books of the Bible, seeking to understand, apply, and pray God’s Word together.

What Is Rooted?

Rooted is a 10-week experience offered in the fall and spring to deepen your connection with God, the Church, and your purpose. Rooted inspires questions, conversations, and group experiences (sharing your story, freedom from strongholds, sacrificial giving, serving the community, & celebration) designed to help you find yourself in God’s story. You will engage with God daily (Bible reading, journaling, and prayer) and meet with your group weekly to discuss what you have learned. Come with an open heart and mind, and see how God will surprise you!
