Groups are how we live gospel-centered lives and engage in making disciples. Participating in Groups is part of participating in Greenbriar's Mission and Vision.
Each Group is a family of servants on mission to be disciples who make disciples of Jesus.
A Christian life is lived in community.
Jesus called His disciples to follow Him together. He prayed in John 17 that they would be unified, working together, as they embarked on the mission He would give them.
We don’t live life alone. These are places of honest study and open discussion of Scripture (John 8:31-32; 1 Timothy 4:6) and joyful fellowship for God’s glory and our joy (Acts 2:42; 1 Thessalonians 5:11).
Groups are where we gather to know others and to be known.
They are spaces for earnest prayer for each other and the world around us (James 5:16; 1 Timothy 2:1-2), and genuine care for each other’s needs (Galatians 6:2; Romans 12:9-16).
Groups give us the space to proclaim the gospel to our city as a group of fully equipped disciple-makers.
It's in groups that we receive strategic equipping for the mission God has given us to make disciples who make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20; Colossians 1:28; Acts 28:31).

Where do Groups meet?
Each Group meets in a different home throughout the city.
What can I expect my first time visiting a Group?
Typically, Groups open with fellowship and then move into a time of discussion based on the sermon series from Sunday mornings or a study the group is working through. You are welcome to share if you feel comfortable!
Why are some Groups no longer available?
We like to keep our Groups small because we believe they foster an easier space in which to open up and share honestly with one another. We value spaces where everyone can be known and cared for. Once a group reaches it's capacity, we will close it to more members for the health of the group.
Is there childcare available?
Most groups have childcare in their homes for Group members' children. There are a few exceptions so if you need childcare please note that in your sign up form and we will work with your group request
I still have questions. Who can I talk to?
