What are Small Groups?
• 12–15 People • 90 Minutes Weekly
• 10–12 Weeks
Small Groups are where we strive to become better disciples together at epikos church. Being a disciple of Jesus Christ means that we are continually growing in becoming more Christlike. Following the model that Jesus and the early church provided for us, we believe that this growth occurs when we engage with God’s Word and with one another.
Small Groups are comprised of 12–15 people that meet weekly over the course of 10–12 weeks for 90 minutes to build community, discuss the week’s sermon passage, and pray with and for one another. Throughout the Milwaukee area, we offer designated groups for men, women, couples, and general groups which are open for anyone to join.
Small Group FAQ
How do I sign up for a group?
The Fall 2018 sessions will start the week of September 23. Registration will begin September 16th and be open for three weeks. Registration can happen online–a “Sign-up” link will be added to this page at that time–or by filling out a “Small Group Registration Form” and dropping it in the offering buckets at Sunday morning services. If a group listed in the printed is not found online, the group is full and you should select a different group.
If you are a couple signing up for a couple’s or general group together, each person should sign up for the group separately.
What happens when I sign up?
When you sign up, the leader of your new small group will contact you with the address of the group’s meeting place, the start date and time, and all the other information you’ll need to plug into the group.
When will my small group meet?
Small groups meet for 90 minutes once a week for 10-12 weeks. Some groups meet in the morning, some meet in the evening, and some meet during the day.
Is there a cost to join a group at epikos?
There is no cost to join our regular small groups! Specialty groups do require a small cost to cover materials.
Do I need to bring anything with me to Small Group?
The most important thing to bring is a heart for connecting with others and God. In addition to that, a Bible and a Small Group Study Guide will help you to prepare and participate in the group discussion. Study guides are available in the lobbies at our West Allis and North Side locations and in the Café at the East Side.
