Joining a Small Group is absolutely the best way to grow at BridgeWay. Most groups consists of about 8-12 adults who gather for fellowship and to explore the Bible and Christian life together. We have a large number of men's, women's, and mixed gender groups that meet almost every night of the week. Below you'll find information about how to join a Small Group, as well as information about the many resources available for groups meeting at BridgeWay.
We have a new tool available that makes it easier than ever to start or join a Small Group. It's called the Group in a Box. This kit is designed to make it as simple as possible for anyone to grab a box, grab some friends, and start a group. Inside you'll find a curriculum produced specifically for BridgeWay to help get a new group off on the right foot, a resource called Leader 101 with lots of great suggestions about your first steps as a leader and lots of other practical tools to help your group get to know each other and experience powerful community together. Boxes are available in the Square during one of our Small Group Launch campaigns, or you can get one from Pastor Jeff at any other time during the year.
If you'd like to check out the study that accompanies our Group in a Box, click below:
If you are interested in joining a group, but don't feel comfortable picking up a box or don't have many friends in our community just yet, you can also contact Pastor Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org, and he'd be happy to help you find a group.

Childcare for Small Groups
One of the biggest challenges many groups face is how to navigate childcare for their group meetings. BridgeWay has a set of policies to help groups think through these discussions. More information can be found here:
