Small Groups

Arlington Small Groups

Do you feel plugged in at church?  Do you know the people who worship with you each Sunday?  Do you want to become more involved but don’t know where to start?  Then Small Groups are a good place to begin.  Whether you wish to lead one or participate in one, these events offer you a chance to become more involved with the Arlington Church Family. 

Currently, we have 7 small groups that meet regularly throughout the week.  Small groups are one of the most important aspects of our spiritual life because they allow us to grow closer together as a family of God.  They encourage us to study the Bible and challenge one another, pray together, get to know those we attend with, and share in our struggles and successes.  We hope that you will take a look at what is currently being offered and be inspired to either attend a group or begin a new one. 

Should you have any questions about this area of our worship, please use the CONTACT US link above.  We will respond as quickly as possible.

Friday 1st Fellowship and Study – Every First Friday of the Month, 7:00 p.m. (Except Holiday Weekends)

Too busy to commit to a weekly small group?  Can’t commit to a study group because it’s always hard to find a babysitter?  Are you only in the area for a short TDY, in school, or constantly on travel for work?  This monthly study group is for you.  It’s a time for food and fellowship, songs of worship, and bible study that encourages the soul.  Every 1st Friday of the month, with the exception of holiday weekends, we meet at the church in Room #25, lower level, South Wing from 7:00-8:15 p.m. (“an hour and some change”).  We start with fellowship and songs, and close with bible study, discussion, and prayer.  Child care is provided.  Check us out on CCB for study topics.
