Small Groups at Friends Church

Small Groups are an important way to connect with and support one another. It's hard to get to really know people by only attending Sunday worship, and it can be difficult as a newcomer to build relationships. Small groups offer a more intimate setting in which to nurture relationships, explore your faith, and find community and support in both joyful and difficult times. You're invited to get connected to a small group today!

20/30 somethings
20/30 Somethings

The Friends 20/30 Somethings is a space for our young adults to come together for monthly game nights and other social activities in the community. We often wonder if the real miracle was Jesus having so many close friends in his 30s. We’re doing what we can to follow that example by getting together to remember we don’t have to do life alone. For information on the next event, contact pastorbrooke@friends-ucc.org.

Theology on Tap meets at KinderHill Brew Lab (usually, indoor locations will be chosen if weather is inhabitable) 800 S. Bryan Ave. at 6pm on the 3rd Thursday of each month. T.o.T.'s informal discussions bring our lives more in tune with God's will and way as we get to know each other better beyond church walls. The venue has an assortment of great beers on tap. You don't need to be fond of beer to join us, nor do you need to be 21 or older. Non-alcoholic beverages are available, minors are welcome, and so are pets! The Wild Garlic food truck is also onsite for food. For information on the next event, contact pastor@friends-ucc.org.
