Short-Term Groups

Short-Term Groups are a place for you to meet new friends, grow in your existing relationships, and practice the way of Jesus with others. We were designed to live in community and we are better for it. We believe in being a church who does life together.

Are you looking to take your next step and join a group at Seven Marks? This is the perfect spot for you to meet others in our church family and begin to practice the way of Jesus together.


Seven Marks Community Groups

At Seven Marks, our mission is to practice the way of Jesus together. We believe that joining a community group is one of the best ways to do that. Our groups have two primary seasons during the year:

Spring Season: January – May
Fall Season: September – December

Sign Ups for our Fall Community Group Season will open in August. We look forward to another great season of connection and helping you find a community group to join.


Why join a community group?
Life is not meant to be lived alone. God created us for community, but sometimes that can be hard to find. Our community group ministry helps connect you with others that can walk alongside you through the best and most challenging seasons of life – and everything in between.

What can I expect?
Every community group shares the common values of Seven Marks: following Jesus, caring for people, and serving God’s Kingdom. Groups meet weekly or bi-weekly and usually last between 1-2 hours. Time discussing Scripture, praying for one another, having fun connecting or sharing a meal, and serving together are all hallmarks of a community group.

Beyond those common elements, each group has the freedom to reflect the unique personalities and passions of its leaders and members. Some groups are more learning focused, while others create more space for meals and prayer time, while others focus on serving the city as a group.

When and where do groups meet?
Groups meet in homes, businesses, restaurants, and right here at Seven Marks. If you are interested in hosting a group, please email our Groups Ministry at Each group chooses when it will meet, so if a certain day of the week does not work for you, be sure to share that when our community group team member contacts you.

How long do groups last?
Our community groups run on a Fall and Spring seasonal basis. Groups typically take a break or scale back activities for the holidays and summer months.

Is childcare provided?
Every group is different. Some groups have the children attend and hire a sitter. Some groups prefer to not have children at their meetings and each member provides their own childcare. Your group leader will be able to answer any questions you may have before attending. However, if childcare costs is a hardship for you, our church would love to come alongside you.
