Small Groups - Meeting God, One Another, and the World

“It is not good for the human being to be alone.”  (Genesis 2:18)

God created us to live in community: to gather together to be known, to be cared for, to be challenged—and to discover how God is calling us into deeper relationship with God, each other, and the world.

Old South’s small groups are a great way to explore this trinity of relationships. These groups meet throughout the week in various locations around Boston and the surrounding towns.  They’re a great way to make new friends, grow in faith, and serve the world.

For a complete listing of this month's small group meetings, view the monthly calendar.
