Small Group Opportunities

Group of People

We are glad that you are here exploring your journey of faith, letting God lead you to be all God intended. One of the best ways to grow your faith is to be connected to a small group community within Chapel Hill. A small group is a gathering of people joined around a passion, God-given gifts, common interests, or needs. It is a safe place to explore hard questions, find support when the answers don’t make sense, and celebrate life!

As individuals, we have differences in our journeys and our places along the path.  Wherever you are on your journey, being in a supportive and purposeful small group will allow your relationship with God to grow.

It is our hope that you find a comfortable place in a small group that allows you to build your relationship with God and with the community at Chapel Hill. May you find many blessings as you take this journey. For more information, contact Tonya Boot at
