Adult Big Groups

Life isn’t meant to be done alone. As we’re aiming to know, love, and worship God in a personal way, we’re also striving to know, love and support one another. Many opportunities or people of all ages and life stages are available at College Park to grow in your relationship with Jesus and with others through groups: Small Groups, Bible Studies, and Adult Big Groups.

Small Groups

Small Groups give us the great opportunity as Christ-followers to live life alongside one another. In community, we bear one another's burdens during trials, celebrate God’s gifts and blessings together, and serve in ways that bless and point us towards Jesus each step of the way.

College Park Small Groups meet all over the city each and every day of the week. With over 125 groups and counting, every group is unique. To help our groups function biblically and effectively, we’ve established simple and clear guardrails. These three common group characteristics are what we call our Small Group Essentials:

Christ-centered & focused on the Word

Community that is focused on Christ and intentionally opening God’s Word together will be a place that is shaped by God’s Word, focused on helping one another become more Christ-like, and rooted in biblical truth. Groups that want to form and/or continue as part of the Small Group ministry are committed to studying, memorizing, and obeying the Word of God together. This is the foundation of everything else we will seek to do within Small Group community at College Park.

Intentionally Invasive

It’s far too easy for us to stay on the surface in our relationships. Being real and honest with others is often messy and painful, so it requires intentionality. But growth happens when we choose to engage, to ask the hard questions, to give authentic answers, and to let others into our lives.

The more richly that groups engage with each other, the more they will need to be Christ-centered and focused on the Word. As groups grow closer, leaders and group members should ask questions about one another’s hearts, relationships, or backgrounds that don’t normally come up in a surface-level social group. This depth leads us to the beautiful reality of seeing our need for Jesus individually and collectively.

Living Life Together

Biblical community is about living life together and being committed to walk through the good times and the hard times with one another—not just during the group meetings, but all throughout the week. This might mean meeting for dinner together, a group outing, an email or text to connect during the week, or being prompted by the Spirit to pray for and encourage a group member.

College Park Small Groups meet at least every other week. Life together requires time together, and we want our groups to have it.

What To Expect In A Small Group

College Park Small Groups typically meet in homes two to four times per month. Most groups use the Scripture text from the sermon or the weekly Sermon Application Guide as the basis for their study of the Word. Many groups have a specific geographic or life-stage focus; others are a broad cross-section or are focused on a certain stage of spiritual growth. Some groups include their children while others provide child care on-site.

Small Group Leadership

We are always looking for qualified, spiritually mature College Park members who want to lead a Small Group and help others go deeper with Jesus. If you are interested in learning more about Small Group Leadership, take a look at our Small Group Leader Handbook and fill out an application. Once we receive it, we will schedule a meeting with you to hear more about your desire to lead. We also offer Small Group Leader trainings periodically throughout the year, and we require all potential leaders to go through this training.

Bible Studies

Bible Studies are weekly times to intentionally dig deeper into a particular topic or book of the Bible, enjoy fellowship, and spend time in prayer for others in the class. We offer several men’s and women’s Bible studies throughout the week.

Women’s Bible Studies

We invite you to join in community with other women to study God’s Word and learn how the Bible and its truths equip us in our daily lives to know and treasure Christ. We build friendships and pray for one another, and it is our hope that our time together will ignite a passion in you to follow Jesus. We offer fall, spring, and summer Bible Studies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We have morning and evening studies.

Spring/Summer 2016 Women's Bible Studies

Child care is available for the evening study. We are currently on a waiting list for Tuesday morning child care. 
We are seeking to secure more child care workers, and we anticipate being able to offer more spaces in child care, so please register your children using the "waiting list" option on the form. We will contact you as room becomes available.

Lead a Bible Study in your Neighborhood

Women Next Door is designed to help women bring the transforming message of God's Word to their neighborhoods. Has God been tugging at your heart to reach out to your neighbors with the love of Christ? Have you been thinking that the Lord may want you to start a Bible Study for women right where you live? Or, perhaps you are already involved in reaching out to your neighbors and would like to link arms with us. Our desire is to support you in prayer and provide ideas, formats, and materials. Together, God can use us to capture the hearts of women for Christ across the landscape of our city. Let's pray to the Lord of the harvest, that we might be used to further His kingdom. If you are looking to get involved in this initiative or if you have any questions, contact Cynthia Pizarro.

Men’s Bible Studies

Men’s Bible Studies are a great way to grow in your understanding of who God is and what He has done. Studying the Word or another Christian book alongside other men provides a context where men can sharpen each other’s minds and apply the gospel to each other’s hearts as they press in to know Christ together. Each Bible study at College Park looks a little bit different. Some studies are bigger and some are smaller. Some study different books of the Bible and some study topics. But each study has the same goal: growing together in Christ as we work on rigorously applying God's Word to our lives. We would love to have you join us. Men’s Bible Studies meet on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Adult Big Groups

Adult Big Groups are community-oriented adult Bible classes that allow you to engage in a smaller context on Sunday mornings. You’ll enjoy a more intimate community with teachings from the Scripture.

Adult Big Groups meet on Sunday mornings during the second service at the College Park North Indy unless otherwise noted.

Adult Big Groups are as diverse as the people that are in them, so we recommend visiting several to get a feel for their structure. You can jump in at any time or try several before making a selection.
