PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT LEADER
We are not a church with community groups—we are a church of community groups. On almost every evening of the week, adults meet in homes all over the Tulsa metro area and beyond in groups of 12-16 to build relationships, find encouragement, discover principles from the Word of God for everyday life, and just have fun!
Engaging in community groups is how we care for each other and our hope is that every adult attendee at theChurch.at would get the full experience by participating in one of our 130+ small groups.

Community Groups Directory
Community groups: they're real, relational, relevant, and (most importantly) made for you! We have over 130 community groups catered to adults of all ages, covering a wide range of topics and interests. Check out our Community Groups Directory to find your sweet spot and join our community!
Community Groups Expo
The community groups expo is held annually in January and August to provide members of our church the opportunity to connect and learn more about the wide range of community groups available for adults of all ages and interests. Tables are set up in the hallways at every campus in an expo type format for you to learn more about existing groups, get start dates, and discover opportunities to connect.
Community Groups Open House
The community groups open house is held shortly after our community groups expo, which gives you the chance to learn about groups you might be interested in and then visit these groups to discover where you will find your perfect fit. In January and August, each community group hosts an open house. During this two week period, you will have the opportunity to visit several groups, meet potential group members and leaders, and hear more details about study topics. This is the perfect opportunity to make connections with other members of our church and begin forming lifelong relationships in your journey with Christ.
On what days of the week do community groups take place?
One of the great things about community groups is that they fit with every person’s schedule. Pick the day and time that works best for you then select the group nearest to you that works. Please check with the group leader for specific times.
How often do community groups meet?
Most groups meet weekly. It is up to each community group leader whether or not his or her group meets each week throughout the year. Breaks in children’s environments are scheduled during the Christmas season, spring break, and summer. Due to vacation schedules, groups consisting of married couples with children often do not meet during these times.
How long does each group meeting last?
Generally an hour and a half to two hours.
Can I join a community group at any time?
All of our groups are “open” groups. You can visit or join at any time. You are free to visit other groups at any point during the semester to determine which group is best for you. We do encourage you to “land” at a group as quickly as you can and try to connect for that semester and then if it isn’t a fit, try another group the next semester.
What goes on at a group meeting?
Though each group differs in how they do things, many groups have social time in the beginning, then they transition to group discussions or Bible study, and then they spend time praying for each other. Some groups also end their time in groups of guys and gals for accountability and prayer.
Where do my children go while I attend a community group?
Childcare is offered on Sunday and Wednesday nights for kids (birth-5th grade) at the times and locations listed below. Student ministry (6th-12th grade) is offered on Wednesday nights at all our Tulsa campuses from 6:30-8:00p.m.
