Groups for All Ages

We want to help you get connected at College Avenue, so we have a number of opportunities throughout the week for men and women of all ages and stages of life. We offer small groups that meet on campus or in homes, Bible studies, and a variety of other groups. Our small groups meet from September through June. 

Joining a small group is a great way to connect on a deeper level with other Christians, grow in your faith, and build community.  Our small groups take a Christmas break during December. Sign-ups for our 2015 small groups will begin on Sunday, December 28. Groups begin meeting the week of January 11
