Small Groups

Connecting people who call Southside home and encouraging them to grow closer to Jesus together.

Groups are a huge part of who we are as a church.

Small Group Sign Up

Interested in joining a small group? Below you will find 3 different types a groups you can sign-up for. We have some that meet in person, and we have some that don't meet in person called Simple groups. A Simple Group is a very small group of 3 to 5 people where the leader of the group texts scripture to their group. Now you can have a space where conversations can happen about what you read. So you get a little glimpse of being in a small group, in a very simple and safe way during these crazy times we live in. 

Lastly we have a group called Rooted. Rooted isn’t simply a bible study, it’s a small group experience, where people practice 7 rhythms essential to a healthy relationship with Jesus. Individuals establish firm roots in the Truth of God’s Word through personal study and then come together to discuss what they’re learning and to pray for one another. It lasts for only 10 weeks and gives you a good idea of what being in a small group is like. If you would like to join please sign-up below.

Group Questions 

Did you miss Sunday’s message? Watch it here:

1) Read John 4:3-9. Are there any spaces in your life where you can extend grace and kindness to someone you don’t typically interact with? Maybe at work, at church, or at school? Someone who is a bit of an outcast.  

2) In verses 13-14 Jesus tells the woman that if she drinks from this well she will still be thirsty again. What else could this well possibly be that Jesus is talking about? 

3) What are some things that we today think are going to satisfy us, but ultimately we have to keep going back to them because they never really satisfy? Are they always sinful things? 

4) Read verses 16-18. Why did Jesus need to bring this up?

5) How would it make you feel to know that Jesus knows your deepest darkest secrets? 

6) What does it say about Jesus that even though he knows us completely, all our good and our bad, He still wants to offer us His Living Water? 

7) Read verses 25-26. John has been building up to this moment because 5 different times John the Baptist has declared he is not the Christ, he is only here to lead others to him. In the verses we just read Jesus finally declares He is the Messiah, and who does he declare it to? Not to everyone in the temple, not Nicodemus a leader of the Jews, not even His disciples! He tells this sinful Samaritan woman, “I who speak to you am He.” What is the significance of Jesus sharing the greatest news ever told, with this woman? 

8) Read 27-30 and 39-42. There was a major change in this woman’s life. She went from hiding from people and being ashamed, to telling everyone she saw about the Messiah who met her at the well. What caused this change?
