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 2 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. 

Email Matthew Riley if you have questions or would like more info about groups

Dark Horses Week 2

Judges 4:1-23

1- In the book of Judges, we continue to see the Israelites go through the sin cycle:

Rebellion —> Oppression —> Repentance —> Deliverance —> Peace

How can this ongoing cycle both frustrate & encourage us?

2- Read Judges 4:1-2 together. Why do you think the LORD sold the Israelites to an evil king?

3- Read Judges 4:3-7 together. What do you think Barak was feeling/thinking as he first heard Deborah’s prophecy?

4- Read Judges 4:8-12 together. Did you notice Barak’s hesitation or obedience first? What can we learn from both his hesitation & obedience?

5- Read Judges 4:13-14 together. Why do you think Deborah repeated her prophecy to Barak?

6- Read Judges 4:15-16, Judges 5:4 & Judges 5:21 together. How did the LORD win the battle? What can this teach us about our battles in life?

7- Read Judges 4:17-23 together. Why is the method of Sisera’s death so ironic?

8- Deborah faithfully delivered the message that the LORD had given her. Although he first hesitated, Barak chose to put his faith into action. God has given us a message (the Gospel) and expects us to live it out. What area of life do you need to share the Gospel message with your words & actions this week?

9- Spend some time lifting each other up in prayer. Pray for each person to share the Gospel message with their words & actions this week.
