Types of Groups

Starting Point

Starting Point Groups are great for anyone new to Black Rock or curious about God, Jesus, the Bible, or Christianity. These provide a conversational environment where no question is off-limits!

Groups meet Sunday mornings at Black Rock in 10-week terms.

Living Free Support Groups

These groups provide a safe place where you can find healing, hope, and support if you are dealing with the effects of abuse and trauma, anger, anxiety or fear, chemical or other dependencies, divorce, grief, or other challenges.

Groups meet Thursday nights at 7:00 PM at Black Rock Church. See what Living Free Groups we’re currently offering or sign up here

Community Groups

Community Groups are the primary connection for hundreds of people at Black Rock. These small groups study the Bible and encourage one another as they seek to apply spiritual truths to everyday life. Groups meet once a week for about two months at a time and are held in various locations and homes throughout Southern Connecticut.

PARENT GROUPS

Building relationships with other parents committed to following Jesus in their parenting strengthens families. With this in mind, Black Rock offers separate parenting groups for moms and dads of young children: MOTR typically meets Tuesday mornings and DOTR meets select Saturdays (September – May). 

MOTR typically meets Tuesday mornings and DOTR meets select Saturdays.

SENIORS OF THE ROCK

This community of senior adults (55 years & older) gathers for luncheons the first Friday of each month (Sept.- June) to grow in the knowledge of Christ and to fellowship with one another. Additionally, Seniors of the Rock hosts other special activities throughout the year.

Sermon Discussion Groups

Discussing the Sunday sermon right after we hear it can be impactful in helping us think through how to apply what we just learned. Sermon Discussion Groups serve that purpose by meeting for 30 minutes following each service to discuss insights and application ideas together.

Registration is not required and you can hop in a group any Sunday!

Ownership

Ownership seminars are for those who want to take a deeper dive into theology, Bible study, and leadership developmentThese seminars typically run for about 6-8 weeks on Sunday mornings at Black Rock Church.

New seminar terms begin each fall, winter, and spring.

Young Adults (Sanctuary)

God designed us to live in intentional community with Him and with others. Sanctuary, our church service geared toward young adults, offers small groups to help you get connected and grow with other people in a similar life stage.

Sanctuary meets every Sunday at 5:00 pm
