God never intended for anyone to go through life alone. One of the primary ways that we build relationships at Springfield First is through our Small Group Ministry, where we care and pray for one another, worship God, study and apply the Bible to our daily lives, and have fun together!

Groups listed below are meeting remotely.


Advent Small Groups

Register here to participate in an Advent small group.

See below for the list of small groups that will participate in an Advent study together online! Some of these groups are brand new, and some are ongoing, but all will welcome newcomers. Advent groups will meet during the four weeks leading up to Christmas, beginning the week of November 29.

Groups will use Incarnation: Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas, by Adam Hamilton, as a companion book. It is available at the church for $12.

Contact Jenny Hutcherson with questions about registering for a group or getting the book.

If you are interested in leading a group, here is a Quick Start Guide with more details. Email Pastor Justin Snider to find out more about being a group leader.
