Here's a few answers to our most common questions.
What happens at a group meeting?
Every Southland Group is different, but there are few things that you can expect to encounter in any group. Because the purpose of groups is to get people together, you’ll find people running, praying, eating, or studying together. Groups at Southland are formed around any activity or study that you can do with others! Any group you join will have a spiritual component including prayer, Bible Study, and worship.
What types of groups do you have?
Groups fall into 8 categories: Men’s, Women’s, Couples/Family, Bible Study & Prayer, Recreation, Financial, Outreach, and Care.
When do groups meet?
Southland Groups meet three semesters each year: Winter/Spring, Summer, and Fall. During each semester, groups meet weekly. Groups are a place where relationships thrive and develop. Relationships have the best chance of developing when groups are spending consistent time together. But don’t worry - we know that life happens, so even if you know you’ll miss a couple of meetings, you can still join a group!
Where do Southland Groups meet?
Anywhere! Southland Groups meet in homes, offices, coffee shops, parks, and gyms. Where do you do life? That’s where Southland Groups are happening!
How long do groups meet?
Most groups stay together for a semester. Our semesters are 13 weeks long. The summer semester is 7 weeks long. As relationships form, groups can continue to stay together over several semesters and allow others to join.
Can I join a group a few weeks into the semester?
Yes! If a group is still open, you can join at any point in the semester.
Is childcare provided?
Each group handles childcare differently. Check the directory to see if childcare is available for a specific group.
Do I have to stick with the first group I attend?
If you attend a group that doesn’t seem to be a good fit, find a new group! As you explore potential groups, feel free to contact the leaders to learn more about the group. It can take attending a couple of different groups to find the right fit, so don’t give up! There’s a place for you!
