What are Small Groups?

At Silverdale, this is how we GROW. Small Groups are a limited group of people that ‘do life’ together. No matter your age or stage in life, there is a Small Group that can help you connect with others and God in fresh new ways.

Here at Silverdale, we categorize our groups in four different ways:

Small Groups are people that pick a particular study to work through. These are groups of people who are typically the same age range or stage in life.

Bible Studies are short-term classes (usually 6-8 weeks) that focus on a particular topic or study.

Specialty Groups are from our Care Ministry that meets for a period of time to work through a particular struggle or stage of life.

SI are classes (12 weeks) from the Silverdale Institute that provide you with a deeper study and a greater understanding of God’s word.

If you’d like to START a Small Group, use the form in the box below or contact David Thompson.

Small Group Sermon Study

We provide an opportunity for our groups to take a deeper dive into the message each week.


Even in times like these, we want to connect with you and give you resources so that you can still grow in your faith.
