We want everyone at Glendale Christian Church (GCC) to be part of a small group. We believe lasting, life changes happen best in the context of community, which is why small groups are an important part of who we are at GCC. In these groups, people study God’s Word, discuss real-life issues, pray, genuinely learn to care for one another and share together. Small groups consist of 5 to 25+ people who meet at the church or in homes across Springfield and the surrounding area. We have groups for men, women, couples, singles and students.
