Considered by some to be the traditional Small Group, our home groups are facilitated by Damascus Road leaders and meet in homes or online. These gatherings typically include Bible study, discussion, prayer and a time of relaxed fellowship. New groups welcome!



Young Women Brainstorming

Women's Ministry

Connect & Learn

We believe that no woman should journey life alone. Through the laughter and tears we help each other grow closer to God and women in our community. We offer multiple opportunities for women to connect with other women every season of the year at times that are convenient to most schedules.

This women’s group unpacks a book and/or Bible study for 6-10 weeks studying various topics, offering both morning and evening online sessions in the fall and winter. Sister 2 Sister is a great way to get to know women of all ages, experience mentor-ship and build friendships while pouring over thoughtfully chosen, biblically-based curriculum.  Sister 2 Sister will be following the Immerse: Messiah study this fall with morning and evening groups available. 

Sister 2 Sister is meets online, in-person. Follow us on Facebook and connect in community (search DR Women).



Men's Ministry

Small Groups

Join a men's online or in-person small group to connect and grow in faith. This fall, the Men's Ministry will follow along with the IMMERSE Bible Reading Plan during men's groups (tables) in October and November.  Find a group and join along!
