Small Groups


At ERPC, we know that life is better together! Whether you’re new to the area, have a complicated schedule, or maybe you just haven’t taken the next step to be involved, it can be difficult to feel connected when you don’t have strong relationships with those around you. This can cause a big church to feel even bigger or can even make you feel like you are facing life alone. Life happens to everyone. You shouldn’t have to do it alone!

We believe that true spiritual growth happens best in environments of authentic community, and that Small Groups are the best places to discover such environments — spaces designed
to help you truly connect with others and grow in your faith.

What are Small Groups?

Small groups are your key to developing connections and find people who lean on each other like family – a close community that grows and learns together.

Small groups are open to everyone in the community, and meet at various times throughout the week, in locations all across the valley.

Small groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet at ERPC or in homes, businesses, restaurants, or other locations throughout the Valley.

“Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.” Acts 5:42

Small groups were vital to the church’s growth then, and they are just as vital now. You’ll never fully experience all that ERPC has to offer until you connect in a small group!

How to find Your Group

Our welcome Center is located in our lobby.  There are  information about our small groups.  Also, sign-ups for small groups.  Our welcome team can help answer your questions as well! 


JOIN! Some groups go all year, seasonal, or 6-8 weeks, it is a small commitment that ends up making a big impact!

All you have to do is join a group – you don’t have to be a member, or even a Christian, to embark on this adventure.

Don’t wait until you’re ready, or until you have a need for community. Today is the day to start doing life with people who care about you.


It is so important to surround yourself with people who want to see you grow and succeed! Don’t do life alone!

Dinner Groups

Sign ups are open now! These groups will be 8-10 people, and will stay together for 9 months, Sept.-May, and strive to gather together 4 times.

What happens at a Belong Dinner Group gathering?
Groups of 7 to 10 people will get together at a participant's home or a local restaurant.

The emphasis is on fun and fellowship, so you don't have to be a great cook to participate.  At the end of the day, the specifics surrounding the dinner are up to the individual group.  Fanciness is NOT the expectation; fellowship should be your priority.

(If hosted at someone's house, typically, we ask the hosts to provide the main dish, while the others provide side dishes.)
