Our Small Groups are designed to be missional, transformational and relational. They change us, help us grow, and get us to go out and do good in the world.

Small Groups typically consist of 8-12 people who commit to dig deeper into their faith and their faith journeys together as a group. For more information, please contact Baleta McKenzie at (212) 686-2770, or stop by during Coffee Hour on Sundays after Worship.

If you love coming to church but can sometimes find yourself getting lost in the crowd, or if you yearn for a deeper connection with the people you see on Sundays and often leave worship wanting to discuss the message with others, but don't know where to begin – then our Small Groups are for you! They bring people together to study God’s Word, to share their stories, build community and have fun together. By joining a Small Group, you can equip yourself with the spiritual tools to put your faith in action.

In Matthew 18:20 Jesus says, "For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them." Consider gathering with a Marble Small Group.

Below you will find a listing of our current Small Groups. You may register online for the groups with the links below. Please note: listing is subject to change.
