Our small groups are easily the best way to build relationships and develop true friendships at RCC. We believe that one of the central ways we grow as disciples of Jesus is by having intentional relationships with other Christians and joining them on mission in community. Our small groups are the ideal place for that. Not only will you be encouraged to live out the truths in scripture, you’ll encourage others to do the same; all while engaging in the mission of sharing the gospel in creative and exciting ways together as a community.
All of our groups are open and eager for new folks to join. Below is a list of groups that are available right now, and there is a form at the bottom of this page if you would like us to contact you with more information about a particular group.
Geoffrey & Mary Hamrick lead a group at their home in Herndon on Monday nights at 6:15pm. They share a potluck meal together, dig into the scripture from Sunday, and end with prayer time. All are welcome (kids included).
Terry and Flo Steffens lead a group at their home in Reston on Monday evenings from 7-8:15pm. This group shares in eating delicious snack type foods while spending time discussing scripture, worshipping together, and praying for each other. Once a month (typically the first Monday of the month) they will share in a themed potluck dinner while enjoying music and drinks.
Mark & Toni Kupets lead a group on Tuesdays from 6:00pm - 8:00pm hosted at their home in Herndon. Each week, they start with a potluck dinner, then have discussion about the week’s sermon with childcare provided during that time. Please feel free to visit the group as they would love to have you!
Bobby & Lindsey Chambers lead a small group on Tuesday nights at 7:30pm at their home in Reston. This group is focused on the “commuters” who have limited time on weeknights but still wish to share genuine community with fellow believers. They begin each week with some snacks before diving into Sunday’s message and praying together. They welcome everyone but want to note that they are not yet a kid friendly group, due to some ongoing home renovations.
