QUICKLINKS -All our weekend links in one place!



We are created to be in community with one another! In small groups we grow as Jesus followers, deepen relationships with one another, and are spurred on to love our neighbors in word and deed.

Each small group at Constance consists of 6-12 people who meet weekly in order to explore the Bible, experience community, and bless others. Groups meet in homes, at Constance, or in the community. Some groups form around a common affinity (men, women, and young adults, for example). Regardless of when, where, and who, small groups are a means by which we see spiritual transformation in our lives.


Experiencing community at Constance begins with Rooted.

Rooted is a 10-week small group experience designed to connect you to God, the church community, and your purpose. Together, in a group of 10-15 people, you’ll explore the Bible, engage in prayer and serve experiences, share stories, and practice rhythms essential to a healthy spiritual life. Whether you are brand new to church, or have been following God for a long time, Rooted will exercise your faith and help you discover how your unique story fits into God’s epic story in human history. Rooted is available 2 times a year, in January & September.




Small Groups continue to meet beyond the Rooted experience. These groups are designed to equip you to practice the rhythms of a disciple as a community. Already been through Rooted and need help finding a new group? Let us help you search, join or start a group of your own.

Twice a year (August & December) Rooted graduates are invited to join a new or existing small group.

Groups use our study resources to guide their group times and personal devotional times.


Do I need to participate in Rooted before I join a Small Group?

Yes. Rooted introduces group members to practices and experiences that are foundational to our small group strategy, so Rooted really serves as a "primer." Plus, the Rooted experience is valuable to Christians in all stages of their faith journey.

How are Groups determined?

Rooted groups are primarily determined by availability - you register for a Rooted group based upon your desired evening of the week. In addition, we try to place people in groups based on common life stages or affinity.

What do our Groups do?

Groups meet weekly in homes, at Constance, or in the community. Typically, a group meets for 1.5-2 hours to pray, study the Bible, and update one another about their life. Groups also participate in a serving experience at least once per semester.

What if I've already been through Rooted and want to join a new Small Group?

From our SMALL GROUP FINDER and our START A GROUP options, we've got you covered to jump back into a Group.

Is childcare available?

Childcare is available for groups meeting Sunday and Tuesday evenings at Constance. On Tuesday evenings, childcare is available for children 2 years old and under, and children 3 years old to 5th grade, must register for Constance Kids Club.

For groups that meet outside of Constance, we leave it up to each family to work out their own childcare. Sometimes it works best for families to share a sitter or to swap childcare with another family whose group meets on a different evening.
