We are better together! 

At Evergreen, we believe our lives, families, and faith journeys are meant to be experienced in community. Through one of the many Small Groups at Evergreen, we hope that you can find "your people" - the people you can call at 3am, and who know your story. 

See below for our Fall 2021 Small Groups, and some additional groups open year-round!

Groups Available in a variety of In-Person / Online / Hybrid formats.

Questions? Contact Assistant Pastor, Nathalia Corso, at [email protected].

  • starting point

    **new to evergreen small groups**

    8 week small group conversation about faith

    For the curious, the skeptic, the doubter, the Christian interested in articulating and sharing their faith. 

    Everything that exists had a starting point . . . including you. You may have started on purpose. You may have started by accident (from your parent’s perspective). You may even have started through the magic of medical science. Whatever the circumstances, you had a starting point and it began before you were aware of it. Physical life is one of many starting points. Your formal education had a starting point. Your career had a starting point. Your romantic life had a starting point. Your experience as a parent had a starting point. Faith has a starting point as well.

    Location: Evergreen

  • women growing together book clubs: 

    daring greatly

    Daring Greatly by Brene Brown

    "Daring Greatly is not about winning or losing. It’s about courage. In a world where “never enough” dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It’s even a little dangerous at times. Whether it’s a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation, we will explore what it looks like to step out and be seen."


    Mondays @ 7pm IN-PERSON

    Start Date:  Monday, October 4th


    Tuesdays @  9am HYBRID (Alternates In-Person / Zoom)

    Start Date:  October 5th


  • women growing together study: determined

    Determined --Living Like Jesus in Every Moment, by Heather Dixon

    Imagine waking up every single day convinced that the twenty-four hours ahead of you are a precious gift to be used wisely. Now imagine that you know how to spend them to be a force for God’s good. In this study in the book of Luke, we will follow the life and ministry of Jesus as we consider the choices He made on His way to the cross and discover how we can make the most of the moments He has given us!


    Thursdays @ 9am on ZOOM

    Start Date:  Thursday, October 7th


    Seamless -- Understanding the Bible as One Complete Story by Angie Smith

    Seamless covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture.  In this study we will gain an overarching understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of the Bible and enrich our understanding of how each part contributes to God's big story!


    Mondays @ 7pm HYBRID (Alternates In Person/ Zoom)

    Start Date:  Monday, October 4th



    La Expedición: Una Aventura hacia la Intimidad con Dios

    No existe una expedición sin preguntas. El signo de puntuación encorvado al final de una oración comunica curiosidad, interés y, quizás, duda. Una pregunta es una invitación a ser vulnerable, a la intimidad. La Biblia no evita esta invitación. Una y otra vez vemos al pueblo de Dios haciéndole preguntas a Su Creador. También vemos al Dios del universo haciéndole preguntas a Su creación.
