Knowing God and Applying His Word Together
The gathered church on Sunday mornings is essential, but discipleship groups provide a crucial context for us to be the church by serving one another and building intentional relationships around God’s Word in a smaller group setting. Discipleship groups connect you to the body of Christ so that you can grow in your knowledge of God, use your spiritual gifts, and serve His people. Discipleship groups are not a “one-size-fits-all.” Therefore, you will find a variety of groups listed below.

Home Groups

Home groups expand discipleship outside the four walls of the church building. Home groups provide a more intimate small group setting so that you can grow, love, and serve with fellow believers. Home groups are scattered all across Northeast Ohio. Scroll down to find a group near you!

College & Career

As a young adult, life presents unique challenges in your pursuit of Christ. The college and career discipleship group seeks to equip you to walk in God's wisdom and surround you with meaningful relationships with other believers in a similar stage of life. Join Pastor Seth and his wife Karen in their home weekly as they launch this new group on Thursday evenings, 7:00-8:30 pm.

Men's Group

Join us on the 2nd Saturday, every other month, for breakfast and time in the Word.
"Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love." 1 Cor. 16:13-14

Seniors' Group

Join the senior saints for a sweet time of fellowship, solid Biblical teaching, and prayer for one another! The seniors' group meets at Riverview Church on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 10 am. 


We all need help, don't we? So this summer, our women's book clubs will focus on a series of "Help" booklets. Upon signing up, you will receive an email from your leader, and she will get you your booklet, which costs $6. Next, you will read your booklet and answer the "Personal Application Project" questions at the end. Honest, heart reflection will help you be prepared to discuss these questions and any other significant things you learn in your reading. Since the booklets are short and sweet and the groups only meet once to discuss them, please feel free to sign up for multiple topics that may interest you. 

Discipleship group fAqs

Do groups offer childcare? 
Each discipleship group seeks to serve one another and determine how to best care for young children so that families can participate. Contact your discipleship group leader to find out more information.

Can my kids participate? 
Yes, kids ages 12 and up are welcome to participate in discipleship groups.

How big are the home groups?
We aim to follow the example of Jesus in his discipleship group ministry of twelve disciples. Home groups consistently larger than twelve adults will multiply into more home groups.

There is not a discipleship group with a time or location that works for me. What do I do?

Groups are always changing. Let us know where and when works best for you!
