"Friends making regular space to grow closer to Jesus with those around them."

Small Groups are the base space for involvement in Illini Life. This is a group of 5 to 20 people that are on mission together. They seek to do life with a particular people group (location, major, etc). As well, they are easy to be a part of, and put a strong emphasis on spiritual conversation. Several Small Groups are in the same Fellowship. Fellowships don’t have a set meeting time, but flow with our natural desire to socialize, primarily on weekends. The vision for a Fellowship comes from its leadership team, and makes the small group experience more potent.

Check our lists of small groups below, and find one that works for you!

Note: As our community battles to contain the spread of COVID-19, all of our small groups will be adhering to state and local ordinances concerning social distancing and masks. If you participate in an in-person small group, we will be asking people to maintain social distance, wear masks, and observe the limits of number of participants in a group. As we pursue community we want to be loving to one another and do our part to keep each other healthy.
