LIFE IS BETTER
It's in community where belonging, care and growth happen best!
We weren't meant to live life alone which is why living life as a family is our priority. We think Ethos has some of the best people you'll meet... you might be surprised how much you grow by just being in community with others. We've always said "we're better together." That's true now more than ever!
What is a community group?
Community Groups are small gatherings that meet across the city on different days of the week. Community Groups will be a place to celebrate stories, pray together, and lean into God’s Word by discussing Sunday messages. All while building meaningful and life-giving relationships.
What is a study group?
Study Groups meet to learn about the Bible and be equipped to follow God. Study Groups will use Rightnow Media to watch a short teaching and then discuss the content and applications. Studies include books of the Bible, marriage, parenting, finances, hearing from God and more.
What is an interest group?
Interest Groups bring people together around a common interest, passion or life phase to build connection and community. There are a variety of interest groups that form around sports, adventure, coffee, pets, and so much more.
(Our vision for groups)
"Small Groups" are designed for you to experience community, find freedom, and take next steps. Small Groups run in 3 seasons throughout the year - spring (12 weeks), summer (6 weeks), and fall (12 weeks). Here are the benefits of groups:
Groups stir us up toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Groups help us care for the needs of people in the Church and carry each others' burdens (Galatians 6:2)
Groups encourage authentic development, growth, and learning (Colossians 1:9-10)
Small Group Resources
The best teams are made up of a bunch of nobodies who love everybody, serve anybody, and don't care about becoming a somebody.
We believe the greatest leadership is service to others. Every leader is a servant first. From the pulpit to the parking lot, every role looks different but each is of utmost and equal importance. If you are interested in getting involved at Ethos and making a difference, join us for Ethos 101.
Ethos 101-301 guides you to discover your purpose and live the life God created for you. Ethos 101 & 201 are available on demand on our website followed by Ethos 301 in person on a Sunday morning.
In Ethos 101, you’ll hear the story of Ethos Church from Pastors Jordan and Courtney Smucker, and why Ethos exists. In Ethos 201, you’ll hear the "what" behind Ethos.
We hold Ethos 301 sessions at Ethos during the 11:00 am worship experience. You’ll get to meet some of the Ethos servant leaders and get connected to the opportunities available at Ethos to help you live out your purpose and serve others by using your God-given gifts.
Here you can grow deeper in real relationship in a group mentorship setting.
Ethos Mentorship is a 9 month high level commitment program.
Each mentee will be assigned to a group along with a mentor.
While in Ethos Mentorship you will develop authentic relationships. Our groups are created to be a safe space for men and women to be real, to encourage one another, and hold each other accountable.
You will grow deeper in your faith. This program shows mentees what it means to live and practice their faith. Mentees will journey together and challenge one another in their walks to become more like Jesus.
You will find meaning and purpose. Ethos Mentorship gives older men and women a way to share their life experience and provide younger men and woman a process to develop as leaders.
On the first and third Tuesday of each month, we gather to pray over the Church, our community, and our families. We believe that prayer is an important part of following Jesus and focuses us on the right things. Join us at the Ethos + Co Space (6576 Africa Rd Westerville OH 43081) from 6:30-7am the first and third Tuesday of the month.
