Life is not meant to be lived alone. In fact, God hates loneliness. You were created to
experience life with other people, and that’s why at Trinity, we encourage you to join a
small group.

A small group is a group of people who gather each week at Trinity, in a home, or in a workplace. In a group you’ll hang out, study the Word, and pray together.

Groups come in all shapes and sizes — married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no
kids, workplace, under 20, over 40 — the list goes on. No matter where you are in life,
there’s a group for you.

Ready to dive in? Find a group that fits you or start one of your own by contacting us at smallgroups@trinitylivermore.org. No need to sign up for these small groups. Just show up, check them out and join them or try another until you find a good fit!
