Echo Groups

Grow in faith, connect in friendships, and make a difference with your life.

Whether you’re exploring Christianity or have followed Jesus for a while, Echo Groups are one of the best ways to grow in faith, connect in friendships, and make a difference with your life.

Echo Groups are:

  • Diverse: Groups ranging in size and topic, reflecting a diverse variety of passions and interests.
  • Seasonal: They run on a semester cycle (fall, spring, and summer), so you can easily explore different topics based on your current season.
  • Versatile: Each group leader determines their meeting cadence and schedule, so there is bound to be a group that fits your schedule. Plus, you can join in at any time!

Help create space for others to build community.

Join an Echo Group

The table is one of the most important places for human connection — it’s where we share a meal or a cup of coffee. See each other eye-to-eye. Where we discuss, debate, and laugh together. That’s why for the fall semester, we are renaming Echo Groups to Table Groups — opportunities for us to come to the table to discuss the Explore God teaching series. Join us as we embark on a journey to discover who God is, who we are, and what our purpose is — together!

More About Echo Groups

Whether you are exploring faith in God, are a new believer, or you are a long-time, committed follower of Jesus, we believe you will both enjoy and benefit from becoming a part of an Echo Group. Our groups typically consist of eight to 15 people that meet weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly in different locations around the Bay Area. They are one of the best ways to grow in your faith, build friendships with others, and impact the community.

Joining an Echo Group helps you experience the benefits of being connected within a community of faith. 

Yes, but we encourage you to join a group closest to where you live or the campus you attend since that will make it easier for you to experience long-term friendships and connection with those in your group.

No, all groups are free, with the exception of when there’s a cost for curriculum or supplies related to your group. In those cases, the cost will be mentioned in your group description. 

Groups in spring and fall usually run for a four-month period (semester cycle). However, summer groups start in early June and conclude at the end of July. If groups have already launched, you are welcome to join mid-semester. Though our groups run in semester cycles, many of them meet long-term, giving you the option to continue in your group semester to semester or switch groups based on your season of life.

Some groups offer childcare, which would be noted in the group description. In those cases there might be a small fee.
