Affinity Groups are designed to create space for relationships in a non-confrontational and fun way. The idea behind AGs is, "Do what you love to do, and invite others to join." We value shared experiences through shared interest.


There are 16 groups meeting around the city of Houston from January through May. Groups meet weekly, every other week, or once a month. Some groups last for 4-8 weeks, and some last through July. You will need to speak with the group contact to get the specifics on the group that you are interested in attending. There are also a couple of groups that require consistent attendance and some that do not. Some groups meet at the same location every meeting, and some travel around to various locations. There are some groups that require you to buy material for that group. Finally, childcare is different for each group as well. 


We know that it can be hard to meet new people in such a large city and hope that you find not only a place to belong with other people, but  also that Jesus is the most satisfying reason for living, the most stable ground to place your identity on, and the most fertile soil for your truest hopes and dreams to grow into reality. Scroll down to see which group works for you.
