Small Groups


Life is not meant to be lived alone. We all have an innate desire to be understood, to be cared for, to connect with others, to matter to other people, to find our tribe, crew, squad, group, friends, to go through life with, being loved and loving.

Parkway Family Small Groups are open and inviting groups that help people know and love God and lovingly connect with one another as we unite and build on the foundation of Jesus and center our lives together on Scripture to impact the culture and world in word and actions.

Jesus helps us understand how to live these priorities through His teaching and in what He modeled. Jesus gathered a small group and he gathered large groups to help them love God and love people. He walked, traveled, ate, lived, cried, laughed, loved and shared His very self with His disciples and others. His final command to His followers before ascending to heaven was for them, now us, to go to all the people of the world, loving God and loving people, and help them become disciples, as He made disciples. In our small groups, we aim to love and live like Jesus and to apply God’s Word in all areas of our lives.

If you are not currently in a Small Group, our groups are always open and new groups are starting each semester. Fill out the form below for more information on how to start or join a group!

Led by Ron Hobson. Our group seeks to promote and strengthen Christ-centered marriages.  We believe that these marriages will provide a safe and authentic platform for their children to explore a relationship with the Lord.  Like the Apostle John stated, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." (I John 1:4).  We pray for our children and prioritize their spiritual development.  Parents have children from late elementary school to early college.  Each couple in the group wants their family to make a positive and lasting impact for His kingdom. We gather as a spiritual family that want to share our lives together.  We strive to be real people, walking with Christ, inviting others and serving together to reach our neighbors and the nations.  Come and be a part!  (Ages late 30s to mid-50s)
