small groups

Community is vital to the Christian life and an integral part of spiritual development.

Jamul Community Church features numerous small groups throughout our ministry areas. We encourage all members to be part of at least one small group for their spiritual edification.

Benefits of Joining a Small Group:

Small groups help us develop spiritual community.
They do not replace Sunday morning worship where the local body in its diversity unites around the Word and the Lord’s Supper.

Small groups flow out of  Sunday worship,
offering a focused place to pursue our call to community,
fellowship, and mutual love for the glory of God.


Small groups give us opportunities to learn from each other (Proverbs 27:17). We need Christian friends to challenge us as we apply God’s word to our everyday lives (Heb 3:12-13). As our relationships deepen so do opportunities for mutual edification (Heb 10:24).

Bible Study

We don’t raise our hands to ask questions in the middle of a sermon, but you can in a small group. Small groups are great places to ask questions and search God’s word together just like the Bereans in Acts 17:11. Groups study books of the bible, read books on Christian living, and watch Christian teaching videos.


In the New Testament, praying together was a regular part of community life (Acts 4:24).  Small groups pray for each other’s specific needs and those of the broader community.  Praying together also helps us come to the throne of grace through praise, thanksgiving, and worship.


It can be hard to really connect in a large group setting. Small groups are a great place for people to get to know each other. We really do need each other (Rom 12:4-5). Our mutual bond with Christ unites us together with other believers in a way that expresses itself in affectionate fellowship (Eph 2:19-22).


Small groups are places to help each other with needs and concerns (Phil 2:4). Galatians 6:2 directs us to “bear each other’s burdens.” Our care for each other reflects God’s care and love for us.

Every other Thursday at 7pm on Lyons Valley Rd.


In small, personal settings, adults make friendships and support each other.
By studying God’s Word together (or a Christian book or a video series), the group will experience spiritual growth and share applications of their beliefs.

Listed below are the current groups at JCC. Although some groups are currently closed, we invite you to use the form below to inquire about joining a (or perhaps starting a new) small group!

Our 6th-12th grade youth program holds weekly small groups for guys and girls of each grade level. An adult leader facilitates a time for prayer, study, discussion, and fellowship for each group after the large group Bible teaching.
Women’s Ministry
Weekly Bible studies happen year-round for our ladies. Many prayer groups also meet regularly. These women’s groups provide support for believers and help them get to know other women in the church.
Men’s Ministries
ManCave is a monthly men’s group where men grow together with table leaders. Table groups also get together outside of ManCave for further fellowship at other times during the month. 
Young Adult Group
College and career age people (ages 18-29) gather weekly for Bible study and fellowship.
