Find Community in Small Groups

At The Bayou Church, we believe life is better together. As we experience life together in community, we’re able to encourage each other, help each other and point each other to Christ through all life’s circumstances. The story on this page is one such example but there are numerous other stories like it.

If you are looking for a group, this is a great place to start. Use the filters below to see which small groups might be the best fit for you based on your preference of day, location and more.

If you would like to host a small group, please let us know via this form, or if you aren’t sure—from the options below—which small group is best, we’d be glad to help; simply submit this form.

Inspired Leadership

Like many of the most influential women of the Bible, every woman is beautiful, unique, diverse, and powerful; carrying her story deep within while often shrouded in pain, heartbreak, calamity, or regret. Those trials are the foundation of your testimony, developing and equipping you to identify the leader you were destined to be. In this small group, we will study Biblical female leaders and relate their stories to our battles, but instead of dwelling on the negative, we will celebrate one another's growth and strength because God uses those moments of defeat to mold the leader only He knows you can become. This group meets on campus on Tuesdays from 6pm to 7:30pm and begins on 2/7/24.
