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.
