Small groups are a vitally important part of our community—a place to let your guard down and build meaningful relationships with one another and with God.
This winter, a majority of our small groups are utilizing materials from Alpha as their main focus. For further background about Alpha and a weekly schedule of the topics we’ll cover, please visit duluthvineyard.org/alpha. Whether you check out an Alpha group, or one of the other fantastic groups that are available, we hope you find a great place to connect during this season. Please contact us if we can be helpful to you in joining a group.

We believe it’s through community that God helps transform our lives.
In small groups people really get to know one another – listening, learning, and supporting each other through the ups and downs of life.
In the Bible, God explains how he designed us to have these kinds of intentional relationships. To love (1 John 4:7), honor (Romans 12:10), even to be patient and bear with each other (Ephesians 4:2). Romans 12:3-8 puts it like this; together we make up a body, each of us a different body part. Just imagine if your body was missing a part. That would not be good for the part or for your body! Similarly, you need a group of Christ-following friends, as much as they need you.
If you’ve never been a part of a small group, or it’s been a while, check one (or a few) out! On this page, you’ll find all our current small groups and the ones coming in the next connection period.
Types of Small Groups
Sharing life with each other and with God. Learning to love Jesus more through community.
Life Groups live out four main purposes: to connect more deeply with Jesus; to build genuine and trusting friendships with each other; to grow in all that God has put in us and to learn to love others outside of our groups by regularly serving people together. Life Groups are places of real community, where we ask questions and navigate the ups and downs of life together, as we learn to love Jesus more in the process. These groups are open for visitors and you can join anytime.
Learn & Grow Groups
Get training and equipping in specific or broad areas of our lives. We want to look more like Jesus in real-life practical ways.
We’re all called to be disciples of Jesus. These groups help us do that by training and equipping us in areas of our lives that we want to look more like Jesus and less like us. They also offer us the benefit and help of connecting with others as we grow together on the path of discipleship. Learn & Grow groups are available to join only during the Open Months. Once the group has started, the next opportunity to join will be during the next Open Month. In the meantime feel free to join one of our many Life Groups or Social Circles!
Connection with others and sharing our passions in the pursuit of lasting relationships.
As followers of Jesus, everything in our lives should revolve around him, including our jobs, relationships, and even our passions and hobbies. Social Circles are a place where you can take your passions and connect with other people who share them. Social Circles are a blessing to not only those who are participating in them but also to the whole community through love, service, and the building of lasting relationships. These groups can be joined by anyone at any time.
Healing & Recovery Groups
Free of shame and judgement, these groups offer help to process pain, addictions, and sin by meeting Jesus.
It’s normal that as we go through life we’ll discover a need to pursue healing in certain areas of our lives. With trained leaders and others who are working through the same issues, these groups offer excellent material that help us process through pain, addictions, and sin by meeting Jesus in deep, life-changing ways. These groups are free from shame or judgement and are a safe place to become whole. Healing & Recovery groups are available to join only during the Open Months. Once the group has started, the next opportunity to join will be during the next Open Month. In the meantime feel free to join one of our many Life Groups or Social Circles.
