SUMMER 2024 Small Groups

Our Summer 2024 trimester of small groups at Substance is June 2nd - August 25th!


Connect Groups are a specific type of Substance Church small group. Connect group participants will share a meal together, discuss last week’s sermon, and pray for one another. These Connect Groups are open to everyone and are a great place to meet new people in the Minneapolis area!


Small Groups are how we live out our belief that “church doesn’t start until the service is over.” Statistically, one of the best ways to grow spiritually is to have 4 to 7 Christian friends in your church who do life with you, challenge you and encourage you in your faith. We hope these groups help you develop those friendships.

Whether you join a connect group in a neighborhood near you, go for runs with fellow enthusiast, network with local business leaders, or look into serving on a Sunday morning team, there are plenty of ways to get involved.

Substance Small Groups meet at various places all around the Twin Cities. Find a group today by checking out current digital and physical small groups in and around Minneapolis below.
