DNA Groups

DNA Groups are the small group ministry at Village and the best way to get relationally plugged in – we all know that a church isn’t home without the relationships! We have various types of groups to make it easy to connect: sermon-discussion or other study-based groups, support groups, special interest groups based on hobbies and activities, and several groups organized around common language or culture.

DNA Groups typically meet weekly or bi-weekly and are offered on various days/nights all around the city. With all the options, why wait? We’d love for you to join us!


Available Groups

We have DNA Groups available at various days and times for all ages and stages of life. Currently, our leaders are ramping up for a ministry restart in September 2021. More information coming soon on all our groups!

In general, most groups run year-round while several choose to study together on a seasonal basis.

You can join a DNA group at any time! Please contact us if you’d like to join a DNA groups

DNA Group Leaders’ Retreat

Register by July 31 for the DNA Group Leaders’ retreat, August 27-29, at the Aldersgate Retreat Center near Salem. We are excited that this will be a Village-wide event and includes group leaders from our ethnic fellowships and student ministry.

There will be small group discussions, time for sharing and connecting, and resources to support your DNA Group leadership. Discussions will include the purpose of DNA Groups and tips for leading a group, groups living out the biblical “one anothers” and group study material resources. Please join us as we learn together and prepare to relaunch DNA Groups this fall.

We strongly encourage each of our DNA Group leaders to attend this time together, and scholarships are available for every situation. Please do not hesitate to contact Dan or Jim with any ways we can serve you or to answer your questions or concerns.
