small groups

Relationships are what Small Groups at Newport are all about: relationship with God and relationships with a small group of people. We believe God calls us to know him in relationship and to live everyday life in relationship with others.


The vision, character, and flavor of each Small Group is unique; we have a wide variety of Small Groups. Some meet on weekdays and some on weekends. Some meet in the day and some in the evening. Feel free to visit one or two or more groups as you decide where to connect.
