Explore God

Explore God Chicago

An Explore God Discussion Group is about exploring life’s big questions together. These groups are for anyone who wants to have honest conversations in a respectful environment that encourages authenticity. These groups are about community and discovery. So bring your questions and explore with us!

Does Life Have a Purpose? Is There a God? Why Does God Allow Pain and Suffering? Is Christianity Too Narrow? Is Jesus Really God? Is the Bible Reliable? Can I Know God Personally?

I DON’T HAVE THESE QUESTIONS. WHY SHOULD I JOIN?

Healthy spiritual conversations are an important part of engaging with the world–especially as a Christian. Discussing these hard questions with others can be invaluable for your own spiritual growth.

I’M NOT A CHRISTIAN. CAN I COME?

Absolutely! Explore God Discussion Groups are for anyone from any background. Everyone’s unique life experiences help to enrich and enliven the conversation.

DO I HAVE TO COME TO EVERY SESSION?

Though we’d love to see you as often as possible, there’s no requirement that you come to all seven sessions. Join when you can!

Everyone is welcome to come explore with us and sign up for our small group discussions. For more information about Explore God at Southminster, click here.
