D-Groups [Discipleship Groups] are the core of SM2’s ministry with students. A D-Group is a community of students (same grade and gender) and adult leaders that meet on Wednesday nights during the school year.

A SM2 D-Group exists to be a place where students …

  • ask questions, share honestly, and be known and encouraged
  • experience the beauty and necessity of fellowship in the church
  • are led (and lead others) into a growing relationship with Jesus

This is what it’s all about.

The model for our D-Groups aims to provide students with a consistent group of peers and leaders from the time they enter the youth group in the 6th grade until they graduate high school. Leaders are committed to following their group all seven years (check out our awesome leaders here!).

In a culture that rarely slows down enough for students to catch their breath, this D-Group time has become a vital aspect of the spiritual growth and health for many of our students.

We look forward to inviting any and every student to join a D-Group, no matter what stage of the journey they are in.
