Small Groups

There is a long history of building into lives as fellow believers that has energized the ministry and mission of COD. We offer a number of ways for adults to connect, grow and be involved: weekly small groups (HUB groups) in homes, discipleship opportunities, and various Bible classes on Sunday mornings.

Home Unity Bible

HUB Groups

These are mini-communities that meet in the homes across the San Gabriel Valley throughout the week. The love and grace of God are meant to be experienced in community, and at COD we seek to live that out with each other. This leads to deep, redemptive, authentic relationships that help us not only learn of God’s love and care, but to see it in real life. For most of us this begins in our small group environment, HUB groups. From our experience, it’s the best way to settle into our faith family.

Sunday Morning Small Groups

Essentials of the Faith

This class meets at 9:30am on Sunday morning. The format of the class is discussion, and everyone is encouraged to participate. Class facilitator Brian Booth guides the discussion using a Navigator’s workbook. About 20 people attend and the class meets from September through June. Visitors welcome!

Friendship Class (Hillside Room)

Join this 9:15am class designed with senior adults in mind. It’s taught by Dan Waldron and facilitated by Jim Davis. This class starts with two or three hymns from one of the two downtown hymnals. Then they enjoy a Bible lesson, a report on missionary needs and activities, and end with a time of prayer.

Gather Bible Class

Gather with us in fellowship around the Bible on Sundays in U30 (the classroom next to the flagpole). All ages are welcome. We will be reading Daniel this fall.

As we meet during the youth group hour at 11am, it is also a great option for parents while their kids are in youth group. Class meets September through May.


This group of midlife adults meets at 9:30am to provide support and care for each other as they navigate relationships with adult children and other realities unique to their season of life.

Socratic Bible Study

The format of this class will be discussion-based learning, focused on close readings of Bible passages. The text for this first semester will be Genesis. We’ll be meeting in the Board Room on the east side of campus at 9:45am.

If you are interested in learning with us, please fill out THIS INTEREST FORM or reach out to the class facilitator, Samantha Collett with any questions.

Spanish Ministry (H20)

Join with others who enjoy having fellowship in Spanish! This class meets at 9:30am on Sunday mornings, and enjoys connecting with each other around food and Bible study.

Women of Grace (U30)

While this class is especially for women who come to church alone for whatever reason, it is our desire that any lady at COD would feel welcome to join us to invest time and effort in a group that studies the Word and experiences deep fellowship with one another. Led by a team of ladies at 9:30am.

Women’s Bible Class (U62)

Join Judy Cocoris at 9:30am as she teaches this class for women. They focus on studying books of the Bible, although they get into topical studies along the way. There is always lively discussion, and (for energy for all of this!) they start off with donuts and coffee. Women of all ages are welcomed!
