Community Groups

Community groups are small-sized groups (generally less than 10 people) of people who push each other to learn more about God. They are similar to small groups in that there are designated weekly meeting times to share and go through bible studies together, but community groups extend much farther beyond that. Community groups will have events specifically for the group, and people within a group will get to know everyone else in the group pretty well. They are like smaller, tight-knit "communities" within the broader ACF community. The community groups for the Spring 2018 semester are listed below.

Large Groups

Every Friday night, we hold Large Groups where the whole fellowship gathers for a time with God.

There are two types of large groups - "Unplugged" and "Food for Thought" - which we typically alternate between. "Unplugged" nights can range from worship and prayer to small group discussions, testimonies, open mic time, Bible reading time, and more! On "Food for Thought" weeks, we gather to share a meal and delve into deeper conversations about a given theme for the night. Seekers and new members are especially welcome to our discussions and grow closer to one another and God as we enjoy amazing food!

After every large group, there is usually an ALGA (What is ALGA you ask? It means "After Large Group Activity!"), where we engage in fellowship together by playing games, going on a walk, grabbing late-night snacks, or more!

Keep a lookout on the Upcoming Events page for when/where the next large group is and what it will be about!


MIT ACF traditionally goes on a couple retreats throughout the year, and they are normally held at the beautiful Intervarsity retreat center Toah Nipi. Toah Nipi is everything you could possibly want for a retreat center. It has really cozy living quarters, breath-taking scenery, a serene lake (that freezes over in the winter so we can play on it), a tranquil forest surrounding the retreat center, the most delicious food you can possibly imagine, and great company with all your friends!

We normally do a Fall Retreat and a Winter Retreat. Keep an eye out on the Upcoming Events page for updates about retreats!

Community Events!

We will be working hard this semester to put together a variety of community events throughout the semester. Keep an eye peeled for announcements of these events. There will be study breaks, shopping trips, restaraunt trips, and more! Apart from the formally organized events, people frequently email out about informal hangout sessions too!
