Good Food, Good Fellowship, and Good Friends.

Our Homegroups represent the heart of our church.

Following the model of the early church (Acts 1:8), we encourage our members to join a Homegroup where we enjoy good food, good fellowship, and good friends. It’s a discipleship environment where, within the context of relationships, we grow in faith together.

Below are the current Homegroups offered at AwakenChurch:


We’re a community that seeks to live life together. We meet the first and third Thursday of the month for our dinner groups in a community off of CR-210 in St. John’s County. On the second and fourth weeks, the guys and girls alternate on having guys’ nights and girl’s nights… because we need that separate time! We’d love to have you come join us.

  • When: The 1st and 3rd Thursday at 6:00 PM
  • Where: St. Augustine and 210
  • What to expect: A typical Sunday night starts with dinner and fellowship at 6:00 PM. After that, we jump into a Bible study (while kids have their own bible activities in a separate room) and close out with a Lifegroup time with men and women.
  • Contact: Paul Hardman / 352-359-6510 /


We’re a community of young professionals and young couples who enjoy gathering for significant time in relationships and Biblical study.

  • When: Tuesdays at 7:00pm
  • Where: Dunham Home (Town Center Area)
  • Contact: Nathan Dunham / • Harlan George /

The Barn

The Barn is a fun, engaging small group of families. Each week, we engage in a spirited discussion about God and living out our faith.

  • When: Wednesdays at 6:30pm
  • Where: Awaken Church (4820 Executive Park Court Suite 104)
  • Contact: Patrick Burke / 210-441-9848 / OR Frank Liu / 904-616-0861 /


TBA stands for “Together Being Awesome,” though it could also stand for “Tacos, Basically Always,” since that’s a group favorite for dinner. We are a group that loves to spend time together, both for Homegroup and random adventures. We have young children, married couples, singles, and college students so anyone is welcome and will find compatriots. We share a potluck-style meal the 2nd Wednesday of each month, along with the occasional game/movie night.

  • When: Wednesdays at 6:30pm
  • Where: St. John’s Bluff (close to the towncenter)
  • What to expect: A typical Wednesday starts with the meal and/or fellowship time. This is followed by a discussion/teaching, in which everyone is encouraged to bring to the table what God lays on their heart. Once a month, we have Lifegroups, where men and women have separate times to encourage each other and have more direct discipleship.

Focus on the Family

Focus on the family is a group that is like it sounds. With a broad array of families, we focus on helping bless and grow the families in our neighborhood and church.

  • When: Fridays at 6:30pm
  • Where: Bartram Springs
  • What to expect: We start with a meal and fellowship time. Afterwards, we’ll have a Bible study or discussion and then close with some fun.
