Think Family. Each group will share life together, get to know one another, share meals, and invest in one another. Our goal is that these groups meet in the context of a home – like a family.
Think of a Greenhouse. This is where we grow together. Each group meeting will engage God’s Word by reflecting on the past week’s sermon. A study guide will be provided.
Think of a Team. We’ll pray together, and walk through the ups and downs of life together. We want group members to rejoice with those who rejoice, and morn with those who mourn.
Home Group FAQ’s
Home Groups are designed to help us share life together as a church family. Letting the gospel transform us together.
Home Groups will meet throughout the week during the evenings.
Home Group leaders are instructed to keep the meeting to 90 minutes. This will allow time for some casual conversation, engaging the Word, and praying together.
We want each Home Group to have a mix of ages and stages of life. There is great value in growing alongside people in another demographic than yourself. We will also do our best to place you in a group that is near your location geographically, on a day that you are able to meet.
We ask Home Group members to commit for one school year. Our hope is that your group is a place that you can serve and grow alongside others over a longer period of time, but we ask for an initial commitment of one school year. Groups will meet every week, but will take a break from regular meetings for the month of December and some other holidays. Groups will shift gears for the summer, with more casual gatherings.
Our goal is not to split a healthy Home Group. But we want to be clear—a healthy group is a MULTIPLYING group. Our hope is that over time, God will lead multiple members of each Home Group to share the Gospel Hospitality that they themselves have experienced. When a need arises for a new group to start, we trust that God will lead the right people to step up and start a new group. New Home Groups will start with a team of people who go out from a healthy group. Organic multiplication.
