Look forward to human connection, meaningful interaction, a safe environment, empathic listening, emotional support, satisfying insight, and opportunities for useful service. Look forward to investing your time nurturing your relationships with God and each other. All of these provide a basis for individual spiritual growth and community-building that awaits you. You can also look forward to following a regular set of group guidelines as well as enjoying special activities to accommodate members’ interests and needs.
Each group has a leader to help ensure each gathering feels safe for all involved and goes as smoothly as possible. Sometimes the leader is also the host, but often gatherings are hosted by different members of the group. Gatherings generally consist of reading passages from the Lord’s Word, sharing thoughts and questions, praying together, and planning service-oriented activities that can positively impact you, your group, and others in your lives. Groups may use content already available or develop their own.
