We were made for relationships – both with the God who created us and with other people. Because of this reality, we place a high value on helping people build relationships and form deeper connections.


 

WHAT ARE GROUPS?

Groups are gatherings of 8-12 people who come together on a weekly basis to share life, grow closer to each other and study the word of God. Groups meet in people’s homes and usually last for an hour or so.

 

HOW DO I JOIN A GROUP?

The best way to join a group is by attending Grouplink! This is held three times a year (Feb, Apr and Sept) as a way to launch new groups.

 


 

 


 

Grouplink FAQ

What happens at GroupLink?

The time starts with a brief orientation, where we will share some about our vision for small groups. We will provide you with more detailed guidance to get you through the afternoon successfully. Appetizers are usually served while you meet and talk to others with whom you could potentially be in a group. After mingling for a short time, you will be given specific directions based on your preference. There will be groups for men, women, young adults, and married couples . When we break into new groups, you will plan your first meeting and spend some time getting to know one another. Those groups will then meet for an initial seven-week commitment with the option of continuing if you are enjoying it. Groups will meet in someone’s home for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.

Is childcare provided?

Yes! Childcare is provided for those who have registered in advance. Make sure to sign up now if you require child care!

We recognize that, for some parents, the cost of childcare is an obstacle in their ability to participate in a small group, where relationships are built and we grow together in Christ. To assist parents in removing this obstacle, we are offering a benevolence fund to parents for childcare costs incurred as a result of participating in a small group meeting.

What if I can’t make it to GroupLink?

Because this is the first gathering for each group, it is where relationships begin as people introduce themselves to each other. It is also when they discuss when and where the group will meet. If you cannot be present, then please make plans to attend the next GroupLink event which is offered once a quarter.
