Where Real Connection & Growth Take Place
Why Do You Need A Group?
You’re busy. Life can be crazy. You may feel disconnected or lonely. Lifegroups are a place to take a break from those busy demands of crazy, everyday life. They are a place to connect with friends, laugh, and serve together. The goal in these groups is to love Jesus, each other, and to help others find and follow Jesus. Love yourself enough to set yourself up for success, get connected in a Lifegroup!
Where Do You Start?
Here are some next steps for you. Start at #1 or choose your own path. Contact Sarah O’Sullivan, Executive Pastor if you have any questions or need some help.
Step 1: Food & Facts
Update: All face-to-face meetings will be done online due to COVID-19. Contact Sarah to register for Food & Facts, then you will get the email invite to the Zoom call happening on Sunday 4/5 at 12:15 pm. We are continuously evaluating the situation so stay tuned for updates.
If you’re new, your first step is to stop in at a Food & Facts. These occur once a month and are immediately following the Thursday and Sunday 11 am services. They are short (30 minutes max), a casual meet-up with snacks so you can get a clear vision of who our church is, our heart, mission statement, and what we believe. Next Food & Facts will be Thursday, 5/7 at 7:30 pm or Sunday, 5/10 at 12:15 pm. Head to the Next Steps area in the lobby. No need to sign up, just stop in.
Step 2: Food & Friends
If you’re new, your next step after checking out a Food & Facts is to attend Food & Friends. It’s a casual lunch from 12:30-2 pm, and gives us a chance to chat, answer questions, and you can meet the staff. Food & Friends occurs quarterly, please use the button below to register for the next one on Sunday, 4/26. Childcare will be provided at no cost, but you’ll need to register.
Step 3: Village University
UPDATE: Village University will now be available online via a Zoom call. If you would like to participate, sign up using the Registration button below and you will receive the invitation.
Village University will be running weekly with different topics. Stop by the Next Steps area in the lobby to see the discussions which will be continuously changing, or check out the schedule for March. Each session will be a casual time to learn more about a range of topics. Village University will meet on Sundays at 12:30 pm in the Pulse room at the end of the Hall (through the office on the left).
Step 4: Rooted
Rooted is a 10 week experience to go deeper in your relationship with Jesus. It will answer your big questions in a safe, non-threatening environment. Each week will equip you to love Jesus, love others, and help others find and follow Jesus no matter where you are on your walk with Christ.
Stay tuned for information on when the Summer Session of Rooted will begin.
Step 5: Lifegroups, Serving
Connect with friends, laugh, and serve together.
