Commonly Asked Questions About Groups
Groups meet on different days and times throughout the week. Some choose to meet every week, bi-weekly, or monthly. That information will be part of each group description on the online search tool.
Not all groups offer childcare, but there are options available. Some groups will have participants share responsibility in watching the children, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements. If childcare is available, it will be indicated in the description of the group.
Each group’s dynamic and logistics are different and unique to that group, but you can be sure there is plenty of fellowship, support, and prayer. Some are as simple as friends meeting for lunch, gathering to play basketball, or studying a book or topic of interest. Some groups watch videos and then discuss them, others do service projects. There is plenty of variety and opportunities!
There are several options as to the location of where groups meet. You can choose a group that best fits your availability and comfort level. *All in-person meetings will follow CDC Guidelines.
- ONLINE ONLY: These groups meet virtually only through Zoom Video Conferencing. You can be in the comfort of your own home, or wherever you choose, while joining in on group meetings online.
- IN-PERSON ONLY*: These groups meet in a physical location in person only. It may be in someone’s home, at a park or in a coffee shop.
- HYBRID*: These groups meet in a physical location in-person with the option to have virtual members through Zoom Video Conferencing. This combines the two types above and allows you to choose how you would like to join the group meetings.
That all depends on the group. Many groups discuss the weekly message but others choose a topic or book of their own to study. That will be part of the group description.
