Small Groups - Living Rooms
While we gather together as one large group on Sunday, we also gather together weekly in smaller groups.
Living Rooms are groups that gather together to live out the life of faith as a community. We encourage people to attend the group that meets closest to them, provided the evening time works for them. If you are new to Eucharist, and hoping to connect with other new people, one of the groups below is tagged as an "introduction" group, and will be specifically tailored towards new people.
To Join a Living Room or Dining Rom
We'd love to have you join a Living Room or Dining Room. To request the address and contact for a group, Jill Trites, one of our pastors, and she will get back to you as soon as possible!
In our congregation there are a number of people who disciple other people, within our church structure. Think small group leaders, kids coordinators, missional leaders, etc.
In order to best disciple those who disciple others within our church, we have a number of "Huddles."
Huddles are small groups that help people hear the voice of God as they engage in the high-challenge work of discipleship and mission. We ask all of our leaders to be in a Huddle.
We are working off of 3DM's model for Huddles. If you would like to read more, click here to go to their website.
If you would like to engage in a Huddle you should first consider whether you are willing to dive into a place of discipling others intentionally, or leading others into mission. If so, talk to Kevin, Jill, or Steve on a Sunday and they'll talk to you about next steps!
Learning Rooms (Classes)
God's transformation by the renewing of our mind (Rom. 12:2) happens in many more ways than just the intellectual, but often we can grow in our discipleship coming to a new understanding of who God is and how he is at work in the world, and even what we believe and what we are doing about it.
These classes range from introductions to Eucharist, to conversations on a range of challenging topics (sexuality, consumerism, alcohol), to classes on spiritual disciplines and bible study.
In a variety of ways, these gathering groups aim to see God at work in particular areas of life. They make a space for people to grow in their life and faith as it relates to part of their story.
