What is it?
• An opportunity for new and renewed relationships and for building meaningful community with others at Hope.
• The Bible teaches that our lives are enriched by “fellowship”, a meaningful interaction with others who have chosen to make Christ the centre of their lives.
1. By meeting once each week in a local home for just six weeks to share stories, a Bible-centred conversation and some casual prayer.
2. Group conversations will arise from the book “Authentic Community”, written by Jim Van Yperen.
The discussions “are designed to build understanding and shape habits for growing ‘one another’ community in your church”. Each study is based upon a Bible text containing a “one another” instruction for how followers of Christ are to become more Christ-like in their lives together.
Dates and Times
• Groups will be offered on a variety of days in the evening with the exception of afternoon options on Sunday and Thursday.
• Groups begin the week of February 10th and conclude the week of March 17th. You choose the group that works for you!
• Group Meetings are just 1 ½ hour duration.
What is the financial cost to participate?
Nothing! Unless you select a childcare option with paid babysitters.
What about my children?
There will be some evening options for bringing your children and sharing in a “pooled” babysitting arrangement in the home where you are meeting.
Is there a way out if I don’t really like my group?
Yes! You are not signing a contract! You have the freedom to thank your group leader for allowing you to come and tell him or her that the group was not what you expected! But hopefully you will love your group and want to come back.
