WHAT IS A SPIRITGROUP?
A SpiritGroup is small group of people (average group size is 8) who meet weekly to connect with one another while exploring a spiritual topic or theme. Weekly meetings are 90 minutes in length and include prayer and/or meditation, topic presentation, and group discussion. Groups meet at various times and days of the week, as determined by the group leader.
WHEN DO GROUPS MEET?
Our SpiritGroups will meet weekly for 7 weeks, for 90 minutes a week.. You may choose a weekday and time that fits your schedule.
WHERE DO GROUPS MEET?
The spring SpiritGroups will meet online, using Zoom.
Normally, when groups meet in person, we have groups all over the Houston area. While we sometimes have a limited number of groups that meet on the church campus, the majority of our groups meet in the group host’s (or other group members’) home.
WHERE CAN I SEE A LIST OF THE AVAILABLE GROUPS?
Group offerings vary from cycle to cycle. In the weeks prior to the launch, we will add a link to this page with a map of all the open groups. (groups with space available). Please email Stacy Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to have the link emailed to you.
I DON’T SEE A GROUP IN MY AREA AND/OR PREFERRED TIME SLOT
Our groups are led by volunteers; wherever and whenever we have willing and trained hosts- that’s where and when our groups will be! If you don’t see a group close to you, or at the right time, consider hosting or co-hosting a group.
WHAT DOES A HOST DO?
We’re so glad you asked! Being a SpiritGroup host is fun and rewarding! Hosts attend a two- hour training session to give them all the information they need to know. As a new host, you c. an choose from a library of video curriculum. Each curriculum includes weekly discussion guides and host videos. Essentially, the host’s role is to create a safe and sacred container for connection and discussion. The other main responsibility of the host is to determine the day and time, as well as location, that your group will meet. In the case of our online SpiritGroups, the host will use the Zoom platform to show videos and facilitate discussion. If you’re interested in finding out more about being a host, please contact Stacy Collins at email@example.com or (713) 782-4050.
