Power for Living Groups

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: 1. WHAT ARE GROUPS? Casual groups of 10 or so people that come together once a week for 90 minutes to learn how to live, connect with others, receive care, and have fun too.

2. WHO CAN JOIN A GROUP?

Any adult who likes to have fun and wants to grow can join a Group. You do not have to be a member of Messiah Community Church to join.

3. HOW DO I CHOOSE A GROUP? You choose a group based on your interest or the time it meets. Recommendation: If you are new to Messiah or just completed Boot Camp, the best place to start is with the Maturing at Messiah Group.

4. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO JOIN A GROUP? The cost of materials is your only expense. The average price of materials is $15.00. *Please Note: Additional expenses are incurred when Groups meet over a meal.

WHO ARE THE GROUP FACILITATORS? Group Facilitators are leaders in the church.


Power for Living Groups WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY GROUP FACILITATORS? When Group Facilitators are asked to facilitate, we ask them to enter into a covenant with the other Facilitators by making the following commitments: 1. They will embody and reflect the values and principles of Messiah Community Church and will follow the leadership of the Ministerial Staff. 2. They will faithfully attend Messiah on Sundays and: -Intentionally identify and greet those in their Group. -Participate in the church through financial giving. -Lead their Group in an outreach project. 3. They will make their Group a priority by: -Faithfully attending their Group. -Preparing beforehand for their Group each week. -Inviting/welcoming others to join their Group. 4. They understand they are responsible for the care of their Group. As a result, they will: -Pray for the individuals in their Group. -Follow up with each person in their Group. -Lead their Group in providing care for one another. 5. They will strive to create an environment of growth in their Group by: -Involving as many people as possible in Group discussion. -Creating a safe, comfortable, and welcoming environment. -Beginning and ending on time.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME AS A GROUP MEMBER? Make weekly attendance a priority. If you have to miss due to an emergency, please contact your Group Facilitator.
