Groups have one simple purpose: TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER. For some, social distancing can feel like isolation; so, we think connection is more important now than ever. While the process to get and stay connected to a group is still the same, the platforms have shifted. For the fall trimester of Groups, we will be meeting both IN PERSON and ONLINE. Arbor is opening its doors for groups ready to meet on campus, and some will offer a Zoom component for those at home. Additionally, online groups will meet in virtual living rooms, offering participation beyond our zip code. Fill out a Group Finder Card today, and we will find a really great-fit group for you.
Not all groups look alike, but their intention is the same, which is to BELONG, BELIEVE, and BECOME. We call this our purposeful pathway. This path takes us from a time of bonding and building trust into a season of growing in our faith… which leads to expressing our faith outwardly in acts of service and generosity. Our connection to each other and Christ will continue to strengthen and flourish as time goes by.
Groups meet in 6-week chunks called trimesters. When you join a group, you’re committing to that particular trimester with the option to re-up as many times as you choose. The breaks in-between trimesters give new members a chance to join and leaders time to catch their breath.
Signing up for a group is easy! Simply click the link above and fill out the online form. Feel free to check as many preferences as you like so we can find the best fit for you. From there, we’ll give you a couple of great group options to choose from. Once you select a group, all you have to do is show up!
