How Important Are LINK groups?
We want LINK groups to become the hub of our ministry. They will be the place where the real ministry of the church takes place as we encourage, support, and challenge one another. God doesn't want any of us to be left to walk alone – we need each other. We want to be a church, not a crowd!
What Is a LINK Group?
LINK groups are designed to grow meaningful, intentional and significant relationships founded upon God’s Word. They are sermon based small groups, as opposed to book studies. They are a lecture-lab model using the Sunday sermon as the lecture, and the small group as a lab to learn to practically apply and live out Biblical truths. They are made up of 10-16 people who meet weekly to study, to share, and to support one another in their Christian lives. Each group is led by a trained leader and host couple. A typical meeting will last for an hour and a half, followed by light refreshments. Some groups may also choose to spend some time in worship.
How Long Does A Group Last?
Each LINK group session lasts 10 or 11 weeks. Basically, we've broken the year into 4 quarters or sessions. At the end of each quarter, you have the choice of staying in the same group, trying a new group, or even taking a break. Groups may stay together throughout the entire year. Groups do not meet mid June through August, though some may choose to continue meeting informally or socially through the summer.
