Growing spiritually doesn’t happen when we know what Jesus says. It happens when we apply what he says. Application happens best within the context of community. To grow spiritually, you have to be connected relationally.

You can sign up for a Community Group after the Sunday morning service August 18 and August 25 at the Connect Center.

 

Here are a few of the most frequent questions asked:

When do the Fall Community Groups start?

September 8, 2019

What is a Community Group?

A small group of people that meet weekly in homes to connect relationally and grow spiritually. They meet during the school year or longer and study topics may vary. We launch groups for men, women or married couples. We have small groups meeting all the time all over Texarkana.

How many people are in a group?

A maximum size of 12 is recommended.

Do Community Groups HAVE to meet in a home?

A group could meet anywhere that the rest of the group agrees to, but we encourage groups to meet in homes. NOTE: Group may decide to rotate the home that they meet in each week.

What do I do with my kids during this time?

Consult your group and decide what’s best for your group.

- Hire child-care in their own home

- Share child-care with other group members

- NOTE: Church child care is NOT provided

 Is there food involved in Community Groups?

That’s a loaded question but, yes, we encourage a small snack and no, you are not required to provide a meal.  Usually group members pool together and provide what they want to eat at any given meeting.

 Can I host a group?

Yes.  Please contact Kelly Myers at (813) 334-2088.

 If I host a home do I have to lead a Bible Study?

No.  Responsibilities can be shared and the entire group is a  conversation so no in-depth teaching experience is necessary.

 What material is discussed in the Community Groups?

Provided material that coordinates with the Sunday morning   series will be provided for you - you can download the content weekly from the church website.

 Do we have to meet on Sunday night?

No.  Groups are encouraged to meet at a mutually agreed on time with group members.  Sunday evening program space has been freed up for you to meet then.

 Do members of Trinity HAVE to be in a Community Group?

No.

 What is the Connect Center for?

It’s for you to use to talk and enjoy getting to know each other.  There’s a chance that if you connect with people at church you can become friends with each other outside of church.  There are books and studies on the kitchen table for you to purchase for your own personal growth or to share together as you connect.
