WE’RE EXCITED THAT YOU’RE INTERESTED IN JOINING A GROUP FOR
FAST: 40 DAYS TO BREAKTHROUGH
Below, you’ll find answers to some frequently asked questions people have about joining a Small Group. Thanks again for your interest and we look forward to going on an ALL CHURCH Groups Experience with you for FAST!
It’s a small group of people in a similar area of town or stage of life who meet regularly to pursue spiritual growth together. Groups at Liquid have 3 main ingredients that we call the ABCs:
- Apply The Bible
We take what we learn on Sundays and and apply it to our daily lives!
- Bear Burdens
We give and receive loving care and prayer for the trials of life
- Chance To Serve
We put our faith into action – joining arms to serve our neighbors-in-need
Whether you’re brand-new to Liquid or you’ve been coming for years, a Group is a great next step for anyone who wants to grow in relationship with God and others through healthy, meaningful relationships.
Yes! Groups are a great place to grow spiritually through relationships. They are safe places for you to ask the kinds of questions you may have about God and the church!
During our FAST series, all our Groups will participate in a special study for 7 weeks. Group members will receive a FAST Group Guide to participate.
I think you would agree with me when I say we live in a fast food culture. We work hard, play hard, and often move through life at the speed of light! We have the best intentions to live a life that is balanced and healthy, incorporating our relationship with Jesus into everything we do — but never seem to find the time.
For 40 days, join us at Liquid Church as we take a season to put God first – over doughnuts and cheeseburgers and soda and chocolate! We are going to unite and participate in a powerful spiritual discipline called a FAST, when we’ll refrain from food for a spiritual purpose.
At the end of the FAST, we will celebrate our risen King Jesus… and I know we’ll hear amazing stories of the many ways that God has worked in us and through us in this season of faithfulness to him!
While each Group is unique, generally all Groups have some social time with snacks and conversation up front, followed by a time of study and prayer. Each meeting will last approximately 90 minutes.
During our 7-week FAST series, all our Groups will be meeting weekly at a regular day and time.
Groups meet in people’s homes or in public places like a Campus location, Starbucks, Panera, Barnes & Noble, etc.
Each individual Group is responsible for deciding how to handle childcare needs. Some options are:
- Have parents arrange for sitters on their own and attend the Group without children.
- Chip in together for a sitter who watches the kids in a different room while your Group meets.
- Group members take turns watching the kids each week.
