WE’RE EXCITED THAT YOU’RE INTERESTED IN JOINING A GROUP FOR SEVEN!
Below, you’ll find answers to some frequently asked questions people have about joining a Group. Thanks again for your interest and we look forward to going through the SEVEN All Church Journey with you!
1. WHAT IS A GROUP?
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 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
2. WHO ARE GROUPS FOR?
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.
3. I’M NEW TO THIS WHOLE CHURCH/GOD THING… IS THIS THE RIGHT PLACE FOR ME?
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!
4. WHAT WILL WE STUDY?
During our SEVEN series, all our Groups will participate in a special study for 7 weeks. Group members will receive a SEVEN workbook to participate.
During SEVEN, you’ll discover how the Bible is still relevant for us today! We’ll study in Revelation, the last book of the Bible, Jesus’ letters to 7 churches and from them learn how to experience God’s blessing and serve Him effectively in a culture that’s increasingly hostile to faith.
What would Jesus say about our love for God? Endurance in trials? Faithful service? We’ll find out in SEVEN!
5. WHAT IS A TYPICAL GROUP MEETING LIKE?
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.
6. HOW OFTEN WILL WE MEET?
During our 7-week Freeway series, all our Groups will be meeting weekly at a regular day and time.
7. WHERE WILL WE MEET?
Groups meet in people’s homes or in public places like a Campus location, Starbucks, Panera, Barnes & Noble, etc.
8. WHAT ABOUT CHILDCARE?
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.
9. WHO IS LIQUID CHURCH?
Liquid Church is one of New Jersey’s fastest-growing Christian churches.
