The Family Group seeks to connect young families in a loving and supportive environment so that everybody emerges to face the upcoming week with energy and purpose. While loving each other incredibly well, we will indulge in fellowship, prayer, study, food, and fun activities. We expect The Family Group to be THE activity that every member of your family looks forward to with eagerness and optimism. Childcare is available for this group.
We are family friendly with childcare incorporated into our group. Our focus is growing closer together as we share our lives with each other and encouraging one another to live out God’s will for our families. Childcare is shared for this group.
I thought it would be fun to have a playgroup at my neighborhood pool/park every Monday morning for babies and new moms! Siblings are welcome…and I would love for you to ask friends too! Feel free to bring a lunch!
We want to honestly explore what it means to be Christians in the face of the injustice, poverty, and lost-ness of our world. We want to bridge the theoretical and the practical — not act rashly or unthinkingly, but not let our convictions stay separate from our day-to-day lives.
What will that look like? Likely some prayer, Bible study, and cookies at the Breslins’ house twice a month. Because all talks about deep social issues should involve cookies.
Women only. We begin with worship, then discussion of whatever we’re studying (this Fall: Beth Moore’s Mercy Triumphs on James), followed by prayer.
We usually have 10-12 women ranging in age from 20-something to 60-something.
We want all types of people to come! We think that having people from lots of different backgrounds gives us the great opportunity of learning about Jesus and gospel in new and profound ways. We want Christians, people who aren’t Christians, people who’ve grown up in the church, people who are just getting acquainted with the church, conservative people, liberal people, gay people, straight people, old people, single people, married people, people who speak in tongues, people to whom the phrase “the holy spirit” is quite frightening, etc. You get the idea.
Currently we don’t have a system of childcare in place, but we if we have a lot of people with kids, we can probably work something out.
We share a meal every other time we meet, and we’re looking for opportunities to love on the people of Durham in tangible ways.
We’re starting off the year studying the gospel of Luke, and I THINK we’ll be taking on Bonhoeffer’s Life Together after that.
Meeting 1x per month for men in the church who are fathers, will become fathers, or those who are not fathers yet, but may someday be one.
The purpose would be utilize Scripture and each other to encourage fathers to embrace their role in loving, developing and training our children’s hearts to be sensitive to God and glorifying Him through our families. (I intentionally used the phrase “our children” because I believe we have made a commitment at each child dedication at our church to support, love and encourage every child within the church, not just our own biological children.)
Be sure to check the calendar for meetings, as not every group meets weekly.
