Feel the nudge to lead a group? Take a step of faith with us. We’ll equip you with the tools and knowledge you need to lead. Meet in your home, office or favorite coffee shop. Facilitate discussion and care for the members of your group. People are counting on you to take this next step.
The HOST acrostic stands for:
• Heart for God
• Open your home for five weeks
• Serve a few simple refreshments
• Tell a few of your friends
This is very important to the idea. We are not recruiting teachers or leaders. We are simply inviting people to open their homes for five weeks, serve some coffee and dessert and tell (invite) a few of their friends.
When does this start?
We recommend that your group start the week of September 16/17 and end the week of October 15.
Do I need to prepare anything?
No. We will hand you a packet at our orientation meeting that will have everything you need for your five week study. In that packet there will be a DVD that will walk your group through each session. All you have to do is hit “play.”
What happens when the six-week commitment ends?
With a good experience, you may decide to continue…but there’s no pressure to do that. It is so easy to feel disconnected in a growing church. That is why we believe Connection Groups are so vital. Being in a Connection Group best enables you to grow fully in your relationship with Jesus. How? In a Connection Group, you are surrounded by people who will become your close friends, who truly care for you and are willing to challenge you to deepen your relationship with God and be a support to you.

What is Group Connect?
A fun opportunity to meet others with the shared goal of forming a new small group. A small group is a weekly gathering of three or more people who meet in a home, at work, or even at a restaurant. There you’ll have the opportunity to meet with others to build friendships, study and pray. Groups come in all shapes and sizes: couples, families, men’s, women’s, and the list goes on! The point is that life is not meant to be lived alone. What is Group Connect allows you to Find A Group and Try A Group For Five Weeks. Groups will start the week of September 17.

Six Reasons why you should be in a Small Group
Life is not meant to be lived alone. In fact, God hates loneliness. You were created to experience life with other people, and that’s why at New Life, we encourage you to get into a Connection Group.
A Connection Group is a group of three or more people who gather each week in a home, workplace, or online. In a group you’ll hang out, study the Word, and pray together. Groups come in all shapes and sizes — married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids, workplace, under 20, over 40 — the list goes on. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you.
