We Believe That Were Better Together!
Joining a Life Group will help you CONNECT with other people, GROW in your relationship with God, and SERVE others in love.
What Are Life Groups?
Life Groups consist of individuals or families who are committed to doing LIFE TOGETHER. They meet regularly in homes, coffee shops, restaurants, and other gathering places for the purpose of connecting with God, one another, and the local community. A Life Group needs a facilitator(s) and a group of people who are eager to grow stronger together.
Life Groups Q&A
How Often Do Groups Meet?
Life Groups meet on different days and times throughout the week. In order to connect, grow, and serve most effectively, groups are encouraged to meet weekly or bi-weekly. A group typically meets for an hour and a half to two hours.
Where Do Groups Meet?
Life Groups meet in homes, coffee shops, restaurants and other gathering places throughout Hanover and the surrounding communities. Each group is free to decide where they will meet.
Who Will Be in My Group?
That’s up to you! Grab some people you already know and may already be doing life with and start being intentional about connecting, growing, and serving TOGETHER! It’s that simple. If you need help finding a group, come out to one of our launch nights in the spring and fall to meet other people looking to get connected to a Life Group.
What Happens in a Life Group?
Connecting with people means laughing, crying, celebrating and caring for one another. Groups typically have food, good conversation, a time to study biblical truth, and prayer for one another. Groups may meet informally for bbq’s, sporting events, and other outings. Groups are also encouraged to serve together and live missionally.
What Does a Life Group Study?
Our primary study resource is sermon-based questions. The goal is to take what we’ve heard on the weekend and unpack it in the context of community, dig deeper, and talk about what it means to live it out together.
How Do I Get Resourced as a Group Facilitator?
We believe a Life Group facilitator is one of the most significant roles at HFCOG. Therefore, we want to equip our facilitators and provide them with the training they need to be as effective as possible. All Life Group facilitators will be paired up with a coach who they will meet with one-on-one on a regular basis. They will receive training through periodic huddles and larger training events on an annual basis. Additionally, group facilitators will receive periodic e-mails containing helpful articles, videos, etc. that will enable them to succeed and thrive as a leader.
