Groups FAQ

Learn more about Groups at Browns Bridge Church.

What is a Community Group?

Community Groups are small groups of six married couples or six to ten individuals of the same gender who meet in homes or online to pursue spiritual growth and healthy relationships. Groups are provided an initial study from the church.

How will Community Groups be different as a result of the COVID-19 crisis?

For your safety and comfort, we’re asking our fall 2020 group leaders to choose whether their group is exclusively in-person or a hybrid of digital and in-person meetings. Groups will have their first meeting online or in person, depending on the option you sign up for. Both will be available, so you can choose the approach you are most comfortable with.

What types of Community Groups do you offer?

What is a typical Community Group meeting schedule?

Groups meet weekly for one and a half to two hours. The first meeting will be through a digital platform or in person, depending on the group you signed up for.

There will not be an on-site Group Launch event. Groups will have their first meeting as directed by the leader.

How do I join a Community Group?

Group registration happens online twice a year in January and August. When it opens, you’ll have the opportunity to view group options and register for the group that best fits your schedule, stage of life, and area of town.

The group I joined is no longer a great fit for me. How do I change groups?

When you joined your group, you received a confirmation email. Use the “MAKE A CHANGE” button at the bottom of your confirmation email to update your group registration. You’ll only be able to join a group that still has openings. If you cannot participate in a group this season, you can use the “MAKE A CHANGE” button at the bottom of your email to remove yourself from your group without joining a new one.

I missed the Community Group registration period, but I really want to be part of a group.

Email us at groups@brownsbridge.org. A staff member will help you find the best next step for you.

Childcare is not provided, but we provide a childcare supplement (at a predetermined rate) if you need a babysitter in order to attend regular group meetings.
