Beginning in the fall our new Home Group session will start. Please click here to e-mail Jean in the main office to sign up for your Home Group.
A home group is a group of about ten to twenty people who meet together for ten to twelve weeks, usually in a home (but sometimes at the church), to pray, study and fellowship (hang out) together.
The purpose of Stroudwater’s home groups is simply to … make friends and learn about God.
We grow best spiritually when we are with others. True Christianity is not a solo sport. It’s in the context of a small group that we can study God’s Word in more detail, have the opportunity to ask questions, and pray and support one another in our spiritual journey.
How home groups work at Stroudwater Christian Church
At Stroudwater, we have divided the year into three trimesters, each lasting from ten to twelve weeks. All home groups start and stop at around the same time. In between trimesters some small groups take a short break. When a new trimester begins, people may sign up for a different home group based on a topic they desire or they may choose to stay in the same group.
Do I have to attend weekly?
We do encourage weekly attendance for all those who sign up for a home group, barring the obvious exceptions (out-of-town, ill or an emergency). So please keep this in mind when signing up for a home group. Groups are much more successful when attendees express commitment to the group through weekly attendance.
Do all home groups study the same thing?
We often start our year with all of our home groups studying the same materials. This is also in line with the Sunday morning messages for that season.
At other times each home group studies something completely different, and we try to present a well-rounded assortment of topics.
“Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.”
Acts 5:42 New International Version
