What does a cgroup look like?
We use a free-market approach to small groups. This means we want people to gather together based on the things they enjoy and are important to them. Essentially, the things you are already doing in your life are the things that can make up your cGroup!
Free market leaders form their groups around their gifts and interests.
Do I have to be a member of Liv It Church to be a cGroup leader?
We ask that all of our potential cGroup leaders have attended and completed Life Track and have attended Liv It Church for a minimum of 6 months.
Why are there semesters?
This allows group leaders and participants to have built- in breaks throughout the year. We believe there is value in cyclical beginnings and endings to Small Group experiences.
What should I do if someone asks a question I can’t answer?
It’s okay to not have all the answers. Thankfully, we can find guidance through prayer, God’s Word, and the Holy Spirit. Encourage them to spend time reading the Bible and praying. Also, let them know that you will do your best to get some information and get back with them at your next cGroup meeting. Do some personal research and contact a pastor to get advice.
Can my group keep meeting after the semester ends?
It’s healthy to take a break from the traditional Small Group setting. However, this doesn’t mean you have to cut off relationship with your group members. Be sure to keep up with them and be available for them when you can. This is a great time to plan a fun group activity or an outreach event where you all serve together. We just ask that you recognize that not everyone will want to meet between semesters, and that’s okay!
How long is the commitment for leading a Small Group?
Leading a Small Group is a six to twelve-week commitment. After each semester ends, it’s up to you and your group to decide whether you will continue meeting at the start of the next semester.
Do I have to provide snacks at every meeting?
Having snacks and drinks available during a cGroup meeting can change the whole mood of the group and help put people at ease. If you don’t want to provide snacks and drinks for every meeting, delegate some of the responsibility to other people in the group and let people take turns.
How can I share stories of life change from the Small Group semester?
We love hearing about lives that are changed through cGroups. You can share your stories with your coach, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also share your own personal stories through social media and tag #livitcgroups
Do we have to meet at a house?
We believe that the best atmosphere for a Small Group is in a home, however, we understand that sometimes that is not an option. Other options for meeting places could include coffee shops, cafés, outdoor locations, etc.
