I’m sorry, did you say Point Groups?

Hi GracePoint Family,

On August 6th and 13th, I shared with you about a renewed emphasis on small group discipleship at GracePoint called Point Groups. I believe that small group discipleship is the primary place for spiritual and relational growth and I am excited about the future of this ministry. Joanne Stevens and I are excited to begin implementing this work and to see the fruit God is going to bear because of it. Here are few things to keep in mind:

  • Point Groups is a model that brings Sunday School and Life Groups under one umbrella of ministry.
  • There will be Point Groups that will meet at GracePoint on Sunday morning, in homes, and in the community throughout the week.
  • Point Groups will all start and stop on a schedule together, taking natural breaks during the holidays and at other key times.
  • A new large group discipleship opportunity called Point Group Community will take place periodically where all Point Groups will meet on Sunday morning at 9:30am in the Sanctuary. This will mean all individual groups will forego their regular meeting time and join Point Group Community that week.
  • The purpose of Point Groups is connection, discipleship, service, and reproduction.
  • There are 3 different types of groups to be a part of: Activity Groups (centered around shared interests and relationship building), Grow Groups (focused on spiritual and relational growth), and Support Groups (Grief share, enriching relationships, Celebrate Recovery, etc.).
  • Fall Point Groups kick off September 10, 2017.

If you have any questions on Point Groups, please talk with me or Joanne Stevens.  Enjoy the rest of your week!
