How is a home gathering formed and who will be a part of my Church@Home?
It can be formed with those who are already a part of The Grove. Maybe you are currently in a small group and you want to create a Church@Home and start watching the service together. Or maybe you want to open your group to new people who you haven't met before to allow those who aren't currently in a group to join on...to join yours.
It can be formed with people who aren't currently attending The Grove. Maybe you want to start a neighborhood Church@Home. You probably have neighbors who would come over to your house for a community that wouldn't be as comfortable coming to the church building. You can start a Church@Home as an opportunity for you and your neighbors to fellowship together.
How do people sign up to be in a group?
Once the hosts are set up online, people can sign up on our web page. A brief description of each gathering will be provided which will allow people to join a group based on a desired location and time. Each hose till be notified by email when someone joins their group.
My home is not suited to host kids, can I just host with adults?
Yes. If groups would prefer to have gatherings with only adults the host can make that distinction and people who sign up will know that ahead of time.
Will there be a kid's ministry experience offered for families who have children?
Yes, our Grove Kids Ministry will provide a separate experience just for kids each week on YouTube.
Will I have to host every Sunday?
We ask that hosts are able to meet 2 to 3 times a month. We understand that people will be traveling and going on vacations but we would like to be as consistent as possible.
If I am having trouble streaming the service is there someone available to help me?
We will be available to provide some tech support for those who need it. Each home will need to have a high-speed internet connection and a screen big enough for the gathering to watch the service.
