What if I can't attend GroupLink?
If any of the groups formed at GroupLink aren’t full, we’d love to help you get connected. We’ll post a list of groups with openings a few days after the event. You can sign up online if one of the groups matches your stage of life and meets at a place and time that work for you.
Open group listings are active for two weeks after GroupLink. Openings are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
You can also try a Short-Term Group. These groups are like Community Groups, but they meet weekly for a short term to explore one topic. Short-Term Groups form throughout the year. For more information, click here.
If I registered for GroupLink, does that mean I have joined a group?
No. You come to GroupLink to meet others and decide which group you'd like to join. To give you a starting point, we'll use your registration information to introduce you to people who have similar group preferences. Then you will decide whether that initial group works for you. If not, we'll help you find another group
Do I need to register for GroupLink?
Registration is highly encouraged because we'll use your registration information to help you meet people with similar group preferences.
What happens at GroupLink?
At GroupLink, everyone will start the evening with an initial connection group comprised of others looking for the same type of group in the same area of town. The first step is to talk about a meeting night and location. If the logistics of this group work for you, you've joined a group. If not, volunteers will help you find a different group.
Does this mean you're assigning me to a group? What if the initial connection group doesn't work for me?
We want to introduce you to people you could potentially be in a group with to give you a starting point. Only you can decide if a group’s logistics work for you. If the initial group isn't a good fit, volunteers will help you find a different group.
What is the difference between GroupLink and a Community Group?
You go to GroupLink, a two-hour event, to join a community group. Community Groups are small groups of six married couples or eight individuals of the same gender that meet weekly in someone’s home for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.
Is childcare provided at GroupLink?
Childcare is not provided. If you need a babysitter to attend a GroupLink event, we provide reimbursement at a predetermined rate. Information about childcare reimbursement can be found here.
