Group Night Out

Thursday, October 21, at 6:30 p.m. on the East Lawn at Woodstock City Church.

It's time to gather all our Woodstock City Church small groups for Group Night Out 2021. Experience music by the Georgia Mountain Stringband, homemade pie, and an opportunity to serve together and be a light in our community. 


Front porches have long been the place for a cup of coffee, laughs, tears, and listening ears. Group Night Out this year will be a big front-porch hang with all of our groups at Woodstock City Church. Whether your group just started together or has been meeting a long time, we invite all of you to join us.

The lawn opens at 5:30 p.m. for you to bring a picnic dinner, grab dessert, play some front porch games, and hang out with your group.  The event begins at 6:30 p.m.

As part of our Be Rich season, we will have an opportunity for your group to create Hope Gift Bags and Hope Jars for Lighthouse Family Retreat to encourage families going through childhood cancer.



Group seating is on the east lawn at Woodstock City Church. 

  • A circle will be designated for your group. There will be row signs A-Z to help locate your group.
  • Please check-in when you arrive to see where your group will be hanging out.
  • Lighthouse Hope Gift Bags & Hope Jar supplies will be provided for your group in the middle of your circle. You will receive more instructions when you get there on when and how to do this service project.

Bring with you

  • A chair or blanket to sit on
  • Dinner (if you choose to eat there!)
  • Supplies needed for the Lighthouse Hope Gift Bags

Do Not Bring

Homemade pie, fall-flavored tea, coffee, and bottled water will be provided.

We would love for your group to join us in supporting Lighthouse Family Retreat. Groups will purchase supplies for Hope Gift Bags to encourage families that are currently experiencing childhood cancer. You will bring the supplies to Group Night Out to put together in the gift bag provided to you. If your group opts-in, your leader will receive an email with purchase instructions. We will also be logging your serve hours for you.

If finances prevent your group from purchasing supplies for the Hope Gift Bags, we will also be doing a service project for Lighthouse Family Retreat while at Group Night Out, so your group will still be able to participate.

Supply List

The building will be closed during the event, but use of the restrooms will be permitted.

Your group will need to register for this event as space is limited. Your Group Leader received an email on Sunday, September 26 with the link to register.
