WHY SHOULD I JOIN A GROUP?
Transformative life change is taking place through our branch groups! Groups are a place where people gather, grow in faith, form friendships, care for one another, and encounter a real sense of belonging. Groups meet weekly or bi-weekly for an hour to an hour and a half. Bethany Branch Groups have a time of study, prayer, fellowship, and a snack.
HOW IS A TYPICAL GROUP MEETING STRUCTURED?
Groups meet weekly or bi-weekly for an hour to an hour and a half. Groups have a time of study, prayer, fellowship, and usually food! We’re ok if you only show up for the snacks.
WILL I BE EXPECTED TO TALK IF I ATTEND A GROUP?
Absolutely not. There are no expectations placed upon anyone when they commit to a group! Come as you are.
WHEN DO GROUPS BEGIN AND END?
Branch groups are typically broken into three semesters. They launch in the fall (end of September), at the beginning of the year (end of January) and after Easter (late April/early May). Most groups break during the holidays and over the summer. Groups typically run in 8-12 week segments— some are shorter, and some run longer.
WHERE AND WHEN DO GROUPS MEET?
Groups meet any and everywhere! Most of our groups meet in homes or at church. Many meet on a weeknight. We have a few weekend groups as well. Groups are located in Stamford and the surrounding towns.
CAN I JOIN A GROUP AT ANY POINT DURING THE YEAR?
Yes! Groups are open and always happy to greet new faces.
