SMALL GROUPS

Life is better in community.

Even though we social distancing, that doesn't mean we are social isolating! There are a number of ways to connect online and experience genuine, Godly friendships. A small group (in any form) is a great way to get to know others and to help make a big church feel small. There are many options for meeting digitally! Below are some easily accessible and user-friendly options.

How does it work?

Groups meet online twice a week—one time to review the sermon and discuss, and one time to check in with one another and pray.

Google Hangout

Google Hangouts is another option for group video meetings. It's easy to add people to a group and share a link for joining. The organizer of the group must have a Google/Gmail account, but other participants do not.

Zoom

Zoom is free for meetings up to 40 minutes (for longer than 40 minutes, you can sign up for a monthly subscription), and it offers the ability to text chat and upload resources during the meeting. There are breakout room options as well. Zoom can be easily downloaded on a computer, phone or tablet, and meetings can be scheduled with links sent to participants.

Free Conference Call

Forgo video, and have a good old fashioned conference call! Free Conference Call offers international conference calls, breakout rooms, call control, and the ability to record. Simply log on to freeconferencecall.com, and follow the instructions.

facebook messenger groups

If you have Facebook Messenger (requires Facebook account), this is a great free option for your phone, tablet or desktop. To set up a group, click the messenger icon in the top right corner of your Facebook Messenger page. Choose all the people you would like to add to your video chat. Then, choose the camera in the top right corner to begin the live video chat.
