Frequently Asked Questions
Connect Groups are gatherings of 5-15 people either in a home or general location. Groups meet to encourage each other, study and apply God’s Word and serve together. Our next Connect Group kicks off March 27th through the week of April 18th.
There are both biblical and practical reasons to join a small group. From a Biblical perspective both Jesus and the early church participated in small groups. Jesus gathered a group of 12 to share life together with him and to serve together. The church from its very beginning met in both temple courts and house to house (Acts 5:42).
From a practical standpoint, let’s face it, when your church is large, it can become very easy to get lost in the crowd. In addition to the great teaching and worship, when do you get an opportunity to build relationships? Where do you go where everybody knows your name? We believe those questions can be answered in your Connect Group.
Typically, the commitment is to attend every week for 4 weeks. At the end of the study, you might choose to continue on to another study or take a break.
The Potter’s House of North Dallas does not determine childcare provision for groups. It is left up to the host and the group to brainstorm solutions for meeting childcare needs.
Our small group meetings are built around DVD curriculum, studying a book of the Bible, exploring a topic, or discussing a book by a Christian author. The group meeting usually includes time to socialize with others, study God’s Word, and possibly enjoy desserts or snacks. Occasionally, a group will take a break to throw a party, serve together and just have fun.
Host a group and change a life
Psalms 133:1 says Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is our vision at The Potter’s House of North Dallas to not only worship together, but to do life together. If you are interested in being a bridge to connect our community we are looking for you! I’d like to host a Connect Group, but should I wait until I have more experience?
If you have a willing heart, a DVD player, and a few open seats in your living room, you can be a host. The DVD “teaches” the group to ensure an easy process from start to finish. Before your group starts, you’ll receive host training that helps you get the most from the DVD curriculum and gives you answers to your questions.
