HAPPY NEW YEAR
With the start of a new year, comes new opportunities to deepen our faith and our community. With this beginning is our new group for the 40 Days of Breakthrough. There will be a couple more rolling out later this spring too!
In small groups of 10 to 12 women, we will do a deep dive into topics that matter to the women of our community. They’ll be spread out throughout the rest of the year so each woman has an opportunity to jump into at least one. These are short term groups, so every meeting counts!
Our next 40 Days of Breakthrough group starts in February, meeting once a week over 40 days (approx. 6 consecutive weeks). Some groups are a little longer so please check the details of the groups for meeting times. The group will initially meet virtually via Zoom though if the group decides other ways of gathering, there’s plenty of flexibility for this.
COUNT ME IN!
Registration will open NOW. These are high commitment groups so the expectation is to be present for every meeting. After you register, you will hear back from your group leader within a few days to provide information about the first meeting.
Email Women's Ministry Director Serena Tom-Chiu!
Can I join multiple groups?
Currently we can only accommodate registration for one group per person to allow for other women to be able to participate.
When will we know about future groups?
New groups will be announced approximately one month before they begin.
What if I'm not able to make the timeframe for the topic I'm interested in?
Stay posted for another opportunity in the future as some of the groups will be repeated later in the year.
What if I'm interested in a topic that's not being offered?
Feel free to reach out to Serena (email@example.com)! Love to hear new ideas!
Are there any in-person groups?
Currently groups are all meeting virtually. Each group will have the opportunity to determine additional meet ups, and future groups may meet in-person.
I would like to lead a group!
That’s great!! Let’s talk! Email Serena (firstname.lastname@example.org)
How much time is required outside of the group meetings?
Groups will have associated readings and personal devotion time necessary to get the most out of the group meetings. You can expect about 1-2 additional hours each week, though it varies depending on the subject and the individual.
What types of studies will be offered?
Many of the topics have direct ties to the overall 40 Days of Breakthrough theme, helping women go deeper into transforming their lives with one another. Topics are also passions of the women who lead them and that have a desire to see other women transformed in this way. Some will be more devotional and some will walk through a book.
Do the groups meet for 40 days?
Meeting once a week for 6 or 7 weeks, the “40 days” are approximate.
Can I invite others to join?
Before the group begins, you can invite others to register. Though, after a group begins, it is a closed group.
What if I miss a session? (Can I get the info on missed session? How many sessions are allowed to miss?)
Yes, you can work with the group leader on materials missed though due to the short duration of the group, ideally, only one meeting should be missed. If you need to miss many more, consider taking a group later in the year when you have more availability.
Are sessions being recorded?
No, we want to promote openness and connection in each group so to ensure privacy, we will not be recoding each session.
If a study is full, can I be on a waitlist?
Yes! Register as you normally would and if a space opens up, you will be contacted before the group begins.
Will a study be repeated again if it is full or I am not able to attend when it is offered?
We hope to be able to if there is desire for it! Each group is led by various leaders and in the event that a repeat is desired we will do our best to provide it.
