WHAT ARE PROPEL GROUPS?
Here at Propel we want to help everyone do four things: Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, and Make a Difference. Groups are where we help others find freedom! So often we get through a rough season or a negative situation, but we seem to still carry that with us, even though it's over! Through Propel Groups we lead people out of captivity and into the freedom Jesus has for them. It can also be hard to make friends and find real biblical community on a Sunday morning, so Propel Groups helps people find their tribe and build godly, biblical friendships! Propel Groups allow the church to grow larger and small at the same time.
Hubs are our way of splitting groups up by type so people can find the group that's right for them! Whether they're interested in joining a study group, a men's group, or a hangout group, our hubs make it easy to find exactly what they're looking for!
Hangout - These groups are hobby/interest based.
Men - These groups are for men only.
Women - These groups are for women only.
Students - These groups are for students grades 6th-12th.
Studies - These groups focus on a specific study and are open to all.
Outreach - These groups focus on local outreach.
Online - These groups are for people who want to have group online instead of in-person
Freedom - These groups follow the Freedom Curriculum from Ps. Chris Hodgers at Church of the Highlands.
WHY SHOULD I LEAD A GROUP?
As important as it is for you and I to find freedom, it's also important that we help others find freedom too! By leading a group, you create an environment for people to find not only freedom, but also biblical community and the opportunity to help them as they grow in their relationship with Jesus.
WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM ME AS A GROUP LEADER?
Our groups are in 12 and 6 week semesters. By saying yes to leading a group, you commit to 12 or 6 weeks (depending on the semester) of groups as well as upholding our honor code and group leader guidelines. We also ask that each of our groups include what we call ESPN: Encouragement, Scripture, Prayer, and Next Steps.
