HOSTING AN ONLINE GROUP
New to hosting a group online? An online group is a great way to connect people when in-person meetings may not be possible. Despite the lack of face-to-face interaction, online groups are perfectly capable of allowing you to authentically share life, encourage one another, study together, and watch God work in ways that you may not have dreamed possible.
Your first few meetings will take some adjusting as everyone gets acquainted with the technology and the online format, as well as working out technical kinks. So, don't give up too quickly if your first few meetings are a bit of a challenge. Remember to have fun and laugh as you learn!
As you launch an online group, or work to move your existing group online, this page is designed to help you navigate what platforms are available, best practices for a productive and smooth online experience, and what a typical online group meeting may look like.
"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another -- and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:23-25 (NIV)
