FAQ’s

  1. What if I don’t want to read a book…can I still join? – These groups are intended to foster community and are not merely study groups! Yes, there will be a study linked to each session, but the point will be to grow in faith and in relationship with one another. Definitely still join a group.
  2. Can I start my own group with my friends? – Absolutely! We’d love to share the program resources and discussion questions so you can gather your own group. Contact Chris Baldwin to start your own gathering with your friends – Chris@LOPC.org
  3. What if I can’t make every meeting? – Come for what makes sense for your schedule! These groups exist for you. Just let the group leader know what you can make and we’ll accommodate you.
  4. How long is the commitment? – Small groups will run through the 9-month program year, so we hope you can join for all of it. But, we have different sessions that will start/stop so we can welcome new attendees and for people who need to take a break can do so as well.
