Encounter Christ (EC) Small Groups
Connecting with others to seek Jesus
Small Groups gives you a chance to meet others in a space that is comfortable for you, in dorms, in homes or other locations with 8–10 members to pray and share together. You will get to hear the stories of others as they struggle to live their faith, to share your story, and to reflect on THE STORY (the Gospel of Jesus). Through this sharing, you will enter into a group of trusted relationships that will give you support living your faith and learning to pray.
Encounter Christ Small Faith Sharing Groups meet once a week.
Groups for Students meet all year long, during fall, winter and spring quarters.
Groups for Permanent Community (non-students) Encounter Christ Groups for Permanent Community (PCEC) meet for 6-week sessions in the fall and during Lent. For Fall 2018, we will once again be praying together with the gospels for each Sunday. In these popular groups, we reflect on and share the challenges and comforts that each gospel brings to us. We ask that participants commit to attending the meetings for those six weeks, as that is how we build community and a shared prayer life. The groups meet for 90 minutes, and there are groups for women, for young adults, and mixed men and women’s groups. If there is interest, we will do a men's group, and a group on a weekday afternoon for those who do not want to go out in the evening. The deadline for responding to this invitation is September 16, 2018. The first meetings will be the week of September 24, 2018.
