MercyGate Home & Connect Groups

Spring 2020—–Register Today!

We were all created for community and life is better when we do it together. We truly experience life when we invest in relationships. In a small group, you will meet new people, learn, share and grow together, while applying the truth of God’s word to real life. MercyGate Groups also create opportunities to connect, grow, and care for one another as a church family. Together, we are able to encourage and support each other during both joyful and messy seasons of life.  

Join a MercyGate Group today! Here are two different types of groups that we are offering: 

 

  • 1. Home Groups

Home groups are specifically designed for connection, growth, and discipleship. Each group will be meeting in Sunday evenings and teaching from the same curriculum designed by Pastor Don to help you grow, connect, and understand the values and culture we have here at MercyGate. You may choose your home group by location, leader, or whether or not there is a place for children. Our home groups are the easiest way to connect and grow! A Note: All Home Groups start at 6PM unless otherwise noted. 

There are a few ways to join one of our groups: Go to our Connection Center and ask for assistance, Email the group directly or Search for the group via the realm by: Find groups on the realm app and look for either “home” or “connect” and then choose the one that you would like to join and click the link. You can also contact the church office at 281-576-5201 or email Rose@mercygatechurch.com for more information.

  • 2. Connect Groups

Connect Groups have one simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe life isn’t meant to live alone and life-change happens within the context of relationships. So our Connect Groups are based out of interest. There is no better way to meet new people than to do something that you love.

There are a few ways to join one of our groups: Go to our Connection Center and ask for assistance, Email the group directly or Search for the group via the realm by: Find groups on the realm app and look for either “home” or “connect” and then choose the one that you would like to join and click the link. You can also contact the church office at 281-576-5201 or email Rose@mercygatechurch.com for more information.

FORM YOUR OWN Connect GROUP

Forming your own Connect Group is easy! You don’t need to have a theology degree or even be the most sociable person around…you just need to want to form relationships based around a hobby or something that you are passionate about! Connect groups are interest-based groups such as exercise, food, sewing etc!

Getting people together for your group is easy…maybe you have connections with people at work or in your neighborhood. Maybe you serve with people on Sunday mornings that live in your area of town. Maybe you’d like to have deeper community with people you’ve met at church events. We will advertise it for you and help people sign up! It is that easy.

Just send an email to Rose@mercygatechurch.com with some information and we can get you going the right direction. Send the type of group, what age group you are targeting, how often you will meet and what you will be doing. Come up with a name for the group and meeting dates, times and a brief explanation about it.
