Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. WHAT HAPPENS AT AN ACGROUP MEETING?

 

You’ve probably seen ACgroups meeting and not even realized it. An ACgroup looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest. At its core, an ACgroup is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in ACgroups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation and request prayer.

 

2. HOW OFTEN DOES AN ACGROUP MEET?

 

Our ACgroups meet anytime during the year. Most groups meet once a week. ACgroups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life so even if you can’t attend every, single meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.

 

3. WHERE DO ACGROUPS MEET?

 

ACgroups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops and office buildings. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group.

 

4. HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL ACGROUP STAY TOGETHER?

 

Most ACgroups meet for a minimum of six-week sessions to a maximum of twelve-week sessions. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive sessions, but new members are always welcome.

 

5. IS THERE CHILDCARE AVAILABLE?

 

Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.

 

6. WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE FIRST GROUP I TRY?

 

The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy to finding success in an ACgroup is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!
