What is United by the Truth?
In one sense, it is simply a 4-week small group study of 3 John. However, since many groups will be taking place at the same time, it is also a churchwide event for everyone.
Who is it for?
When we say everyone, we mean everyone. We hope that every adult attender and member of Bucks Church will join a United by the Truth group regardless of their age or stage of life.
When does it start/end?
Every group will meet for a total of 4 weeks around the month of July. In order to schedule around vacations and missions trips, some groups may start in late June while others wrap up in early August.
How long is each meeting?
Most groups meet for about 90 minutes to 2 hours. This information will be available when you sign up.
Where will my group meet?
Your group will either meet in a home or somewhere on the church campus. This information will be available when you sign up.
Is childcare provided?
Some groups will offer childcare, some will offer a kid-friendly space for older children to play together while their parents participate in the group, and some will not offer either of these options. This information will be available when you sign up.
Does it cost anything to participate?
In most cases, no. However, groups with childcare may request a small donation to help cover childcare costs. This information will be available when you sign up.
What if I can't make every week, should I still sign up?
Being part of a small group is a commitment that we shouldn't take lightly. We hope that you can find a group that fits your schedule and make attending every meeting a priority. However, we understand that sometimes that isn't possible. If you can make 3 out of 4 weeks, then we would encourage you to still sign up. If you're going to miss more than 1 week, then we would recommend that you not sign up but, rather, wait for another opportunity to join a small group that you can commit to attending.
Why should I be part of a small group?
In general, we do small groups at Bucks for two reasons: (1) they give us an environment to practice many of the biblical "one-anothers" that are difficult to fulfill during Sunday morning worship, and (2) they give us another opportunity to meet together and encourage each other as we look forward to Christ's return (see Hebrews 10:24-25). Ultimately, we hope that everyone at Bucks Church will find a place to serve others (ministry) and a place to connect with others (fellowship & discipleship), and small groups are a great way to do the latter.
