Faith Groups

  • Faith Groups help to keep You relationally connected. It’s important we stay connected with one another during times like this.
  • By joining a Faith Group, you’ll meet other people who have a desire to connect, engage in the bible and apply what they learn.

Here are ways that some of our groups are connecting during COVID-19

    • Having virtual group meetings
    • Group texts to keep in touch
    • Calling one another on the phone
    • Emailing prayer requests
    • Helping to shop for a member who can’t
    • Keeping up with one another through a closed Group Facebook account to encourage one another
  • If you would like to learn more about Faith Groups, CLICK HERE or contact Debbie Saeger at debbies@faithma.org.

 

 

Office

  • The office is closed as well, and our staff will be working from home with phone / Zoom meetings until further notice.
  • We have access to Zoom login if that would be helpful for you – as well as other free online meeting platforms. Please email communications@faithma.org if you are interested in this resource to connect with your groups.

 

 

Care Needs

  • We are sensitive to people who struggle during difficult times:
    • Celebrate Recovery will no longer meet face to face in the building – For NOW.
    • If you have a sponsor / accountability partner, we urge you to connect with them this week.
