What to Expect

It can be tough to just show up at someone's house! Here are a few things that will help you get a sense of what it's going to be like.

Food & Drink

Some groups eat a full meal together before they meet, while others just have snacks. Either way, there will be refreshments.

Worship Time

15-20 minutes of worshipping God together, setting our minds on Him, practicing thankfulness and gratitude.

Bible Application

Dive into that week's section of scripture and discuss how it applies to daily living.


Share your prayer requests, or just pray with a friend. Pray for someone else who needs it.

So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart...

Acts 2:46

When people get together on a regular basis to fellowship, discuss the Word of God, worship and wait on the Spirit, and pray, something happens within you and within that group of people that is hard to describe, but is something very special.

These are some encouraging stories from 2018:


The McCarthy’s group:

After much prayer and consideration, these are some items of encouragement I have accumulated from our group. One of our ladies has been asking for prayers of provision over the past few months and has seen a breakthrough with her work and it has increased greatly. Another one of our ladies has been struggling in her relationship with her mom and said that the Lord laid it on her mom’s heart that they were in this current situation to help restore their relationship. This was great to hear for our lady since she had already had this revelation and has been praying for the Lord to help her in that situation. The last one is that we have been praying for a girl named Janice who has an illness that is quite expensive and is hereditary so many health insurance companies won’t accept her. We have been praying for healing and while that hasn’t happened, she did have a court date she attended to get government medical assistance and it sounds like the judge will be ruling in her favor. We won’t know the ruling for another month or so but that was such a huge blessing and praise to God because she has been denied several times before this one.


The Harley’s group:

Our encouraging thing is that Larry’s mom loves attending our Friday evening group.  She enjoys talking with the folks who attend and very much likes the Bible teaching.  We are blessed!


The Welch’s group:

In October, a number of the families joined us to do Saturate USA door hangers to spread the gospel and invite people to Praise in the Park.

The ladies have started a text chain where they regularly share prayer requests.

We invited all of the families to the prayer night on 12/21 and three families made it – we rotated who was doing childcare so that everyone had an opportunity to be part of the prayer night.


The Grimes/Kingsbury‘s group:

I was thinking that our group bonded very fast, and Love seeing the fruits beginning to emerge from the Kingsbury’s vision. We had many people take the Stanton’s dinners for several days as his leg was operated on.  10 of us went out to dinner and a Christmas concert in Roseville so I think we are really becoming friends. Lots of sharing of prayers.
