GET CONNECTED THROUGH SMALL GROUPS
Core groups are small groups of same gender students who meet together every week to pursue Jesus and friendship.
(See below what precautions we’re taking to protect people during COVID).
Our ministry normally meets on Thursday nights, but we have decided to put this on hold for 2020 due to COVID-19 for the safety of our community.
However, FOCUS also has smaller communities called “Cores” that meet on weeknights throughout the school year, and we plan to continue these for the 2020-2021 school year. These same-gender groups, facilitated by student leaders, allow for deeper discussion and the chance to share in each other’s lives. This is one of the main places students form long-lasting, close-knit friendships in our community. We refer to these groups as cores because they are the core of our ministry.
Since our main mission is to “make and mature disciples” for Christ, we strive to ensure that each and every person in our ministry is growing as a follower and student of Jesus. Our student leaders and staff pastors take time to minister to others one on one through direct study of the Bible and Christ-centered principles, with the intent of training others to teach Christ to the people in their lives. We hope every student in FOCUS takes the opportunity to get involved in a Core and develop a deep spiritual friendship through a one-on-one study. Due to the coronavirus, we are asking that every person involved in a small group or one on one meeting would meet outside, at a safe distance, while wearing masks.
