Why join a group/support group?

Life brings every one of us a storm of one sort or another. One of God’s greatest gifts to us in the midst of the storm is a gift of each other. We offer community groups and support groups so that nobody will have to walk alone, suffer alone, grieve alone, or struggle alone. Through it all, we experience the goodness and grace of God … together.

    Breaking Bread is a small group opportunity for individuals or families attending Fair Haven to get to know each other on a more personal level. Every three months, groups consisting of three households will be connected and will coordinate where and when they will meet over the next three months. Each group will have a volunteer lead who will help coordinate and communicate to the group. We encourage each household within the group to rotate “hosting” once a month. You can choose to open up your home, meet at a local park or restaurant, go bowling, roller skating etc. Groups can decide if they want to meet and include children or have an adult night together. After three months, there will be a new opportunity to sign-up, and groups will be shuffled and reassigned. Sign up during the months of January, May, and September.
