At PromiseLand San Marcos, we have had “PromiseGroups” meeting since 2003. Over the years, we have had tons of groups start and stop. Some groups have lasted up to 7 years. Others have lasted 6 weeks. PromiseGroups are Set of Relationships that are based around a weekly meeting. Though, the weekly meeting is at the core, PromiseGroups are meant to live beyond the meeting and affect our life together. We have 3 basic categories of groups:
- Classic – When these groups meet, they discuss the sermon from the previous Sunday. The discussion outline is posted online by Monday (12pm). Here is a link to this week’s discussion outline.
- Temporary – (I know we should have a catchier name than that) These groups are often “Christian” book based or theme based. Examples of these would be Crazy Love, Purpose Driven Life, etc. They will last anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months.
- Missional – These groups are based on a project or specific ministry. These include worship team, Sunday School, street ministry, prison ministry, etc.
