It’s a regular gathering where Cappers meet every other week to learn, pray and worship together. A micro-church is part of the essential rhythm of our church’s “scattering and gathering,” and it follows the materials provided by Cap leaders.
On weeks we aren’t having a wider church gathering, micro-church leaders will meet in a home with other Cappers and do things like read the Bible, pray, and care for one another — just like Christians have been doing for centuries. We will provide resources (videos, Bible passages, questions) for micro-church leaders to use during these gatherings.
You will choose one other individual or family as your micro-church co-leader. Then, with your input, we add other Cappers to your group.
That depends on your comfort level, and how many people fit in the house! A micro-church can have as few as four members, or as many as 15-20.
Firstly, we strongly recommend you share leadership with another person (or family) of your choice. Trust us: sharing the load this way will make facilitating a gathering enjoyable rather than onerous! So once you’ve chosen your co-leader(s), you can rotate the hosting duties, or keep the gathering consistently in one home. That part is up to you. 🙂
Absolutely yes. We encourage families with children of similar age to become a micro-church, and to explore what it means to worship together as a family. We plan to create the kind of content that will be flexible for any type of gathering, and adjustable for kids!
Sunday is already a day set aside to worship, and so for many that will be the best day to meet. But if your group finds another day that suits everyone better, go for it.
After you choose another person/family to lead with, Cap leaders will help you form micro-churches. Then, we will provide content in the form of videos, scripture passages, and questions to facilitate group discussion.
Micro-church leaders are responsible for extending an initial invitation to others to join their new micro-church. The idea is that your group will convene every other week, with micro-church leaders taking turns facilitating, hosting, and seeking to foster meaningful connections that extend beyond the micro-church gatherings.
