Discipleship (learning to live and be more like Jesus) takes place primarily in small group settings we call “huddles.”
Most huddles meet every other week and are between 3 and 6 or so people who are gathering regularly to learn the rhythms and practices of the Christian life.
The difference between a huddle and a home community is that home communities are open to anyone- huddles are “closed groups”, in that after the first couple of meetings, no one new will be joining- this is to allow for cohesion and a sense of feeling like it’s a safe place. Home communities tend to be about building relationships where as in huddle we focus more on spiritual growth and what God is saying to you as an individual.
These aren’t accountability groups or Bible studies, though we are challenging each other to respond to what God is saying to each of us and Scripture is included. Huddles tend to have people all along the spectrum of growth- the common denominator is everyone wants to learn and grow in what it means to respond well to God.
