Trinity Affinity Groups
A summer of Scripture, prayer and fellowship

What is an Affinity Group?

Just follow the “Rule of Three PLUS ONE!”
· An Affinity Group is a group of three or more people that share a similar interest led by a convener – someone who provides leadership for the group. For example: a group might want to read a book together or visit parks or the beach or a group of singles or seniors or parents of teens or new moms with babies. It could be a group that wants to work out together or walk together or who like fishing or creative writing or walking labyrinths or knitting prayer shawls or Bible study or intercessory prayer or cooking a meal together. It is limited by your imagination and interests.

· The group agrees to meet a minimum of three times during the three month period (July-August).

· They covenant that when they meet they will include Scripture, prayer and fellowship in their time together.

· They covenant that during the three months they will seek to include at least ONE person not currently associated with Trinity into their Affinity Group.

Just remember: THREE + ONE
Where you meet, when you meet, and how often you meet is up to you!

***Just remember to include the SPF factor in your time together***
SPF = (Scripture – Prayer - Fellowship)

So how will these groups get started?At our semi-annual congregational meeting on June 7th at 11:30AM while we are munching on pizza, folks will have the opportunity to list their ideas for an Affinity Group that they would be willing to convene. After giving people some time to think about what has been offered, everyone will then be free to sign up for the group in which they are most interested. Sign-ups will continue through the worship slip and through contact information in the BLOG throughout June. Conveners will attend one of several opportunities with Pastor Keith for prayer and to discuss any needed resources, logistics, questions and so forth. Conveners will be introduced and receive a prayer of blessing on Sunday worship June 28th
