FAQ: Do Sunday morning ministry groups operate on the semester system?

Yes and no. Our ministry groups basically operate on the semester system, but they operate on an extended semester schedule.

Our small groups can take a break in May, August, and around the winter holidays. But church still happens through the semester breaks, and we need ministries to fill those mission critical roles.

Our ministries operate on the semester system in the sense that we harness the momentum of each new semester to recruit people for ministry. They also utilize the advantage of "short-term commitment" by asking newcomers to commit for only the semester. However, that commitment to the ministry runs a few weeks longer than the official semester deadline.

(Did that make sense?)
