Zoe groups are disciples of Christ who meet in small numbers for spiritual formation at Chapel Hill or in their own homes. Under the guidance of group leaders, who receive training from pastoral staff and clergy-in-residence, groups study, learn, share, worship and pray together. Most of all, they listen and minister to each other’s needs, from mundane to spiritual. Named after the New Testament Greek word ζωή, signifying an active life with God, Zoe groups evoke both the practice of Christ’s early followers and the class meeting described by Methodist founder John Wesley. Groups typically meet in the spring and fall. Nursery for ages birth through PreK is available for groups that meet on Wednesday evenings at Chapel Hill.
I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
So, how is it with your soul? The class meeting is about knowing Jesus, being in Christ, being in an active and transformative relationship with the triune God. – John Wesley
By God’s design, the spiritual journey is to be shared. Christianity is very personal but never private or it isn’t distinctively Christian. I am really excited about the Zoe groups because they provide the opportunity to share life together! We do not want to be a church with small groups but a congregation of small groups. There is a huge difference! – Rev. Jeff Gannon, senior pastor
