Interested in leading a group for the summer 2024 session beginning June 2nd? Check out these ideas to get some inspiration or start a group that you are passionate about:

Know Group ideas (Activity group)

1. Walks on The Huckleberry Trail - great for anybody, especially
families with kids & pets.

2. Exercising Groups - work out together in the mornings!

3. Biking - ride together on the Huckleberry Trail or mountain bike at Pandapas Pond!

4. Hiking Trails - go hiking together.

5. Basketball Watch Party - small gatherings at a house or local Bar
& Grill.

other gamers at Blue Ridge to play together.

7. Dinner Parties - each household in the group takes turns hosting

8. Paint Nights.

9. Netflix Binge Group - pick a new show every month or week and binge every episode together as a group. Once everyone
is finished, get together for dinner and talk about it!

10. The Chosen Group - gather some friends and watch The Chosen

11. Support Local - get a group together that eats out at a different
locally-owned restaurant each week.

13. Children’s Museum - get a group of other parents and pick a day of
the week to meet at the Children’s Museum in the NRV Mall.

Go Group ideas (Serving group)

1. Food Drives - you can do it virtually or in person for any local organization.

2. Handyman Groups - start a group of people who are good at fixing stuff. People are in need of this kind of stuff all the time!

3. Valley Cleanup Group - pick a different public outdoor space for each gathering and clean up any trash left behind (Montgomery County Parks and Recreation is a great source for ideas).

4. Teacher Appreciation Group - This group could do something nice for local teachers on a regular basis (write letters, give gifts, offer help, pay for lunch, etc).

5. Chow Drive - a group that organizes a food and toy drive for local animal shelters.

6. Neighborhood Group - partner with another family in your neighborhood and have an ice cream party in the front yard for your neighbors.

Grow Group ideas (Study group)

1. Follow the Passage Group - by far our most accessible Grow Group
to participate in and lead; gather some friends to discuss the passage that was taught on Sunday. Ask Cody for a quick run-through of the Group Discussion Guide to get started.

2. Bible Studies - either in-person or virtual. Need help getting
started? Just ask!

3. Reading Groups - this can be as simple as reading any book
together by a certain date and then getting coffee or dinner at the end to talk about it (or do it virtually).

4. Video Study Series - there are hundreds of different Bible-based
video studies out there from some of the best teachers in the world. If you found one you like, let us know, and form a group to unpack it!
