Small Groups

Living your Strengths Journey Groups:

These six week small groups are offered after you take the Gallup online assessment (at the back of the Living your Strengths book) and when you find out your top five talent themes. The small group experience helps you to learn more fully the natural talents that God has given you and also to journey with others who are learning theirs as well. These groups are offered several times throughout the year. See the church bulletin for more details.

Coaching:

One on one coaching is offered (free) to those who have completed their online assessment from Gallup. The coaching session takes between 1-1/2 hour per time. This opportunity helps you to understand yourself more fully with the help of a trained Gallup coach. We have six coaches for this parish for you to choose from. See the LYS link.

Discovering your Charisms:

This workshop is offered at our parish for those that are seeking to find their Spiritual Gifts that were given at Baptism. This discernment process will help the individual find more clues to what their “call” is. Many times the call comes within a call. This discernment process occurs with the aid of ‘Discernment Groups”. These groups meet for six week intervals.

Interviewing:

The “Interviewing” process is similar to the “Coaching” process. Interviewing is a one on one meeting with an “Interviewer” for the person who completed the Called and Gifted Workshop and finished the gifts assessment tool. This 1 ½ hour process will help the person narrow down the Charism (or supernatural gift) to one so that the discernment process is easier. The Interviewing process is one part of the Discovering of the Charisms. Meetings are by appointment only. Contact Kathy Diener at 704.362.5047 ext. 230.

Centering Prayer/ Lectio Divina Weekly Group:

Are you more contemplative and desire to know others who are like minded? This group meets every week (see link) to pray together and share their journey. Contact Margie Mullis or Judy O’Toole for more information.

Eight Themes:

This Small Group learns how to pray with Scripture following the Ignatian method. This eight week experience is held twice a year or on individual requests. Praying, listening and sharing are all components of this wonderful journey. Contact Kathy Diener if you are interested in this. Watch bulletin announcements for upcoming opportunities.
