• CURRENT CONNECTION GROUPS

    This season of connection groups runs the first week of February through the first week of May.

    I (want to) Love Winter!

    Let's celebrate the snow and cold of Minnesota winters! We'll enjoy fun winter activities like sledding, ice skating, making snowmen and forts, and more! Back-up activity of hot cocoa and board games if the weather is dangerously cold or blizzardy.

    Volunteering

    Let's connect and serve our neighbors by volunteering! The current plan is to volunteer once a month each at Feed My Starving Children (global) and People Serving People (local), but if you have other ideas and charities that you would like to support, the list can definitely change. Due to the availabilities/schedules of individual charities, the times we pick to volunteer are extremely flexible. We will determine a time that is best for everyone when signups are finished. We will alternate weeks with Jenny's Outdoor Activity group.

    Schedule:

    First and Third Week of Each Month. Tentatively Tuesday, but can be any day that works best for us.

     

    Cost:

    Free

     

    Kid Friendly?

    Yes

     

    Other Notes:

    We will usually be meeting at the location of the charity. Some weeks, we may meet before volunteering to meet and have fellowship and catch up—but this will be up to the group. Rides can be arranged, so don't be shy if you need a ride!

    The Friend Zone

    Being put in the Friend Zone usually sucks, but not this time! This is a fun-focused playgroup for grown ups. We’re gonna sample a mix of eateries, drinkeries, and activities all over the Twin Cities. Ideas off the top of my head: mini golf @ Can Can Wonderland, hike Minnehaha Falls, Quiplash game night, Up Down Arcade Bar, Riverview Theatre, Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge...you get the idea. The goal is to spark friendship through tom-foolery. The Twin Cities is a lonely place, so bring a friend, a neighbor, a coworker, a stranger you met on the bus...whatevs. The more the merrier!

    Social Entrepreneurship Gathering

    This is a gathering of people passionate about business and social impact. From for-profits to nonprofits, this is a time for anyone who has a project or wants to learn more about social entrepreneurship to meet, talk, and collaborate. The structure will change week-to-week from being a work session to a collective brainstorming time — if at all interested show up and we’ll figure it out!

    Coaching 101

    Resources: Coaching Hacks by Jonathan Reitz (e-version available on Amazon for $8.99)

     

    Participation: The goal is to have every person attend every session. We will be doing peer coaching in order to build skills and partnership, so participation in the whole session is preferable. Life does happen and conflicts are real, and missing a week will not prevent you from participating.

     

    Outcome:

    • Have a clear understanding of the goal of coaching 
    • Have been introduced to and practiced coaching concepts 
    • Have a plan of where to employ coaching in life.

    Format: Sessions will involve conversational teaching and learning as well as practicing of concepts through peer coaching.

     

    Invitation: This Connection Group is not just for Corner Church people. Please extend an invitation to other people in your world.
