CURRENT CONNECTION GROUPS
Beginning of February through the beginning of May
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: At the end of this Connection Group participants should: 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.
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.

First and Third Week of Each Month. Tentatively Tuesday, but can be any day that works best for us.
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!
We connect with each other We read a chapter of Judges. When you register for this group, you will receive the week's questions a few days early. This is not homework, but an opportunity to look ahead if you want.
Most Saturday mornings at 9:30a

the Friend Zone
Being put in the Friend Zone usually sucks, but not this one! This is basically a fun-focused playgroup for grown ups. We’re gonna sample a crazy 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!
Corner Coffee North Loop
