In today’s busy, disconnected world it’s easier than ever to live isolated, lonely and disconnected and yet we are built to crave deep connection. We not only desire, but need people to walk through life with, share our hopes, desires and struggles with and be deeply known and loved. Unshaken groups help you find your people and foster an environment for you to connect deeply, pray for each other and point each other to Jesus.
Why have an Unshaken Group? There are studies that show that loneliness is the plague of our generation. People are “connected” online and can be in a room full of people but feel lonelier than ever? Why? Because the greatest needs of mankind are to love and be loved and feel worthwhile to self and others. And this fundamental need cannot be met apart from being known.
Unshaken Groups are characterized by two things: Connecting with each other and connecting with God. The goal of these groups is to get past the surface conversation and be vulnerable with each other and to connect with God together through His Word and prayer.
What is an Unshaken Group? An Unshaken Group is group of women who desire to connect deeply, pray for each other and get into God's Word. If it's a large group, they would break into smaller groups that meets regularly to connect on a personal level, pray for each other and point each other to the Lord.
