About Oikos Groups
Oikos Groups are multigenerational groups that meet regularly in their local neighborhoods and networks to practice a rhythm of life called the Transforming GRACES:
Reflect on the Word
Ask deeper questions
Commune with God
Serve your neighbor
Oikos Groups meet in East Memphis and Midtown, Bartlett and Cordova, and Germantown and Collierville, and more groups are always being set up so that families have an easily accessible group to attend.
A rhythm of life together
Many of the events of Oikos Groups take place around tables and meal time, which provides a more comfortable environment for inviting friends and family to gather, encourage, and worship together.
Each month, Oikos Groups follow a rhythm of activities:
Eat and play
Pray and reflect
Worship: The first Sunday of every month is spent worshipping in homes at the Oikos Groups. A group also meets at the Gathering Place -- so please come visit any time! Families sing, pray, read Scripture, and take Communion together and then often spend the afternoon eating and playing.
Eat and play: One day during the month, an Oikos Group will get together just to play and celebrate God's good Creation. This is a great time to invite friends and family to relax together and encourage one another.
Pray and reflect: One evening during the month, the adults of an Oikos Group will gather (without kids) to spend time sharing thanksgivings and challenges, praying and inviting God's Spirit into our lives, and reading and discussing Scripture or topics of spiritual formation.
