Core Groups FAQ

These are some of the more frequently asked questions about Core Groups at Eastside. If you have more questions, please email [email protected] and he should be able to help you out.

Are all the groups weekly?

Most groups are weekly, though some are bi-weekly. Look under the group information for whether it’s bi-weekly.

Do the groups share a meal? 

Whether groups share a meal will be decided by the groups themselves. Most will likely share a meal or at least have snacks of some kind.

Can I stay with the same group between semesters?

Yes, folks can stay with the same group. However, there’s no guarantee that other members of your group will remain or that it will have the same leader. We encourage folks to try new groups and meet new people.

Is childcare offered and how is it offered? 

This depends on the group. Some groups will not offer childcare. However, many do and if you need childcare, it would be best to sign up for a group with childcare. Groups that do offer childcare do it either by paying for childcare or doing shared childcare between groups.
