In Homes

crowded-house-banner

     At Infusion Church, we are on mission to “lead people to and through a life changing relationship with Jesus and his family for the glory of God”. One of the most effective ways, we believe, in accomplishing this mission is to invest our energy and resources into the growth and replication of our small group meetings called "Crowded Houses".

What are “Crowded Houses”?

     “Crowded Houses” are Infusion Church’s small group ministry. It’s where much of “church life” happens. While every Crowded House is unique, all of them have some general features and goals:

  • Gather weekly for the purpose of loving God, loving each other, and loving our neighbor
  • Discuss and apply questions from Sunday’s sermon
  • Talk through and live out life’s joys and trials together
  • Pray for one another and meet one another’s needs
  • Build relationships with others in the Infusion Community
  • Collaborate to share the gospel and serve the community in Escondido or the surrounding area
  • Share a meal or snack together (each Crowded House is different)
  • Note: As we grow, we expect that specialty groups will form to focus on a particular need or topic – new to Infusion, new to faith, financial stewardship, book studies – are but a few of the possibilities.

How do they work?

  • Everyone who might be interested is asked to sign-up for their Crowded House prior to the start of each quarter (see dates below); this is meant to help the hosts and leaders better plan for their Crowded House gathering. Also, it encourages a greater level of commitment and accountability for all members of the group.
  • Crowded Houses meet for increments (“quarters”) of ten weeks, throughout the course of the year, with breaks in between (see Crowded House Schedule below).
  • At the end of the quarter, you are free to sign-up for a new Crowded House if you like, renew membership in your current Crowded House, or take a break – it’s up to you!
  • Most Crowded Houses will aim to organize one social gathering and one community outreach/evangelism event per quarter.

Crowded House Schedule: 

  • Winter Quarter 2017 (Weeks of January 16th, 2017 – March 25th, 2017)
  • Spring Quarter 2017 (Weeks of April 10th - June 23rd, 2017)
  • Summer Quarter 2017 (Details below...)
    - During the summer, groups will not meet regularly, although they may choose to do so.
    - However, it is recommended that each group have at least one social gathering (barbecue, beach trip, dinner and a movie, Padres game, etc.) and at least one outreach (bring food and clothing to the homeless shelter, write letters to the prisoners, etc.) to build community and share the love of Christ throughout the summer.
  • Fall Quarter 2016 (TBA)

How do I sign up?

     Sign-ups for Spring Quarter will be held Sunday, April 3rd & Sunday, April 10th. You can either sign-up at the "Crowded House booth" after services during these weeks, or complete THIS FORM online. If you are already a member of a Crowded House, we still ask that you sign-up during these weeks so that Crowded House hosts and leaders can plan effectively. You may also sign-up by attending the first meeting of your Crowded House for each quarter.
