Connecting Spiritual Friends


Attending a weekly group is one of the best ways to experience community in Access, while pursuing a growing relationship with God. It’s a place to form friendships, engage in spiritual conversations, and share life. Groups might jumpstart conversations around Sunday messages*, the Daily Office**, the reading of Scripture, or a topical study, but beyond learning about the spiritual life, our hope is that we also experience the spiritual life together.

* Sunday Messages

Listen to our recorded Sunday messages

**What is the Daily Office?

The Daily Office is a structured approach to daily prayer and Scripture reading. It encourages praying and reading Scriptures according to a schedule that is also followed by the larger community of faith. This year, many in the Access community, including many of our groups, will be using the book A Guide to Prayer for All God's People to provide structure and content for their devotional life with God (a limited number of books are available at Access for $12). Groups practicing the Daily Office come together to pray, to read Scripture, and to share their reflections with one another. 

How to determine which weekly guide to use: 

A new week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday if using the Red and Blue books.  So for example, if today is Monday January 9, we will be using the guide labeled Sunday between January 14 and 20. If using the Green and Black books, a new week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday.
