WHAT ARE MEETUPS?
We believe fun can be a spiritual discipline.
Meetups offer an opportunity for connection through casual gatherings, shared meals, studying truth, serving cities... any number of fun opportunities exist to connect with people that like the same things you do.
Has finding community been a challenge? Sometimes knowing where to start can be tough, and finding community can often feel forced when you’re brand new - or even a long time member. Meetups break the tension between strangers by bringing people together around a common interest.

Whether it’s hiking, reading, painting, or eating tacos—anyone can host a meet-up centered on something they love doing. You can host one by yourself, with a friend, or even as a Life Group.

Frequently Asked Questions

Meetups help provide a space for connection around a common interest. Life Groups are the heartbeat of Resurrection Church and provide a place to share your life, study the Word, and support others through discipleship, accountability, and mission. Life Groups are where you can make close bonds, learn the joy of serving others, and take your next step in following Jesus.
Meetups will help you connect with the wider church family by doing things you love together. Many group members appreciate the long-lasting, committed relationships they've found in their Life Groups, but may feel disconnected from others in their life stage, or from the people they see at Sunday Gatherings. Meetups help fill this gap in relationship.
Upcoming Meetups will be listed on the Meetups homepage, as well as, occasionally shared on Resurrection Church's social media page, or in our weekly newsletter. Also, at the beginning of each month, meet-ups will be announced from stage at the Sunday gathering. For the most part, general ongoing traffic to the meet-ups homepage should help give exposure to new Meetups, as well as word of mouth and personal invitations from the host.
Meetups are events hosted by you, the host, so the liability for meet-up hosts is equivalent to inviting friends to participate in a private event you’ve organized. Participants for meet-ups with potential physical dangers complete the Meetup Digital Waiver which releases the host and Resurrection Church from physical liability. If you have a concern about liability, we would suggest not hosting at your home.
Meetups are independently hosted by the people of Resurrection Church. They are external events planned and supervised by the Meetup hosts themselves, and Resurrection communicates their events to our church body. To limit liability, we require background checks for all Meetup hosts, as well as Release Waivers for participants in Meetups that involve potential physical danger.
Meetups communicated by Resurrection Church should revolve around a primary activity that is not explicitly controversial. “Trivia Night” (at a pub in your neighborhood) makes sense. On the other hand, “Let’s get drinks” does not, because we don’t know what is going on behind-the-scenes in someone’s life. We ask that you use wisdom and discernment when planning your event and seek to be more inclusive of a larger audience.
Each event should be listed with a capacity limit. If your event does not have one listed, email firstname.lastname@example.org right away so it can be added. If not enough people have RSVPd, don't be discouraged! This can happen from time to time. We encourage you to try reorganizing your Meetup at a later date with more notice, or consider trying a different idea.
In general, Meetup hosts and participants must fund their own event and provide their own venue. Resurrection Church may consider helping fund your meet-up is if it is service or mission oriented. Contact email@example.com for more info .
