Live Better Groups


Time: Live Better groups will run for 8 consecutive weeks beginning Monday, January 11, 2016 from 7-9pm.

Celebration event: Special recognition during Sunday Assembly March 13, 2016 followed by a lunch get-together for all attendees after the Assembly.



Live Better groups are not therapy; this is a small group (6 to 8 people), peer-to-peer support to help you live your best. Whether you want to be held accountable to your goals, need encouragement for creative projects, or simply want some general "got you back" comradery, Live Better Groups are here to help.

They will last 60-90 minutes and last for 8 weeks, with a get-together for all attendees upon completion.

How they work:

  • Meetings involve group members bringing a challenge or topic that they want to talk about, and others in the group are invited to provide helpful suggestions / perspectives.

  • Usually you’ll split the time between the number of attendees, with each person having a similar amount of time to talk about their topic for the week.

  • The facilitator may have to ask you to wrap up your topic if you go over time. They’ll also be taking notes of what people are working on and what they’ve resolved to do, and circulating these via email.


  • Live Better groups are a safe space where attendees can share without fear of judgement.

  • They’re just as much about helping other people with their goals as they are about getting support for yours. When someone else is sharing, show respect by listening attentively and giving them your full attention.

  • Follow up with action items and accountability

  • For groups to work well it requires seeing the same faces.  Please commit to attending and if you can’t make a session, please email/text your facilitator so that they know not to expect you.
