This is not good. As a matter of fact, in Sunday's message i said,
"for those of you who only attend a worship experience - you aren't connected anywhere else, i petition you to get plugged into a 'BFG', because if you don't get plugged in YOU WILL EVENTUALLY LEAVE HYDE PARK. You will - you'll leave and you'll tell people that we are 'just too big' and we don't want you to do that! If you don't get 'plugged-in' you're gonna fall through the cracks. You need a place where somebody knows who you are - a place at hyde park where you are 'doing life' with others."
We are willing to do anything we can to help people to connect with God and with people - we are constantly looking for ways to do this. It's never easy to get new people to actually connect. I think maybe it's their fear of commitment that keeps them from taking the next right step. So, in the process, they just continue to wait... often times never finding their place.
In an effort to keep this from happening, we are just under 2 weeks away from a new opportunity for people who are "unconnected" to connect - bfg grouplink. Grouplink is:
a brand new 6 week connection that allows you to go deeper in your relationship with God and to meet new people at hyde park. The short 6 week commitment allows you to see if the group is a 'good fit' for you!
We are actually offering 3 great studies to kick this thing off - they are:

Are you connected to a bfg? Are you looking for something new but just haven't stepped out to "try the waters"? Are you connected to a bfg but feel like maybe it's time to "step it up" at hp, maybe in a leadership capacity (we do have some opportunities coming up that you could do this!). Maybe you have a friend attending whom you have not been able to get to take that next right step... come on, guys - help a brother out!
