Study Groups: FAQ, How Do I Start a Group?
A.R.E. Greater Boston Area

“For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”

—Matthew 18:20

Wanted: Study Group Hosts & Members | Start up a new group with the help and support of our study group coordinator Patty McCarthy (call 1-781-878-1974). To find out more, please keep reading.

  1. Where would my group meet?
    Generally, groups regularly meet at the home of the volunteer host. Public spaces are also an option: the Quincy, MA group meets at a church. Other groups have met at libraries.
  2. What does it take to start my own group?
    Starting a new group takes only one person with a strong interest in the Cayce material, a consistant approach, and the willingness to gather together with others. For details on what a study group is like, kindly read this FAQ. If this interests you, please contact Patty.
  3. How do I find people who want to come?
    Patty will help find folks interested in attending your new group. At the first meeting there might be only one other person there... or there may be over 20. It depends on many factors, some of which include the size of the local population, number of local A.R.E. members (they’re the most likely to be interested), and, of course, how busy everyone’s schedule is. Over time you’ll find that there are those who attend reguarly and they will form the core fellowship group.
  4. How do I get started?
    Please contact Patty McCarthy. She’ll provide you with the guidance and materials needed to get your new Search for God study group going. And going, and going... She’s been doing this for decades and has many ways to assist. You’ll not be on your own!
  5. Can I get info to help me evaluate whether starting up a group is right for me?
    Sure. Patty can provide additional details.

(This should be called the Patty Page.)
