The Circle of 8 mission is to help people become better acquainted with each other and to develop friendships within the church family. This is done through group fellowship in an informal, strictly social environment. Single and married adults are sorted into groups of eight, and each group plans its own monthly activities, taking turns hosting the get-togethers. Members’ names are shuffled and sorted into new groups every four months to promote wider circles of acquaintances and friends.
