The NCS Trumbull chapter started up in late 2009, to serve the men of Trumbull, Shelton, Stratford, Bridgeport and Milford. Several of our members have experienced the New Canaan Society meetings and retreats and wanted to provide a local outlet for men who are curious about examining their faith. We try to meet every Saturday morning.
The format does not focus on speakers but on men sharing their struggles and victories. We have 4 guidelines: 1. Las Vegas rule, 2. No advice offered unless asked for, 3. participate as much or as little as you are lead and 4. If you don’t have fun don’t come back. We always close with an opportunity to pray for each other.
About the New Canaan Society
Nationally over 10,000 men meet weekly across 52 chapters nationwide. Each chapter has its own flavor and is directed locally.
Built around a group of 4-8 guys a chapter will eventually produce small G.A.S groups where deeper friendships are born and built. G.A.S. groups typically meet on the off weeks of the chapter meetings. Many chapters will do a dinner once a quarter or something else social.
Once a year the movement has an opportunity to be together at the National Retreat Weekend in March.
