Q: How do I check-in each morning?
A: When you wake up, post in your Group Me conversation so your leader knows you are awake. If you have not checked in by 5:05, you will receive a text or phone call from your leader.
Q: How long do I pray?
A: One full hour. We suggest you mute your phone during your prayer time. At 6am, check back into the group to interact with everyone.
Q: How many people will be in my group?
A: Our ideal group size is 6-8 people. If we have several people join from a specific area or in a specialty group, the group size may be larger.
Q: Can my husband join?
A: YES! We have groups for men as well. When signing up, just choose the group type, “Men.”
Q: I am in a “Moms of Infants” or “Moms of Special Needs Children” group. How does our check-in work?
A: We have adjusted your check-in for your current life stage. If your baby is nursing, you will spend your time in prayer when you feed your baby in the middle of the night- whether that is 2 am or 5am. If your special needs child wakes in the middle of the night, you pray during that time you are awake with them. If your child does not wake during the night, then you will get up at 5am with the rest of your group.
Q: How do I know my sign-up went through?
A: You will receive a confirmation email to the email address with which you signed up. It should appear in your inbox less than an hour after submitting your information. Be sure to check your spam folder. If you do not receive a confirmation, please sign-up again or email firstname.lastname@example.org to verify your sign-up went through.
Q: When will I be added to my Group Me conversation?
A: Your groups are slowly being set up behind-the-scenes for a couple of weeks prior to the first morning of accountability. You should receive an invitation to your conversation NO LATER than the Friday prior to the first morning. If you have not received an invitation by that Friday, please reach out to us immediately so we can correct the issue.
Q: Can I be in the same group as my friend?
A: We love that you love your friends, but we can’t always accommodate special requests due to many reasons. If you would like to request to be with a specific person, you must enter their name in the “Special Requests” box when you first sign-up. We will do our best to honor your requests, but they are not guaranteed.
Q: I have to leave early for work and need to be getting ready during 5am. Can I still participate?
A: If you need to be focused on more than one thing at 5am, we strongly suggest joining a group in a timezone earlier than your own. You would then have your prayer time from 4am-5am.
Q: Do I have to join GroupMe to participate?
A: Yes. Unless you are in our Deaf/ASL group, that is how we organize our groups. You can access GroupMe from an app on your phone or from a computer, whichever is easiest for you.
Q: What if sign-ups have ended? Can I still join?
A: Unfortunately, no. We work hard to give a two-week sign-up period so that everyone has ample time to join. Once the sign-up form is closed, it is closed until the next session.
Q: My friend didn’t get a confirmation email back but she signed up. Can I just add her to my Group Me myself?
A: Because we want our groups to be small and intimate, we request that no participant add members to the group. If there is a specific need you have in your group, please reach out to your leader.
Q: How do I shop for the t-shirts and mugs I see for #theFives?
A: For each session of #theFives we sell merchandise to help pay for this ministry. You can shop our Etsy store HERE
