Lots of believers have been alone and lonely for fellowship with like-minded believers–some, like me, for many years. These people are hungry to find someone to fellowship with.
There is a large exodus from mainline Churchianity brands (Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Megas etc) and millennials reluctance to join a church. These folks are looking for their next spiritual stepping stone. They need to ask Father Yahweh to direct them and then reach out. Not only did Annie (my wife) and I connect with a fantastic study group (of 5), I recently found a group right down the road from us! We found both of these through Scattered Brethren, listed below.
I happened to be on the Facebook biblical unitarian group this morning and, in answer to my query, one believer answered with a paper he wrote. Be warned there is a list of cultish groups and are labeled as such. Not all are home churches.
Wait. Before you go to the list, check out this new BT feature on the new birth (<— hover)
Also new, see how this works, just hover: John 3:16 and the wikipedia entries Socinian. I have installed these tips at the top of each page.

For Christian Monotheists who are seeking fellowship, the following is a list of different churches, congregations, communities, groups, fellowships and contacts who share the faith in the one God, Father Almighty, who is the only true God, the God of Jesus Christ (the Son of God). Ways they differ are listed under separate main headings.
Humanitarian (sometimes called Dynamic Monarchian, Socinian) Christology means belief in Jesus Christ as a sinless human being. The Bible is held to be authoritative. This includes Baptist type, Adventist type, Pentecostal types of groups.
Subordinationist (sometimes called Arian) Christology means belief in the person of Jesus Christ to have been a pre-existent spirit, becoming human later on. The Bible is held to be authoritative. They are mainly Adventist or Sabbatarian groups.
Uncategorized/Open means it is unclear based on their statement of beliefs what their stance is to either of the above beliefs or that they are open to either possibility. Those listed under Liberal/Progressive vary between each other but mainly share the attempt to tolerate differing beliefs. The Bible is not usually held to be authoritative. It should be understood that some groups may not be properly Unitarian even if that is in their name, some not even Christian at all, but even within those groups, you may find Unitarian Christians. The oldest of groups are found under here.
Controlling/Authoritarian groups are cults or cultish – they believe that salvation is only possible within their own groups, and/or systematically practice shunning. Be careful in dealing with these groups. They tend to be the largest groups in terms of numbers of members, so they may be the easiest to find. They are probably ok to visit, but joining is another matter entirely. Consider the other ones listed earlier before considering these, or consider setting up a Bible study of your own.
