“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” – Hebrews 10:24-25 (ESV)
Why Join a Small Group?
In a big church, it’s easy to put on a smile, say the right things, and when the last song has finished to bolt out the door. We then return to our normal, everyday lives. But, following Christ is so much more than smiles and small talk. The Gospel has the power to change the world, and that change is accomplished through the lives of individual people, following Christ, one day at a time.
Jesus often spoke on the value of friendships and community. Even as God in the flesh, Christ needed companions. We do as well. That’s where Small Groups come into the picture. A Small Group is, well, just that – usually 8-12 people who are committed to study the Bible together, share each other’s burdens and joys, pray for one another, and generally live life together.
What Do Small Groups Look Like?
For starters, you usually meet in someone’s home. There will more than likely be good food and a generally relaxed atmosphere. You’ll talk about what God is teaching you through His Word, learn from others about what God is doing in their lives, and sometimes you’ll spend some praying with one another. Then, more food.
What Types of Small Groups are Available?
Small Groups focus on different topics throughout the course of the year. But, the heart of Small Groups is always the Bible. There are many different groups – from men’s or women’s, to outdoor activities or crafts, to video studies or different stages of life. Take your pick!
