A Small Group is a group of usually 8 to 14 people who meet together on a regular basis, either in homes or at the church, to study the Bible, discuss how it applies to their lives, personally connect with each other through fellowship and pray for one another.
Why should I be in one?
Biblically, every Christian is a disciple. A disciple is a learner,
a follower of Jesus Christ. The Small Group is our primary means of helping people grow into spiritually maturing disciples. It’s where we can ask questions and learn from one another. It’s where we learn how God’s Word impacts our daily life and how we can go about making it real and personal.
The Small Group is also where we develop meaningful, supportive relationships with others. It’s just not possible to develop close friendships when you only see one another occasionally on Sunday mornings. Relationships take time to develop – they need regular interaction on a deeper level. That’s what Small Groups specialize in!
When and where do they meet?
Small Groups typically meet weekly (Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Sundays) from September through May. Most groups meet in the evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., but we also offer a group for women that meets on Wednesday mornings and a group that meets on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. Most groups will have a minimal fee that will cover the cost of a book or a study guide.
To sign up for a group, please use the appropriate sign-up sheet during the registration period or call the Small Group Director, Pastor Ed Fedor, at the church office. He can be reached at 440-442-6470.
