Small Group Activity!Don't Forget to Sign Up at the Bottom
What is a Small Group? A small group is a gathering, usually 6-10 people, who meet to offer mutual acceptance, support for one another's goals, and encouragement for life's challenges. They may discuss the Bible, or other book with spiritual focus, to discover truths for their own lives--and to pray for one another. Joining a group entails a commitment to attendance and any reading assignments.
If you sometimes wonder why you're here, would like to know more about prayer, how to read the Bible, or live your faith day to day, a small group may be helpful. In a small group, it's OK to talk about all of these things with others who are on a similar journey. The chances are that in listening you'll find out who you really are, learn more about who God is, and discover resources that will energize your life.
