Lent Small Groups
A small group is a group of three or more people who gather for 90 minutes each week in a home or at church. In a group you’ll hang out, study the Gospel of Luke, and pray together. You can meet any time that works: days, evenings, Saturday, Sunday….
Groups come in all shapes and sizes – married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids under 20, over 40 – the list goes on. No matter where you are in life there’s a group for you. Find a group that fits you and try it for 5 weeks! We begin the week of February 18.
Why small groups?
Small Groups foster close relationships.
The small group atmosphere is ready-made for building friendships. People talk more in small groups of people. People are quick to recognize needs, and help to meet them. The relationships formed within small groups form a strong fabric within the church. Relationships that are formed outside of the setting of church service are relationships that will endure and strengthen over time.
Small groups provide a way for Christians to live out their faith instead of merely hearing more preaching and teaching.
If Sunday morning is for listening, the the rest of the week is for living. Small groups create a context for Christians to live out their faith in real life.
Who will lead the groups?
Our leaders will be trained to nurture our small groups – to help the group practice listening skills, to open with prayer and lead Bible study as needed – and to keep the conversation moving.
