A small group is a community of people who meet together regularly to learn together how to apply God's truth to daily living, bear one another's burdens , encourage one another, love one another, serve one another.
The Bible teaches that God created each of us to be in relationship, first with Him, then with other believers. In a small group, people have the opportunity to know each other and be known. This is why small groups are the primary place for spiritual growth and life changing relationships.
Life groups meet in homes, at the church, at coffee shops, or restaurants, at different times of the day and different days of the week. Generally, groups are 6 or 14 people (individuals or couples) who meet for 1 to 2 hours. Although groups vary, there will be a time of fellowship and prayer, along with a discussion about a book of the bible or an inspirational book all are reading. It is a safe environment to ask questions or talk about life's struggles. A life group is a place to belong and a place to become a mature follower of Christ.
