Small Group FAQs

Small Groups are a priority step in the growth of our relationship with Jesus Christ.  It is also a step that creates many questions - so read below for answers:

What is a Small Group?

Small Groups are groups of individuals who meet for fellowship, Bible study, prayer, and accountability.
 
Why should I join a Small Group?

Here are four very important reasons. First, you'll begin to understand the Bible better in a Small Group (there's nothing like the chance to ask questions and learn from other people's experiences). Second, you'll begin to feel like you're part of God's family (and not just a face in the crowd). Third, prayer will become more meaningful for you (your friends will be praying for you and with you). Finally, you'll be able to handle stress and pressure better (when your friends are there for you life is a very different experience).
  
What happens at a Small Group meeting?

Every group is different but there are some common denominators. Most groups have a time for just hanging out, talking about the week and what's going on in life. The central component is a study of something very relevant to the members of the group. It may be the study of the Book of Romans or the Gospel of John. Or it might be a study like dealing with stress or building better relationships from a biblical perspective. Groups encourage discussion and create an opportunity to pray for each other.
 
Where do the Small Groups meet?

Most of our groups meet at Legacy Life Enrichment Center or a place convenient for the group. 
Is there childcare available?
Every group deals with this issue in its own way. Some of the groups go in together and make arrangements for a baby sitter or take turns watching the children. Other groups require each participant to make their own arrangements.
 
What if I don't like the first group I try?

We encourage people to give the group you try a couple visits. Anytime you're trying something new, it may need to grow on you. In addition, it may take a couple of times to begin to feel like you're in the right place. But at the same time, we want you to find a group that fits you! So don't be afraid to get a second opinion if you don't feel really good about the group you try.
 
Can I start my own group?
