What is a small group?Small groups generally consist of 6-16 people that meet in homes, coffee shops, at the church, etc. They can be comprised of couples, singles, men only, women only, mixed or similar life stages, or even around a specific affinity.
Why should I join a small group?
We were created by God to live in community. The account of creation tells us that the idea of a person living in isolation is “not good” (Gen. 2:18). Being part of a Small Group is an intentional step towards being connected to others in relationships.
It is in relationship with others that our walk with God is taken out of the theoretical, and put into the reality of how we live. Talking through a Bible story or passage brings the truth about God and His ways into a more personal and passionate level.
The two great commands tell us that we should “Love God” and “Love others”. In a small group we can put this into practice. Over 50 “one another” passages in the Bible tell us to do such things as to encourage one another, serve one another, and pray for one another. We can’t know everyone in a large church well enough to be involved this deeply, but we can with a Small Group.
How do small groups function?Individual groups decide the day, time, location and frequency of meeting together. They may choose to eat together, pray together, serve together, and/or study together. Most CFC Small Groups use Drive It Home, our message-based curriculum designed to "drive home" the weekend teaching.
