WHAT IS A SMALL GROUP?
A small group is a group of 8-12 people who meet regularly to enjoy authentic Christian fellowship and pursue spiritual growth together. 
 
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO BE DOING IN THE SMALL GROUP?
While there are a few different formats, the majority of groups start with a time of casual fellowship, then focus on Bible study, and finish with prayer.
 
HOW MUCH OF MY TIME IS THIS GOING TO TAKE?
Small groups usually meet weekly for two hours.
 
WHERE AND WHEN DO THEY MEET?
Groups can meet on any day of the week, but most take place on a weeknight in people’s homes throughout the area.
 
WHO ELSE IS GOING TO BE IN THE GROUP?
It depends on the focus of the group, but most groups consist of a mix of different people (varying ages, singles and couples, etc.).
 
WHAT IS THE REQUIRED COMMITMENT?
You must be willing to commit to three-month blocks of time (quarterly). If you feel you’d like to try another group or take a break at the end of the quarter you’re free to do so. 
 
AM I GOING TO HAVE TO TALK OR PRAY, OR CAN I JUST SIT AND LISTEN?
Small groups are like a family – sometimes you talk and sometimes you listen. No one is forced to talk or pray. Everyone moves at a different pace, and you are allowed to go at yours.
 
HOW MUCH DO I HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT THE BIBLE TO BE IN A SMALL GROUP?
Nothing! Small groups are about learning the Bible, not debating it or being tested on it. You are welcome no matter where you are in your knowledge of God’s Word.
