We at Grace Community Church launched a series called Concrete yesterday. We’re doing it as an alignment with our small groups, launching new groups whose goal is to engage people in authentic community for the 5 weeks of this series.
We’ve produced a DVD and small group study guide for our groups to track along with our Sunday sermons.
We do these alignments during series where you would feel comfortable inviting your friends and neighbors. And we construct our small group discussion guide so that if you have people you’ve invited who are far from God come into your home to do this study with you, they’re able to track along with the discussion, add in their own personal experience, and take a step of faith…whatever that looks like for them.
Who are small groups for?
Our small groups aren’t just for the mature. But they’re also not just for those new to faith.
They’re for everyone. Because we feel that everyone needs the opportunity to discuss the Scriptures, process life, and build relationships…in an environment that’s safe to explore faith.
For this alignment study, we’ve chosen topics that are accessible and challenging to people wherever they are in their spiritual journey. We’ll be exploring foundational issues, challenging people to take a step towards God in their prayer life, commitment to the local church, giving, reading their Bible, and sharing their faith.
