Small Group Leaders

 

Purpose for Small Groups (the “Why”)

•              Meet outside the four walls of the church

•              Develop and foster new and existing relationships

•              Offer an atmosphere that, for some people, may prove more relaxed and comfortable than a church setting

•              Provide opportunity for discussion/study on a wide range of topics

•              Fellowship

 

Standards

                •              Topics/series will align with Biblical values

                •              Will promote spiritual, mental, and/or physical growth

                •              If meeting at a restaurant, patronize/support the establishment.  For example, no small group should meet at a restaurant/fast food and yet not make any purchases.

                •              May meet in a home or public venue

                •              Display Christ-like attitudes and behaviors towards each other

                •              Begin and end on time
