What is a Small Group?

A Small Group can also be referred to as a care group or a life group. It consists of as many as twelve people who meet regularly for the purpose of building friendships, spiritual renewal and meeting needs in the church and community. Small Groups care about people first. The learning and activities compliment the groups as they become rooted and established in Christ’s love for each other. It is the intention that the caring they experience as a group overflows into the church family and community. To assist the caring of people, each Small Group has a Leader who is a care giver and coordinator for the group. Each of our Small Group Leaders has been chosen because of their leadership skills, their passion for God and compassion for people. They receive training on leading groups and being effective care givers.

The mandate of a Small Group is to work together to grasp the volume of Christ’s love. As a group they have a three part purpose; to grow together (mature), to learn valuable skills for serving God (equip) and to spread the love of Jesus in their community (share) as they are filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
 

Want to start a small group?

If you want to start a small group the ministry staff wants to support you. The first thing that you need to do is find four to six people other people who are not presently part of a Small Group and wish to meet weekly for fellowship, prayer and study. The next step is to decide on a location to hold your meeting. The final step is to speak with Pastor Liz who will assist you in putting together a start-up plan for your Small Group that will include a  Group Leader and an Instructor.
 
Everyone in the church family is encouraged to be part of a Small Group. These types of groups were employed during the early years of Methodism. They are proven effective methods of growing in your relationship with God. As the Small Group ministry continues to evolve there will certainly be a group in which you can feel comfort and become part.
 
Leaders of Small Groups can be Small Group Leaders, Instructors or Hosts (people who offer the use of their home for the weekly gathering). If you sense a call to being a Leader, you can make an appointment to speak with Pastor Liz who will help you discern this calling and will provide you with information about leadership at the North Grenville Community Church. In a perfect world everyone would belong to a Small Group. We don’t live in a perfect world. This doesn’t mean that you can’t mature in your faith, equip yourself to better serve God or find meaningful ways of sharing your faith with others. Everyone should set goals in these areas and find a friend with whom they can be accountable.
