WHY JOIN A SMALL GROUP?

You will begin to really feel like part of God´s family

Most people who have been a part of a group say the greatest benefit is the close relationships and friendships that develop. They will often telephone or text each other during the week to share an urgent prayer request or an exciting answer. You´ll discover that your needs and problems are not unique - we´re all in the same boat. It helps to know that others are facing the same difficulties, or have lived through them and learned spiritual principles in the process.

Prayer will become more meaningful to you

Many people are hesitant to pray in front of others, especially in a large church. In a group, you will learn to participate in prayer by having a conversation together with God. No one is pressured to pray, but as you become comfortable, you´ll be able to pray and be drawn together as we find answers to the needs in our lives.

You will be able to handle stress and pressure better

Groups provide excellent support in times of crisis, change, and stress. You´ll have a sense of stability and security knowing there are people who really care for you and are committed to standing with you.

When someone loses a job, or a family member has an extended illness, or a mother needs a babysitter - these are practical needs that will be naturally taken care of through your small group. We have heard countless times that people would not have made it through a difficult time if it hadn´t been for the support of their group.

You will be a New Testament Christian!

1 Corinthians and Acts is very clear about how God intends for His people to grow and have their needs met in the church. Living Faith will never be able to hire enough professional pastors to meet all the individual needs in our church family. God never intended for it to be that way (Eph. 4:11-16)!




Consider:

"They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Every day they continued to meet together... they broke bread in their homes and ate together." — Acts 2:42, 44, 46

"Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the Good News." — Acts 5:42

"Aquilla and Priscilla greet you warmly in the Lord and so does the church that meets at their house." — 1 Cor. 16: 19
