10 Reasons You Should Join A Small Group

I really believe that small groups are a crucial part of our discipleship process. They offer a unique environment of life-on-life prayer, support, encouragement, accountability, and growth. On Sunday I gave the following ten reasons as to why our folk should be in one of our midweek prayer and Bible-study groups if they aren’t already:

  1. You’ll find a warm welcome from friends who will encourage you and pray for you
  2. You’ll grow in your knowledge, love, and service of the Lord Jesus
  3. You’ll go deeper in applying God’s word to your life and situation
  4. You’ll find a place where you can use your gifts in encouraging and praying for others
  5. You’ll find a place to practically work out the 59 ‘one-anothers’ of the New Testament
  6. You’ll see, experience, and hear first-hand accounts of answered prayer
  7. You’ll get to experience the joy of accepting and offering hospitality
  8. You’ll enjoy great social times (which mostly revolve around food!)
  9. You’ll have a group of people to connect your friends into
  10. You’ll have a great time!
