Have you ever gone to church and wanted to hang out and be a part of a group like you see others doing, but you just didn’t know how to go about doing it? Are you someone that enjoys the message on Sundays, but feels awkward approaching the Pastor or anyone else about a question you may have? Do you have a desire to make some new friendships? If any of these apply to you, joining a Small Group just may be the answer.
Here you’ll be able to meet others on a regular basis where you’ll be able to laugh, share, grow, pray, and learn more about God in a trusting, confidential, and loving environment. Small Groups are where authentic friendships are formed and strengthened, and where one can serve each other.
Furthermore, the Small Groups’ intimate environment encourages questions and comments about the study, about the Bible, and about Christian life in general.
Other attributes of a Small Group include:
• Learning about the power of prayer
• Connecting with ministries of the church
• Creating community
• A sense of belonging
• Discovering and utilizing your spiritual gifts
• Learning leadership skills
Come join the fun, there are always new groups being formed!
What is a Small Group?
A Small Group is a small community of believers and seekers gathering regularly for the purpose of: getting to know God through studying the Bible; forming meaningful relationships; praying for each other; and worshipping God together.
Generally the size of a group ranges from four to 12 people, and there are several types of groups at Wintersburg that cater towards men, women, couples, families, new believers, and regional preferences. Although some groups meet at church, most meetings are held at people’s homes.
Small Group Core Values
The Scripture passages that we base our Core Values on are:
“And they were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” – Acts 2:42
“And let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” – Hebrews 10:24-25
Therefore, we value in our Small Groups:
• Meeting Consistently
• Biblical Teaching
• Accepting and Loving One Another
