When Small Groups began at the Rock four years ago, we launched 67 groups in the first year. Now, four years later, we have over 200 groups. God is so good.
As we prepare to launch another small group season, our hope is that everyone at the Rock will be in a small group. Not only do we want to see every one plugged into a small group, but we want to see individuals grow spiritually. We believe that growing to be like Christ is a continual transformation that takes a lifetime. We also know that this transformation rarely happens alone which is why we want to do it together.
Making Small Groups Easy
Good, encouraging friends can make an enormous difference in our Spiritual lives
To help us grow in Christ and expand our ministry to our unsaved family and friends, the Rock is introducing a new small group model. This model is meant to complement our current small groups, rather than replace them. However, we encourage all of our current small groups to at least try it for six weeks and see what God does. We trust that God will use this series to multiply the number of people impacted for Christ through our church.
The concept of the Life Together Small Groups is simple: make leading a small group as easy as possible, yet powerful and effective. In fact, "leading a group" isn't the right term, so we've replaced it with "hosting a group." If you have a place to meet, a DVD player, and know how to press play (or you've got one of those cool voice-activated DVD players) then you're 90% ready to host a group.
You do not need to teach a Bible Study because the lessons on the DVD do the teaching. You are not asked to come up with discussion questions on your own either. There is a workbook that goes along with the study which provides the discussion questions for you. You simply need a love for God and an open heart for Him to use you.
