Do I need to be in a small group?
No. We just want to make these available for anyone interested.
When will small groups meet?
Small groups will meet every other week, on any day that works for them. Currently, Kenwood has a service every Wednesday night for Bible teaching and prayer. We don’t want to overwhelm anyone’s schedule, so we are going to move our Wednesday night service to every other week, with small groups meeting on the alternate weeks. This schedule will begin after the fall business meeting.
What should I do with my children during small group?
We want to leave this up to each group. Some ideas: parents in the group can find a babysitter (perhaps pitching in with other parents in the group); they can swap childcare with a different group that meets at a different time; or, if everyone in the group is okay with it, parents can include their children in as much of the the meeting as they feel comfortable.
I’m in an accountability group, is that group supposed to dissolve?
No. If you’re in an accountability group and would rather just stay there, and not join a small group, that’s fine. If you’d like to do both, that’s fine, too. If you’d like to be in a small group with people from your accountability group, let us know when you sign up and we’ll do what we can.
What will small group meetings look like?
We want small groups to be about fellowship, studying the Bible, and prayer. Small group leaders will be given questions for study and application drawn from the most recent sermon, and this will drive the study time. For fellowship and prayer, each group can do what works best. We would like each group to include 30-45 minutes of gender-specific time for men and women to hold one another accountable and pray for one another.
