My Small Group Is Better Than Yours!

Why people love their small groups
Page 3 of 3

I get texts and calls from group members in the middle of the week wanting an update on my walk and my prayer requests. It's awesome to feel supported and loved and held accountable like that! —Jill Hathaway, Illinois

My small group has been reading Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer and decided to try out Bonhoeffer's meeting plan, which includes praying from Psalms, singing hymns, reading Scripture, and eating together. It was an interesting experiment. The prayer time at the end was one of the best group prayer times I've ever had. There was a long list of prayer needs, but praying for each of them didn't become just a list to get through. Because the group is slowly becoming a true community, I was able to genuinely pray for the things that they need and the group was able to participate in that prayer without becoming bored. —Will Johnston, Washington, D.C.

Our group is great because we have a shared vision for helping others and we're actively living that out. —Andrew McCann, Illinois
