"Worship should be an important part of any small group, but we don't always know how to approach it. Things often get a little painful when people try to re-create a Sunday-style worship service in a small living room, but there is still a place for singing in community. There's also a place for other methods of worship, like corporate prayer, responsive readings, and other activities.

This downloadable resource can help your group members experience a balanced and meaningful time of worshiping our great God."
