What does a Small Group Look Like?
An Online Small Group is a group of 4-12 people who commit to meeting weekly, or bi-weekly using an online video platform, for 60-90 minutes to share and grow together in Christ. During the online meeting the group will usually watch a video (or read provided text) and then engage in honest, open discussion using a series of questions.
Why do I need a Small Group?
