What Does A Small Group Look Like?
Simply put, it’s a small group of people – anywhere from 4 to 14, who commit to meeting on an on-going basis either weekly or bi-weekly for 60-90 minutes to learn, pray, share and grow together in Christ. Groups usually meet at someone’s home or in some cases, here at the parish. A typical meeting starts in prayer followed a 20-30 minute video after which there is discussion using a series of pre-set questions relating to the video. Group members can share their thoughts and engage in open, honest discussion.
Why Join A Small Group?
Life was not meant to be lived alone! A Small Group gives you an extended family that encourages, supports and grows in faith with you. It’s a place where you can search and ask questions about life and God. Our hope is to have everyone at Holy Family meeting in Small Groups; learning, praying, sharing and growing together in Christ.
Invite a friend to join you!
Why YOU need a small group…
Life is busy and you’re probably thinking “I just don’t have time, how an I possibly commit to anything else? I’m already overloaded and overwhelmed as it is!” Well, guess what? That is probably the best reason to be in a small group!
Why? Because we all need a place to belong and work through the issues of life. Because we all need to set aside time to get away from the distractions and stresses of life. Because we all need to work at deepening our relationship with God and engaging in relationships that ultimately will help us become more like Christ. Let’s face it, life is hard, but it’s even harder if you try to do it alone.
If you’re doing life alone, we challenge you to join a small group today and see how it can change you! What if weeks in a small group can change the rest of the year for you and your loved ones?
