Groups

Why Join a Small Group?

Small groups are a vital part of a believer’s life. They exist to promote spiritual growth and maturity through the development of significant Christian relationships centered around the study of God’s Word.  (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Small Groups are also a place for you to be cared for, connected to and supported in times of crisis.  Take this step and experience the love of Christ through this body of believers.  You’ll be glad you did!

CONNECT.
With God. With Each Other

We are wrapping up a year of small groups working through Navigators 2:7 Discipleship Training material. Almost all groups will finish with Book 3 by June 1. Fall of 2016 will begin a whole new line up of groups for you to choose from. Our primary focus will be on getting everyone that can into a 2:7 Discipleship Group. We plan to go through Book One — Growing Strong in God’s Family, starting in late September. 

How Do I Sign Up?

Details will be available later this summer.  Or you may e-mail us at lookstluke@cebridge.net.

WHY DO SMALL GROUPS?

“When people are in small groups where someone knows them – where they can ask the threatening, embarrassing, naive questions and share where they are – then they can take giant steps in their faith.  That doesn’t just happen in a church service….”

Howard Hendricks, Professor & Author

Growing Strong in God’s Family – Small Groups Start in September!

When will the 2:7 Growing Strong small groups start?

  • The 11-session study in the first book will starting late September and end mid-December.

How do I get into a 2:7 Growing Strong small group?

  • There are several ways. First, contact one of the 2:7 disciple makers listed above and see when their group will be meeting and let them know you’d like to join. Second, you can put a group together and invite one of the disciple makers to lead your group. Third, we will be having sign ups at church throughout the month of September leading up to the first week.

How long is each study each night?

  • In the first book, the studies will average about one hour to an hour and fifteen minutes.

How much homework is there per week?

  • For the first book, the personal study is about one hour per week. Of course, 2:7 group members often got into what they were learning and are able to spend more time if desired.

What if I can’t get into Book One this fall?

  • We will try to open up new Book One groups in January of 2016.

What if I want more after the first book?

  • There are two more 11-session books – Deepening Your Roots and Bearing Fruit. If one was to continue through all three, one would complete the disciple maker training by the end of May 2016.
