COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I dont know much about the Bible. Is that a problem?
Not at all. Small groups are a great place for a person to learn about the bible from peers. There are no Bible scholars in small groups, simply people learning together what the Bible says and how to use it to guide our daily life.
How do small groups fit into the tradition of the United Methodist Church?
Jesus was a small group leader. Many of his teachings occured with the twelve disciple. John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, formed "societies" or small groups of people learn the tenants of Christianity.
What are the myths concerning spiritual growth?
Many people believe that they can mature in isolated study of the Bible. The Bible can mean something different to each person, depending upon their background and current situation. Spiritual growth occurs best through dialogue with others: learning how it speaks to them and clarifying your own understanding God's Word.
Can my family be a small group?
Certainly. It is an excellent way to be a role model to your children. However, it is important to facilitate discussion and discovery and not one understanding.
Is it possible to have a virtual small group since I travel for business?
Rightnowmedia.org means that a small group can meet virtually. Contact the Small Group Ministry Leader if you wish to facilitate such a group.
