Small Group Experiment

A Heritage Experiment in Disciples Who Make Disciples

Small Group – Get Started

Here’s the big idea: get together with a few (3 or more) and meet weekly or bi-weekly from January to Easter

*Why a group?

To experiment in another way to strengthen your journey with Jesus & build friendships

*What happens in a group?

Simple group rules: everyone participates, keep confidences, prays for each other

          Try the Steve TeVelde talk & discussion

*How do we do it?

Contact each other at least weekly

Get together regularly, weekly or biweekly

*decide at Easter whether to continue or multiply

*eating together is recommended (but not a competition)

*honesty, openness & authenticity makes it happen

*shared leadership is a high value

*serving together is awesome

*talk about integrating kids

*less is more

Introduction to the Experiment:

This outline gives a brief overview of what I am planning for the upcoming video series. In looking at the calendar I decided that eight videos would work best, with the last one coming the Monday after Easter. I am anticipating that each video will be 8-12 minutes long with questions and talking points throughout, as well as an accompanying study guide for each one. It is my hope that each video will broaden people’s understanding of the Bible and spur them on to be disciples who make disciples.
