Small groups at Maranatha Bible Church are the primary way of making the church small. There are several groups that meet at various times throughout the week and locations throughout the greater Grand Rapids area from September to May.
For the current small group season we will be studying various books of the Bible using inductive Bible study methods, including Mark, Revelation, Isaiah, Parables, Sermon on the Mount, Romans, Acts and topical books such as Strengthening Your Marriage. As always the small groups will be dedicated to:
- Fellowship: deep friendship that results as we are devoted to one another in brotherly love.
- Discipleship: Helping one another in becoming more like Christ. This includes Bible study, praying for one another, and providing support and accountability.
- Ownership: Taking personal responsibility for the discipleship and care of the others in your fellowship group.
- Outreach: Supporting and encouraging one another in our outreach to those who have not yet put faith in Jesus Christ and to Christians who do not have the support they need to be growing believers.
