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 going over the previous weeks sermon. The goal is to take the information that was taught, talk about it and then properly apply it to our life. This is best done within a community of believers who can love, exhort and encourage one another.
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.
