What is a small group?
We gather on Sundays to worship corporately. Many of us gather together in homes regularly. We call these small groups. Small groups provide an opportunity for your spiritual journey to go deeper quicker. You experience care, prayer, community and an opportunity to study the Bible together. Many people feel like they belong to Granite Springs because they also belong to a small group.
How do groups study the Bible?
Many people find meaning in life by attaching it to a larger story line; such as immigrants from Asia or Europe hanging on to pieces of their ethnic culture (language, cooking, customs), people born in Minnesota becoming lifelong Vikings fans even though they’ve lived most of their life in California. A small group invites you to make sense of your own life story through the ancient, life-giving story of the Bible.
The Bible can seem odd at first. It can feel as strange as arriving in Paris without knowing any French and trying to navigate the elaborate public transit system. For other readers, the Bible seems too familiar. They are convinced that they already know its story. Maybe they have already rejected it as too binding and restrictive. Maybe rule-oriented people have presented the Bible to them as a set of commandments to guide their life. Watching such principles lived out only left them feeling cold and angry.
At Granite Springs, we believe the Bible is the greatest story ever told.
We hope the Bible begins to feel like opening a family album with strange uncles, weird cousins, and majestic great aunts who keep the family together in adversity. Maybe you’ll want to make this story your own.
