Small Groups at North Lake Presbyterian Church are an important part of our Discipleship. Currently, we have over 25 small groups that meet regularly and we are growing. If you would like to facilitate or join a small group, visit the Discipleship desk. There you will find sign-up sheets and a list of small groups who are accepting members.
WHAT IS A SMALL GROUP?
Small Groups at North Lake is an intentional gathering of 8 to 12 people sharing a common relationship with Jesus. They meet regularly in homes, at church or other locations to study the Word through different formats (the Bible, videos, books, sermon discussions, etc.). Topics are selected by the facilitator or in consultation with group members. Small Groups provide a place where spiritual transformation can happen.
Throughout the New Testament, fellowship, sharing and coming together in love, faith and encouragement were accomplished by being involved in small groups. Jesus began His earthly ministry by establishing His Small Group with 12 disciples. His purpose was to transform them into His image and subsequently send them out to share the Gospel with others. In Acts 2, the first century church met in temple courts and in house to house. Other examples exist throughout the Bible.
