My parents go to a church small group. What does that mean?
Here's the answer:
A church small group is a group of people who read and study the Bible together.
It is very important that Christians come together to read and study the Bible together (Colossians 3:16). Church small groups allow us to grow in our relationship with Jesus and with other Christians. Church small groups help us learn more about God and help us think in the way God wants us to think (Romans 12:2). The best way to learn about God is by reading the Bible and by studying with other Christians. Going to a small group help us learn even more about God and the Bible because other Christians may have more knowledge on a particular topic than we do.
God created us to have friendships with other believers and small groups help us develop these relationships. Church small groups give us the opportunity to be supportive and to help our fellow Christian friends. We should all want to help, encourage, and support one another because Jesus tells us to love one another as He loves us (John 15:12).
Church small groups are a lot of fun! With your parents’ permission, you can try to start your own Bible church small group with your friends or you could ask your parents if you could go to a church small group with them.
"Let the message about Christ live among you like a rich treasure. Teach and correct one another wisely. Teach one another by singing psalms and hymns and songs from the Spirit. Sing to God with thanks in your hearts" (Colossians 3:16).
"Don’t live the way this world lives. Let your way of thinking be completely changed. Then you will be able to test what God wants for you. And you will agree that what he wants is right. His plan is good and pleasing and perfect" (Romans 12:2).
"Here is my command. Love one another, just as I have loved you" (John 15:12).
