why small groups?

"As our Church grows larger, we have to think smaller." 

Small Groups are the answer to growing Sunday morning numbers. In the context of a small group you'll get to know people well enough to "be the Church" with them. We are designed for dependence upon authentic, biblical relationships. A Christ-centered environment of growth and accountability is key to a thriving Christian life. 

Small groups are made up of fellow sinners as much in need of Christ's redeeming power as you. They too are designed to need Christian community; you need them, and they need you. 

what does a small group look like?

SIZE: It's up to you, but we'd recommend a group of 3-12 dedicated people.  

CONTENT: With each session groups should be getting into their Bibles, praying together, and intentional about developing Godly relationships with one another.

MATERIAL: Some groups choose to work their way through a book of the Bible together, others prefer a DVD driven study or book study. Making sure the content aligns with scripture is key. The Naz pays for everyone to have access to RightNow Media, the "Christian Netflix." If you have wifi access this is a great resource for study material. Many of the studies include free downloadable discussion guides. If you haven't logged-in yet email to get started.

Other resources to consider: 

The Read Scripture App : a free Bible reading app to help get you in the Word and keep you in the Word. 

She Reads Truth : bible reading program

Multiply : disciple making and encouraging material

ACCOUNTABILITY: Accountability is crucial to maintaining healthy, growing groups. The Naz provides accountability to all of its group leaders. You can view our accountability questions HERE. If your group is struggling bring the accountability questions to your group. If there continues to be a struggle please contact Naz leadership right away.
