Faith Sharing Groups
What's the BIG DEAL about Small Groups? WHY should I join one?
Let's be honest. We all know there is a gap between the person I want to be and the person I am today. Maybe I'd like to lose a few pounds, get a new job , or fix a broken relationship. We all have that in common - the desire to be better. We want to grow. Small groups are a great place to do that, in fact, Jesus Himself started his own small group over 2,000 years ago to teach 12 regular guys the Good News of the Gospel. If it worked then, well...
Here's a few good reasons YOU should join a Small Group:
1. Jesus' teachings are about relationship. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind, and all your strength - that's a relationship with God. The second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself. Relationship! It can't be learned alone. A small group offers insight different than your own, fresh perspective, and encouragement.
2. Sharing your faith leads to relationship. We begin to trust as we share. We build community. We begin to see how our lived experiences can connect with our faith, and suddenly - God is alive in our life!
3. Small groups help you take your faith beyond Sunday Mass. The Jesus in your head moves into your heart. He becomes a part of your daily life. Your faith is alive, and you want to share it with others! That's what it's all about after all.
