FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG WILL THIS SERIES LAST?
Forward is a six-part series based on six weekend messages and six small group sessions. If you want to continue meeting as a small group after we’ve finished Forward, we would love to help you take your next step as a group. For ideas on recommended small group curriculum, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
HOW LONG SHOULD EACH SMALL GROUP MEETING LAST?
Each small group should last 60-90 minutes. You want to make sure to respect the time of those involved in your small group. If you want to spend extra time with people after the group, please feel free to do so, but make sure other group members feel free to leave when they need to.
WHO IS THE HOST?
The host of your small group is the person who has organized your group meeting and will be leading some of the group discussions. It can be very helpful for other group members to also take turns leading the groups discussion, taking prayer requests, and organizing social gatherings outside of the normal group time.
WHERE DO WE FIND NEW GROUP MEMBERS?
Inviting new people to your small group should be a regular part of group-life. There is never a wrong time to invite someone to your small group. We want to be welcoming and open to anyone who wants to attend your small group. All members of the small group should be encouraged to invite people they know who could benefit from being a part of a small group. Don’t worry about your group getting too big. If it gets large, you can simply break into smaller sub-groups during the discussion time. Take time to think of a few people whom you can think about inviting to be a part of small group with you. Your invite could help make an eternal impact in someone’s life
