Smallgroups are a part of every congregation from committees to choirs. Yet they are often overlooked as a place togrow in community, in support and in Scriptural awareness. This workshop will offer ways to start, add,and reorient small groups in any size congregation. The result can be a “Growing Place”spiritually, pastorally and numerically.
