Spring 2010 Class Offerings

Small Groups and Direction

This class will meet on Monday afternoons from 1-3pm starting on February 15th and running through March 22nd. Class will be held at Faith Evangelical Free Church in the Blue Room (head left after coming in the front doors; it is the third or fourth room on the left side of the hall).

We will consider how to foster genuine spiritual community in the small groups we lead. Topics covered will include: What is spiritual community? What are practical ways to move a small group towards spiritual community? What kinds of activities promote an environment of safety and curiosity? How to respond to challenging moments in such a way that moves people towards one another and towards God.

Textbooks for the class are Making Small Groups Work by Henry Cloud and John Townsend and The Safest Place on Earth (recently retitled Becoming a True Spiritual Community) by Larry Crabb (either is acceptable).
