At Aboite Baptist Church our focus is on the quality of discipleship. We encourage those in our fellowship to “get connected” by plugging into one of our small groups. The purpose of these groups is to minister to and encourage one another in daily devotionals, effective prayer and mutual accountability.
A typical small group meeting consists of fellowship time, sermon follow-up study, mutual accountability time (men with men, women with women) and prayer. The curriculum is common to all groups. Meetings are approximately an hour and a half in length and are usually held from 6:00 to 7:30 pm on Sunday nights.
These groups meet the first and third Sunday each month, (September through May), in most couples’ homes.
All of our small groups are cross-generational, a balance of male and female, married and singles. We believe this most likely resembles the early church in Acts. Our topics of study are taken from the Sunday morning message to help apply that teaching. The particular struggles indicative of our age groups are opportunities for the body of Christ to come around us to support us and encourage us in our pursuit of Christ-likeness. You can expect to find people within your group to whom you can relate and fellowship with in addition to the weekly meetings.
Church membership is not required to be a part of a small group.
