For Small Groups

Why not raise the stock value of you and your family by participating in a small group study? The fastest way to learn something is to teach it. When you lead a small group study you will not only understand the message better but solidify it to your heart. Family Matters offers small group studies in the forms of books and/or videos.

Hosting a small group study with any of the materials listed below is easy. All you have to do is keep some commitments. Here are some Small Group Commitments that insure success:

  • Courtesy – Each participant should commit to arriving to each session on time, prepared to participate.
  • Acceptance – Each participant should affirm the other participants’ verbal contributions.
  • Confidentiality – Each participant should be careful to not talk about personal issues shared by fellow participants outside the context of this study.
  • Honesty – Each participant should be forthright and truthful when they speak.
  • Respect – Each participant should be careful not to stand in judgment, give quick advice, or criticize his or her fellow participants. The goal is to make the group a safe place for participants to talk openly about their roles and about their children.
