Life-change happens in small groups. That’s been a value held at Curwensville Alliance for over a decade — and these days, it’s becoming part of our DNA.
Small Groups happen in a variety of places — in people’s homes, in restaurants, and right here at the church location on Susquehanna Avenue.
What to Expect
If you choose to participate in a small group, you can expect to hear others discuss life-issues from a biblical perspective. The leader of a small group doesn’t lecture, but encourages conversation around a given subject.
Topics include things like parenting, marriage, finances, personal matters, biblical spirituality, prayer, grace, managing emotions, encouraging others, life-purpose, and biblical content.
Kinds of Groups
Some small groups are ones you can come and go from week to week — like the Wednesday Prayer Group. Others require that you get a book and come prepared to engage the material that will be presented. Each small group commits to do several things:
- Meet together weekly.
- Maintain an atmosphere of commitment and confidentiality within the group.
- Spend time, as a group, in prayer.
- Focus primarily on study material that is explicitly Christian and biblical.
- Reflect the mission of Curwensville Alliance: To Know God and Make Him Known.
Leaders of Small Groups are approved by the DiscipleMaking Ministries Committee.
