Want to be a part of something that will change your life?
What about something that will also allow you to impact others? Join a small group and find out what it means to live life with other people who are invested in you. Make this the year you are intentional in how you give of yourself and your time.
It is an opportunity to spend more time in the Word, deepening your understanding of God and His plan for your life. Digging into the Word will lead to passionate discussions and personal growth.
Knowledge and discipleship are important, but a small group is more than a place to learn. Small groups are about people. People matter. (A pillar at AFBC). A small group creates a place where you belong and can share life with others.
For where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am among them. Matthew 18:20
The foundation and center of any small group is God. What better way to experience God’s blessings than with a group of people you can count on? Small groups provide encouragement through difficulties, celebration in happy times and the power that comes from praying for one another.
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Not only will you find a place to belong, you will have a real connection to people. Small groups grow together. You will be challenged and inspired. You will meet new people and discover that they learn from you. You will begin to see more about God’s call on your life.
This Sunday kicks off the start of the 2016 small groups at Albuquerque’s First Baptist church. Learn more and find the one for you here. We can’t wait to see you on Sunday.
