Prayer Focus: Small Groups
Theme Verse: “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:24-25).
Why do small groups work? This is a question that many people have if they have never been in a small group. Scripture demonstrates for us time and time again about the importance of being in a small group of believers. In the Book of Daniel we see Daniel and his small group stand up against a changing culture, a pagan King, and pressure to denounce the God. Daniel and his group stood firm even when faced with a fiery furnace. When the King wanted them to change their beliefs “ Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king.[a] But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up” (Daniel 3:16-18 NKJV). God went on to save them from the fiery furnace, and used Daniel and his crew to change the world. God often calls us to people instead of places. He knows that the right combination of friends can change everything! Who is in your crew? Who makes you better? The Summit Spring small group semester begins February 4th, don’t do life alone!!! Join us in praying today for all of our small group participants, and leaders as we change this city one small group at a time!
