At Mountville, small groups gather to explore topics of common interest, to grow in faith, and to develop closer ties of fellowship with other group members. Groups determine a meeting schedule satisfactory to the participants. Participants generally make commitments to attend group sessions and to prepare for each session (for example, by reading the assigned portion of a book).
Groups usually meet for a specific length of time, from several weeks to several months. Formats vary with different topics, but usually include opportunities to comment on the theme of the day and to voice personal concerns or observations. Each individual determines the extent of their participation in the group.
Small group topics may include age group issues—grandmas or parents groups, studies of books of the Bible, or other books of shared interest.
The pastor and church secretary have contact information for groups that are currently meeting.
