All News, Small Group Study

Ministry Spotlight – What is a Small Group?

What is a Small Group (Class Meeting to Share Group) “Life Side by Side?”

Being in a small group is a commitment to a transformed life. Wesley called this life long process sanctification or going to perfection. The Book of Disciplined (the book where you find Methodist theology, doctrine, history and rules) describes our understanding of the process this way:
Sanctification and Perfection-We hold that the owner of God’s acceptance and pardon does not end God’s saving work, which continues to nurture our growth in grace. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are enabled to increase in the knowledge and love of God and in love for our neighbor.

We at Westwood UMC believe that the best small groups for forming disciples are transformation driven. The small group, share group and lifelong Sunday school groups meet the need that every person has for meaningful connection and an appropriate place to be deeply known.

There are many opportunities, groups, days and times to join one of these transformational groups. Contact Gail Steward or Pastor Beth Anne if you are looking to make a growth change in your relationship with God. We do life side by side here at Westwood UMC…come and walk with us and with the Triune God!
