5 Small Group Myths Busted

. at . Leave a comment

Myths abound about all kinds of things. Weird Facts has the 10 most popular science myths. There are even myths about small groups. Continue reading for 5 of them and see them “BUSTED.”

Myth 1: Small groups last too long.

Myth 2: Small groups are in the evening and I don’t like to go out at night.

Myth 3: I’m not smart enough to be part of a small group.

Myth 4: Small groups are only for those who want a study group.

Myth 5: I’m very shy (weird, talkative, beautiful, etc.) and no -one will like me.

Myth 1: Small groups last too long.

Most CNC small groups have a start and end date. They last from 5-12 weeks. Even if you do belong to an on-going group (like the Family Friendly Group or Ray’s Romans class) you have the option of attending as it fits your schedule and preference.

Myth 2: Small groups are in the evening and I don’t like to go out at night.

Yes, we do have some groups that are held in the evening (like The Joyous Crafters, The Revolt College Group and the Pastor’s Class). But there are also 5 groups that will be held on Sunday mornings. Check out the Small Group brochure for information on these groups.

Myth 3: I’m not smart enough to be part of a small group.

Not true. No one is given a Biblical literacy entrance exam. The requirement for a group that is doing a study is that you are interested in the study and that you spend some time each week doing the homework. How much time you study is up to you.

Myth 4: Small groups are only for those who want to study.

Again, not true. Not all the small groups are a learning-type group. I.e. The Prayer for Healing group is just that. It’s a group of folks who pray for those needing healing. The P.E.P. Breakfast Club is a time for those 55+ to get together at the Waffle Shop to talk, eat and have fun.

Myth 5: I’m very shy (weird, talkative, plain, etc.)and no -one will like me.

It is hard to go to a group, or anywhere, when you are not comfortable with yourself. But let me assure you of something. CNC folks are among the friendliest and most accepting of all folks I’ve met in 6 states and 10 countries! Give us a chance to prove that myth wrong.

Small Groups start the week of October 10, 2010. Brochures are in Rudat Hall on Sundays or in the office during the week.
