Lent is when we prepare for Easter. This year at MZ, we’ll use the season of Lent to step back, slow down, reflect, and examine and renew our relationship with God. The small group format can help us help each other to deepen our faith. In small groups of 3-5, we can support and encourage each other as we engage in regular spiritual disciplines such as prayer, study, fasting, silence, meditation, and service.
The basics of MZ’s 2014 Spiritual Discipline Small Groups:
- Aim for a group of 3-5.
- Meet at least once a week.
- Each member of the group will determine his or her own area of focus, will fill out a covenant, and share it with the group.
- The purpose of the weekly meeting is to check in with each other and to keep each other on track and engaged. The idea is to be accountable to each other, and thereby help each other in keeping our covenants.
There are many spiritual disciplines, and you are of course welcome to choose others that are not on this... More
