Sermon Based Small Groups

What are Sermon Based Small Groups?

Joining a Sermon-Based Small Group at church is a great way to grow spiritually and become more connected to the church community here at Calvary Chapel Lexington. These groups help you understand the sermon at a deeper level by allowing you to talk about it in greater detail and figure out how to use its lessons in your life. When you discuss the sermon with others, you can relate it to each of your own experiences, which helps you grow as a person and stick to the teachings in your daily life. Plus, being part of a group like this creates a space where you can know and be known, which then helps you make friends with others who are on a spiritual journey like your own. It becomes a supportive family where you can learn and grow together. These groups make going to church even more meaningful by helping you connect deeply, grow spiritually, and actually live out the lessons from the Sunday sermons in your everyday life.
