10 Myths People Believe about Small Group

My husband and I once joined a small group with four other couples. Those four couples, their mamas and daddies, their mama’s mamas and daddy’s daddies and many generations beyond, slept, ate, and worked in the small, North Carolina farming community. Call them entrenched in the comings and goings of the neighborhood. My husband and I, however, arrived with “newcomer” stamped across our lives. But that didn’t matter to our small group.

We dined, chatted, and dove into God’s Word together. Relationships formed, bonds deepened, and voids filled. Some of those folks even came to the rescue when my pregnant self went into labor during hubby’s deployment halfway around the world. Our small group made a difference.

I’d give my experience “two thumbs up.” However, some folks hesitate when it comes to small groups. Myths abound, but they certainly seem real. Let’s lasso 10 of them, reining them in with potential and possibility.
