You’ll be glad to know that your small group comments do NOT appear in your Facebook timeline and only members of the private Facebook group can see what you have shared. We used “closed” privacy settings.

How Do Small Groups Work…What Should You Do After Joining the Private Facebook Group?

  1. Take a look around the Facebook group once a ministry leader approves your request to join.
  2. At the top of the group there is a feature called PINNED POSTS. Look there for the current small group schedule, arranged by day and time.
  3. Select a day and time you’d like to attend a small group Write this in your calendar and set a weekly reminder alarm.
  4. On the day and time you wish to attend, arrive in the Facebook group at the time of the group meeting.
  5. Look for a photo posted with the day and time of your group. Under the photo the leaders and small group members will start discussing the Bible study.
  6. Every group has the exact same questions, so you only need to attend one group each week. Small groups last ONE HOUR.
  7. Groups are NEVER FULL. You are invited to attend any group that fits your schedule.
  8. We don’t divide women by experience, age, marital status or geographic location. All women are treated equally.
  9. Groups are non-denominational.
  10. Due to copyright law instructional videos are NOT shown in the small groups. These are not required for online Bible study.

We have many volunteer ministry leaders leading these small groups. Some of the groups will be larger than other groups and tend to move quickly. If you find the group moves too fast for you, I’d recommend attending a smaller group.
