1 | WATCH
God created us to crave a relationship with Himself and with others in community. He just wired us that way! When we gather together, we discover strength to weather storms, wisdom to aid our tough life decisions, assurance that God is with us, and encouragement with accountability to stay the course. Begin this journey by watching the video below.
2 | JOIN
Small Groups encourage us to grow spiritually while in a relationship with others. They are a place to learn and apply God's Word, to be cared for and to care for others, and to reflect the love, acceptance, and forgiveness of Christ. When we do life together in the trenches, receiving the love, support, and encouragement of other Christians, we are changed from the inside out. Step 2 in this connect journey is to sign up for a small group and make it a priority to attend your group every week this semester.
3 | EXPAND
Now that you are in a group its time to expand your understanding of how groups influence discipleship.
Watch the video "Community-Starting Well Part 3" by Andy Stanley. The video is only 10 minutes and is part of six-part series. You will also have access to watch the other five parts. You have access to this video through an online resource called RightNow Media. This is a FREE resource for members of Frontline small groups.

4 | JOIN IN
Discipleship in groups doesn't happen unless you join in the process.
One way to do this is to actively pursue deeper relationships with your group members outside of meeting times. Step 4 in this connecting discipleship journey is to make plans, follow through, and share here your experience in growing relationships with your group.
Examples: Connect at Frontline with group members and sit together in service, Go out to breakfast or lunch with group members on a Sunday after service, invite someone from the group over for dinner, go out on a date night with another couple in your group, volunteer to serve with other group members at Frontline or in the community.
5 | REFLECT
At the conclusion of this journey, it is time to look back at where you've been and reflect on how God has changed you through it. The fifth and final step in this journey is to prayerfully reflect on how you have grown and been transformed in these past couple months, while also considering what your next season of discipleship holds.
