Thought this FAQ from hsmlifegroups.com could give you some insight into how we run small groups here in HSM and/or give you something to copy/paste for your own youth ministry website, too!
When and where do they meet?
Life Groups meet in host homes on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00pm. Meeting in homes creates a warm, friendly atmosphere for sharing life together.
What does a typical night look like?
Each Life Group will look different, but a typical night will look something like this: welcome / snacks / hang out / Bible study / discussion / prayer.
Being involved in a Life Group will be an awesome time to grow closer to God; what better way to do that than by reading and studying the Bible? Every Life Group will follow the curriculum path designed just for their grade level by the HSM team!
What about my leader?
HSM has incredible, screened, and trained adult volunteers who are ready to serve and teach high school students. Our HSM leaders are there to encourage, teach, guide, and help strengthen your walk with Christ. It may turn out to be the most significant relationship of your high school years.
What is the Life Group Commitment?
Being part of a Life Group is a privilege. We expect each Life Group member to commit to the following:
- Come to group prepared, equipped with a Bible, a pen, a notebook and a good attitude.
- Respect your Life Group leader. They are giving you their time because they WANT to minister to you.
- Respect and be kind to others in your group.
- Respect your Host Home. Help clean-up your host home at the end of every night.
- If you cannot commit to these things we will ask you to no longer be a part of the Life Group
