WHAT ARE SMALL GROUPS?
Small Groups are groups of 6-10 adults who meet weekly on the PHD campus to encourage one another, discuss the sermons and pray for each other. We want your group to be a place where the friendships you develop over time will help you to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ. We are small groups building BIG People.

 

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF SMALL GROUPS?
The singular purpose of Small Groups at The Potter’s House of Denver is to follow Jesus together. At its core, to be a Christian is to follow Jesus. We believe that Jesus changes everything and that as we follow Him our lives will be transformed. But Jesus did not come to simply transform us as individuals. Following Jesus draws us into community with others who are being transformed.

You cannot follow Jesus alone. You need other Christians because God designed community to be the environment where Christians endure, grow and thrive by encouraging one another to trust and obey Him. Our hope is that as we follow Jesus together, we will help one another grow to maturity in Christ so that we fully live out our purpose in His Kingdom.

 

WHY SHOULD I JOIN A SMALL GROUP?
Trying to follow Jesus alone is impossible. We believe that much of your long-term discipleship and care should take place in the context of a community that knows you and cares about you personally. Following Jesus is a relational pursuit from beginning to end. We all need Jesus-centered, grace-driven, redemptive community to help us follow him.

 

WHAT DO SMALL GROUPS DO?
Because our Small Groups exist to help us follow Jesus together, we focus our time on three areas: sharing, studying and supporting.

 

  • Sharing: Each week we want to see group members sharing what is happening in their lives—joys, sorrows, sins, struggles, places where we feel like God met us or spoke to us, or places where God feels distant. Some of this will happen during the study, but most of it will happen in informal conversations before the meetings start. We also try to facilitate space for sharing during the check-in time set aside when we meet.
  • Studying: Our meetings will include the study of God’s Word in coordination with a previous sermon. The goal of this time is to hear from God as review Scripture from the sermon, share our observations, and help one another to apply the text to our lives. Our hope is that through our study the Holy Spirit will implant the truth of God’s Word in our hearts and it will take root in our day-to-day experiences and relationships.
  • Supporting: Each week we will learn how to take care of one another as Christ commanded. This care will take many forms, such as praying, listening, meeting needs, encouraging and even challenging one another as needed.

 

 

 

WHEN AND WHERE DO THEY MEET?
Most of our Small Groups meet on weeknights for 60 minutes, starting between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. We do have a handful of groups that meet at other times. Please see registration for details.
