The Christian life is never a solo journey. Christians need consistent encouragement from each other in order to persevere in faith and live lives characterized by love and obedience to Christ.
To this end the author of Hebrews exhorts us with great urgency, "Take care brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God, but encourage one another day after day" (3:12-13). Later in the letter he continues, "Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together" (10:24-25a).
At Clifton Baptist, we believe Small Groups are an excellent way to facilitate the mutual encouragement, care, and service that the Bible calls the local church body to practice toward one another. Therefore, Small Groups at Clifton are groups of about 8-12 believers committing to meet regularly for fellowship, study, accountability, prayer, and service.
When and Where?
Small groups at Clifton are free to meet anytime during the week. However, the majority of our groups meet on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sunday evenings of the month. Our small groups meet in the homes of our members around Louisville.
Who Can Join?
Small groups at Clifton are intended primarily to help our members provide biblical care and encouragement for one another. At Clifton, we understand participation in a small group as one aspect of our commitment to this local congregation. Therefore, although you do not have to have completed the membership process before joining a group, group participation is reserved for members or those moving toward membership.
How Do I Get into a Small Group?
The primary opportunities for joining a small group are through our sign-ups at the beginning of September and January. However, the form below may be filled out at any time and depending on availability placements may also be made throughout the year.
