When Truth Speaks is a Small Group based curriculum through John Chapter 3-9. In these chapters, we see Jesus having conversations with several different people. At the end of these conversations, the person (or group) must make their mind up about who Jesus is. Some stay, some leave, some are silent, but all respond in some way. Our hope is that at the end of each lesson, our students are also presented with that same scenario, and thus have to make their minds up about who Jesus is saying he is.
It is important for you to understand our small group time will be the main focus of the evenings in the months of October and November. Pastor Josh will be doing a recap of the previous weeks, and a follow-up after small group time, but there will be an hour dedicated to Small Groups. Thus, it is of utmost importance that you (as a leader) are prepared for the evening when you come in, because you and your leading group will be responsible for the bulk of the teaching that evening.
This area is designed to help you as a small group leader be as prepared as possible for the students on a Sunday evening. You'll find resources here for the curriculum. Links of places to do some of your own study (if you so desire). And a video to help you best prepare for the upcoming week.
Suggestions for Preparation:
- Make sure to spend approximately 1-2 hrs in preparation each week. I'd encourage you to do more, but that is up to you. Please try to do at least 1 hour of preparation.
- Don't prep on Sunday afternoon the week of. You will not be ready.
- NOTICE: Some weeks require you to have materials in advance. So if you're reading this on the Sunday afternoon before Small Group time, then you are probably not going to be as prepared as you should.
