BICF-ZGC Small Groups Leader's Guide

Gathering, Growing, Going

The motto of BICF ZGC is `Gathering, Growing, Going`.

People from many nations gather together to worship and serve the Lord Jesus Christ in ZGC. Each Sunday is a preview of the day we from `every tongue, tribe, people, and nation` will gather before Him. The Lord Himself is the Chief Gatherer. And He enlist us to bring people to enter the joy of His family. Small Groups are one of the best places to bring new friends.

We gather to grow. As we gather to sing His praise, hear His Word, and share with His people His Spirit grows us to be more like Jesus. New Testament Christians had both large gatherings: "Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts" (Acts 2:46), and house meetings: "They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts" (Acts 2:46). With only small meetings we miss the connectedness to the whole family of faith. With only large meetings we miss the intimacy of personal involvement and accountability. The first church had a healthy balance of both large and small meetings.
