What are Small Groups?
Small Groups move people toward a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, helps individuals draw closer, and build supportive connections with others. Small groups are mini-communities within the church family where disciples are made, prayers shared and support given. Groups averaging 6 to 12 people meet every week or every other week for Bible study, fellowship and prayer.

DISCIPLE Bible Studies
After all, the Bible is all these different kinds of books… about all these different people… written by all those different authors… at different times… and under all kinds of different circumstances. Finding even the corner pieces to this puzzle can be confusing.
So try a DISCIPLE Bible Study. DISCIPLE was developed by the United Methodist Church to provide transformation, not just information. For over 25 years it has provided spiritual renewal for thousands of Christians and churches. It has been used in small groups at Asbury since our founding in 1986.
DISCIPLE I is a structured, disciplined, in-depth study that covers some 90% of the Bible in 1½ hour weekly sessions that uses readings, DVD presentation, small group discussions and reflections. By focusing on the central themes of the Bible, DISCIPLE I emphasizes wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. It draws on the work of pastors, seminary professors, and scholars to aid in Biblical understanding. Its purpose is to help us become better learners, believers, followers and servants.
After completing DISCIPLE I, you can take several other specific studies such as Genesis/Exodus, Luke/Acts, The Prophets, Paul, The Writings, John/Revelation, and Jesus in the Gospels.
If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples. You will know the truth and the truth will set you free. - John 8:31-32
