Over the past few months at Resurrection, there has been an intentional shift in the language used for adult groups who meet on Sunday morning. The shift was from “Sunday School” to “Sunday Morning Small Groups.” In conversations with Correy Trupp, Director of Small Group Ministry, and with others I have learned more about the changes. The change in language represents a culture shift in the life of the groups. Parts of this culture shift include a shift:
- away from individual learning and toward a communal life together.
- away from a static group and toward a spirit of invitation and multiplication.
- away from a sole focus on knowing God and toward a more balanced approach of knowing, loving and serving God.
I think that this is a good change. What do you think?
