How This Small Group Study Works
Download the Small Group Study Guide by filling out the form at the right. If you decide this Small Group program is for you, then you will need a copy of the “Get a GRASP…” workbook which is required for each small group member and is available from amazon.com.
The complimentary study guide and the purchased workbook go together to make for a very productive 4-week bible study. Each week, prior to attending the small group, each member will individually use their workbook for assigned reading and chapter questions that will get them on their journey to build their spending plan.
Then, in the small group study meeting, the study guide is used to facilitate discussion amongst the small group members and reinforces what was learned from the workbook. By the end of the 4 weeks, your small group attendees should have created their own personalized budget and spending plan.
There are three main themes to the program:
- Motivation to understanding the importance of a spending plan
- Knowledge required to building a sustainable spending plan
- Discipline is a key to maintaining your spending plan
Why Small Group Study?
Christianity is not intended to be a “just me and God” lifestyle. This scripture shows that we also need each other for many reasons.
The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body — whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free — and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? (1 Corinthians 12:12-17)
