SMALL GROUP RESOURCES

small groups at Downey Adventist Church Small Groups are an important part of having a healthy group of believers (ref. the book of Acts in the New Testament). Small groups is one of our core beliefs at Downey Adventist Church. Some of our groups meet consistently year round, other groups have a more relaxed schedule. However, we encourage all the members to get into small groups for a 6 weeks of emphasis each spring and fall. The 6 weeks of emphasis have covered topics such as prayer, prophecy, opportunity and more. During the 6 week series, we usually read a book and study that, along with our Bibles. We have developed the curriculum for most of these series ourselves. We believe in "Open Source," freely we have been given, so freely we give.  All the work we have done is freely available for you to use. No charge. Free! If you find any of these resources helpful, we'd appreciate a note or email, just to let us know. Enjoy!
