At the end of our large group worship time we break into small groups for discussions. This is a model that I have seen elsewhere at it is something that we have been doing for around 7 years now. Ever so often I have to kick start the whole process again by rearranging the groups. I hate it. I have to sit and make decisions based on “who is fighting with whom” and “who is dating whom” and then balance those with decisions of what would make for the best group dynamic. Then you have to try to put enough regular attenders in each group so that the group has cohesion. Then do you put people together in their own little cliques or do you try to break those down by splitting people up? There are a ton of questions and decisions.
So what about you? Do you break up into smaller groups? If so how do you do it? I am looking for a better way than my “I think this looks right” method.
