Elementary Discipleship Through Small Groups

August 24, 2016
By Lauren Brasel

This year the Elementary Eagles are participating in Small Groups twice a month during the designated Chapel time. From PreK to Fifth grades, the students have been divided into groups of around 12 students. Each teacher hosts the same group each time to foster relationships across grade levels.  Today was our first meeting to get to know one another and it has already proven to be a great exercise in leadership for the fifth grade students. They are each paired with a PreK buddy to help during group time. The teachers have preplanned lessons that involve a hands-on activity or demonstration for the group to participate in that aligns with a lesson from the Bible. The groups will share their prayer requests, pray together, and get to know one another. 

Doing small groups will be a way to build leadership, develop strong bonds with schoolmates, create a better sense of community, and teachers can build rapport with students in other classes. We are so excited for this new opportunity for our Elementary NCS family to grow spiritually!
