Here's an email from someone who visited one our small groups for the first time.
First of all, thank you so much for allowing me to come--thinking that it was only a young couples group, which I can see is not the focus--it really is the only one that I can attend due to my crazy "i need to learn to say no" schedule.
Second, I really really enjoyed it. I haven't been to a Bible Study in a long time where I was forced to think about what I was going to say. I actually had to stretch my mind. I love that feeling. It was very refreshing not having to answer the same "churchy" questions in the same "churchy" way. I really enjoyed the challenge of exploring ideas that are both Biblical and different from my own understanding.
Third, I really liked splitting up into groups at the end for prayer--the "guys with guys" and "girls with girls" thing. I think that that is very important and beneficial.
