Study Pathways

There are thousands of small group resources available today, but there are a few questions we need to consider before picking our next study.


  • What do our group members need to study in this season?

  • Does our group tend to over-emphasize one topic while neglecting another?

  • If a member of my group faithfully participates for the next 3 years (approximately 12 studies), what will this person learn?  What will be lacking?

  • Do we only see Scripture with a microscope rather than occasionally with a telescope?


In an effort to help us wisely navigate thousands of possible studies, our small group staff has developed a recommended CURRICULUM PATHWAY to consider as you consider what to study next. This is simply a guideline for growing your group while addressing some important questions like the ones listed above. Please familiarize yourself with this pathway and contact us with any questions and recommendations as you grow with your group.



The first study for most groups will be an “All – Church Study”.  Past studies have included WALKOPEN, and RIDICULOUS.
