2 Small Groups Sundays at 5:00PM-6:15PM, September 13, 2009 – August 22, 2010

3 Our Purpose and Goals

4 Purpose of our Church The purpose of Community Baptist Church is to bring glory to God – How? 1. by worshipping the Lord in righteousness and holiness, 2. by evangelizing the lost at home and abroad, 3. by edifying and equipping the saints through Bible-centered preaching and teaching, and 4. by dwelling together in warm, Christian fellowship

5 Purpose of Small Groups  Essentially the same as the church, but specifically focusing on the 3 rd and 4 th clauses:  A place to edify and equip the saints through Bible-centered preaching and teaching (Ephesians 4:11 – 16)  A vehicle for warm, Christian fellowship

6 (11) And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, (12) to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, (13) until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ

7 (14) so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. (15) Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, (16) from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

39 Children’s Small Groups Community Baptist Church

40  Essentially the same as our church, but specifically focusing on the third clause by edifying and equipping the saints through Bible-centered preaching and teaching,  The primary aim of our children’s ministry is Bible-centered, preaching and teaching  The primary aim is NOT to have a great craft time, amazing games, or awards despite that being a primary emphasis in many good, evangelical curriculums Purpose of our Children’s Ministries

41  We feel that this aim is best accomplished through a strong emphasis on two critical components:  Biblical Theology  Doctrine Purpose of our Children’s Ministries

42 Biblical Theology Doctrine Critical Components

43  God-centered Bible Content  The “big” picture broken down book-by-book  Do we really need the big picture? Some parts are so boring!  Romans 15:4 (cf. 1 Cor 10:6) Biblical Theology (4) For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. (emphasis added)

44  What we believe  Ephesians 4:4-6  Paul is crystal clear: there is only ONE God and ONE faith to get to Him  We want our children to know enough about the Bible to understand that Doctrine (4) There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— (5) one Lord, one faith, one baptism, (6) one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (Emphasis added)

45  Three secondary components that complement Biblical theology and doctrine: 1. Devotional Material 2. Scripture Memorization 3. Life Application Stories Additional Components
