Small Groups at Becker Evangelical Free Church
A small group is a safe place to connect with other people in a more personal setting than the Sunday morning worship service. Most small groups meet twice a month; with some doing a service project together once a month. Each small group decides their own schedule and study. We subscribe to www.rightnowmedia.org as a church so that every person in our church has access to this amazing resource. Most small groups use it for their study materials.
When we meet in small groups, we give our attention to four things: Prayer, Encouragement, God’s Word and Serving. At times we have 5 family small groups, 2 adult only small groups and one women’s small group. Around these groups are also men’s and women’s study groups (6-12 weeks) as well as small groups for students and service teams like the Worship Team and the Pastoral Team.

Next Step partnered with Francis Chan, acclaimed speaker and author of Crazy Love, to produce the Greater Than film series. Francis walks us through his own difficult childhood to help us understand that God is greater than any pain, sin or hardship that we might encounter in this life. Watch the videos and follow along with the study guide, and you too will realize that God is greater than any obstacle standing in your way.
Once upon a time, people knew their neighbors. They talked to them, had cook-outs with them, and went to church with them. In our time of unprecedented mobility and increasing isolationism, it’s hard to make lasting connections with those who live right outside our front door. We have hundreds of “friends” through online social networking, but we often don’t even know the full name of the person who lives right next door.
This unique and inspiring book asks the question: What is the most loving thing I can do for the people who live on my street or in my apartment building? Through compelling true stories of lives impacted, the authors show readers how to create genuine friendships with the people who live in closest proximity to them. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this book perfect for small groups or individual study.
What we think about Jesus matters. Our perception of Him shapes us – what we say, how we treat others, even what we think. If we paint Jesus as any less than who He is as supreme over all creation and savior of the world, not only does our theology slip, but the working out of our faith also suffers.
In this 8-session series, Louie Giglio will take us through the book of Colossians to help us form a complete picture of Jesus. What we believe about Him influences everything from our corporate worship to our relationships to our attitude toward sin. Now alive in Christ, we can live a life worthy of God instead of falling back into the ways of the world.

Otto Frank, the father of Anne Frank, once said to her, “Parents can only give good advice or put [their children] on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.”
Indeed, after all the years of a parent’s hard work of spending money, sacrificing time, worrying, hoping, and praying, there comes a point when our children go off on their own. And that’s when we have to ask ourselves, “Did we point them in the right direction?”
The Psalmist said, “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth” (Psalm 127:4). Eventually, each child will move from your care and launch into the world. And wherever each one is pointed is where the child will land.
Tools like the movie Like Arrows can guide parents on how to find the answers to the problems they encounter with their children. Parents, even Christian parents, aren’t born knowing how to parent in a godly way. Someone has to teach them, and Like Arrows can be that starting point.
