The earliest Christian communities met in small groups, inside of their homes and were nourished by the Word of God in order to fulfill their mission as disciples of Christ. In that light, the community of Elon CCM attempts to accomplish the same thing within our own small groups. We come together to share our struggles, our joys, and the meaning of the Word of God in order to be better prepared to live out the Mass on Sunday and our faith journey everyday. We will go in depth into Scripture to discover the meaning of the authors and what it means to each today's community.
Small groups or bible studies are a wonderful way for us to reflect on our faith and share it with others. Groups are usually no more than 6-8 students in size, and they regularly meet once a week. We discuss various things, including how to live out our faith on campus, Scriptures for the upcoming Sunday Mass, and books of the Bible. The groups and meeting times have been set, and the schedule is shown below. Each group is led by a student leader, called a Shepherd, who are also listed below. Feel free to contact any of the Shepherds to join their group. You can also contact Kayleigh Johnson for more information.
