Galatians and the Washington Monument

It's hard to define our small group "model" at NCC. It's an odd hybrid of free market and traditional cell sprinkled with a little G-12. But in spirit, we are free market. That means we do not have a set curriculum or type of group. We encourage our leaders to get a vision from God and then run with it. Then, we focus our discipleship efforts on our leaders.

Our deadline for summer group registration just passed, and it's always amazing to me to see the group ideas that roll in. I want to highlight a few of my favorites over the next few days to give people an idea of the types of groups that are possible and the amazing creativity that can be unleashed in a free market system.

God at the Memorials
Robin will be leading a study on the book of Galatians at a different Washington memorial every week. It will start out with a discussion of the history behind the book of Galatians and the history of DC. Then, the group will set out to study a different chapter at a different memorial each night. The memorial chosen will be tied into the theme of the chapter. This will not only be a great Bible study, it will also be a great place for our summer interns to plug in as an opportunity to see the city.

What a great group! Maybe I should just commute this summer... It's funny when I talk to people at my church about the groups at NCC. Half the time, I'll describe a group and they say, "How is that a bible study?" And I get to describe the whole idea of doing life together, working in discipleship, etc. It's cool. Our church is very bible study oriented, but we have plenty of room to grow!
