Did You Know
Here are some significant statistics provided by Lifeway Research that help emphasize the importance of our ministry.
66% of regular group attendees read their Bible regularly versus 33% among non-group members.
- 74% of regular group attendees think about biblical truths throughout the day versus 45% non-group attendees
- 64% of regular group attendees pray for their church and/or church leaders regularly. Only 30% of non-group attendees do
- 79% of group attendees confess sins to God and ask forgiveness versus 54% of non-group attendees
- 73% of regular group attendees serve others versus 42% of non-group attendees
I share this all with you as an encouragement. As the research shows, the more that people are actively involved in a group the greater their spiritual growth will be. It helps to identify for us that group involvement and discipleship directly correlate. As well, what a blessing it is to be on the front lines of helping people live for Jesus.
You may not always see that benefits firsthand, but know that what you do matters. Thank you for serving, giving and loving Jesus' people well.
