Growth Groups are gospel greenhouses for Christians. Small Groups meet together in order to grow together as followers of Jesus Christ.
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25
Why go to a Small Group on top of Sunday meetings?
Small Groups are gospel greenhouses for Christians. Small Groups meet together in order to grow together as followers of Jesus Christ. These groups are the primary vehicle for pastoral care and personal discipleship at Bethesda Frankel Estate Church. Small Groups foster community on a deeper level than is possible at a Sunday gathering. Members of Small Groups pray together, share life together, and allow the word of God to dwell richly amongst them. It may be a bit of an oversimplification, but on Sundays the gospel is proclaimed publicly through careful exposition of Scripture, while at Small Groups that same gospel message is then applied specifically through prayerful study of Scripture.
Everyone is welcome to join a Small Group. We urge all our members to be actively and committedly involved in a Small Group for their own good and for the good of others. Small Groups meet at various times during the week; many meet in people’s homes scattered across Singapore. Groups usually meet weekly during school terms and have a break over the school holidays.
40:31 Seniors Ministry
The 40:31 Seniors Ministry was started on 18 Jan 2021 with the mission to equip and enable all seniors to remember the Lord and to persevere in their faith, giving glory to God. Their name of this ministry is inspired by Isaiah 40:31
“Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.”
The 40:31 Seniors Ministry meets every Monday at 10am at the Banyan Room at Kampung Siglap Lifeskills & Training Centre, just across the road from BFEC. Their typical meetings include worship, a talk, lunch, and various activities such as line dancing and rummy-o thereafter. They also frequently organise heritage walks, health talks, and other activities.
