Questions and Answers about NBF's BBT

Q: Who do I contact if I have questions?
A:  Call the church or e-mail lhines@nbf-paoc.ca.

Q: If I join a group, how long is my commitment?
A: This session is 6 weeks long.

Q: How long is each meeting?
A: Groups meet for about 90 minutes. 

Q: I find it difficult to climb stairs. Is there a group that can accommodate me?
A: Yes! Please indicate your concern on a connection card and we will let you know which group will work for you! :)

Q: If I agree to host a group, does that mean I have to lead it?
A: No! Thank you for opening your home and attending a group!

Q: Why aren't we just having normal Bible studies at the church?
A: Small groups allow for more people to connect to a group and feel involved. Different groups meet on different days at different times allowing for more people to find something that fits into their schedule. Small groups also have a fellowship element (in addition to discipleship); you will be connecting with people in a social way, too!

Q: Isn't this too much work for the Pastor - all of these meetings at all of these different times? Won't he burn out?
A: If he had to do all of these groups himself, yes he probably would. :)  But each small group has its own leader!  

Q: I don't want to hire a babysitter every week.  Can I bring my children?
A: Yes! Some homes/groups can accommodate children. Please make that comment on your Connection Card and place it in the offering basket on Sunday morning. We will let you know which group(s) will work for you. 

Q: Do we have to eat bread every time?
A: No. The idea of "Breaking Bread Together" comes from Acts 2:42-47 where the disciples "devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer...They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts..."
