Small-Group Ground Rules example:
THIS IS A SAFE GROUP
We will do our part to create an environment where everyone can be real, open & honest with their struggles and victories.
CONFIDENTIALITY IS KEY
What is said in the group stays in the group?
Crosstalk is a conversation that leaves others out.
NO ADVICE GIVING
We are not here to fix each other; Jesus does that part through the Spirit.
WE WANT EVERYONE TO HAVE A CHANCE TO SHARE
Be sensitive about the amount of time you share.
WE COMMIT TO RESOLVE CONFLICT BIBLICALLY
To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead.
