God knows we need a loving group of people around us. It is through B-Groups that we see the church family functioning in relationships of genuine love and practical care. In B-Groups, we celebrate personal victories, support each other through difficult times, believe in each other’s potential, and show loyalty by keeping confidences.
We care for our B-Group members in practical ways:
Accountability: Ask tough questions; help them keep commitments.
Affirmation: Offer words of encouragement and support; affirm their strengths.
Assessment: Evaluate their condition objectively; help them gain perspective.
Acceptance: Provide unconditional love and grace to them, even when they fail.
Advice: Speak words of wise counsel, and give them options for their decisions.
Admonition: Offer words of caution and warning so they can avoid pitfalls.
Assets: Give them tangible gifts and resources, such as a book, a CD, or a personal contact.
Application: Direct them to discover how they can practice what they have learned.
