Singing Scripture in a Small Group
Worship can be a really meaningful part of a small group, and how better to worship together than singing God’s Word and promises back to him? This can also be a good way to help your group memorize Scripture and develop a sense of community. For groups that perhaps tend to operate more on a cognitive level, singing the Word balances the small group experience with a more emotive element. Something that might be fun if you have a musical/creative group is to work together to create tunes for Scripture passages. If music is not a natural strong point for your group, you can go to the Singing Scripture resource page to find resources in which artists have already put the words of Scripture to music.
