3 Studies to Connect the Unconnected After Easter

Easter will be one of the most attended Sundays of the year for just about every church in the country. Small groups represent a great opportunity to connect the people who visit Easter Sunday (and often don’t have a church home) into the life of your church.
If you want to connect the unconnected through a small group, you must select topics that will actually appeal to those kind of people. Here are 3 studies that will help you connect people into groups after Easter and have a broad appeal to those who might be unfamiliar with religious jargon. Use these to form groups that act as an on-ramp into your church for people who visit at Easter and help your church become more sticky.

We live in a radically skeptical age. Tough questions are being asked about Christianity. And most believers are ill-equipped to provide the answers our culture and communities desperately need. Many in today’s church do not know the Bible as well as they should and they struggle with their own “big questions” about the faith. This study provides precisely what the church needs today: tools and answers!
