SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDIES
We believe that there is great value - for Christians and skeptics alike - in studying and discussing the Word of God together in small groups. RUF at NC State is offering several opportunities this semester to study the Scriptures in such a setting, and we would like to invite you to consider joining us for one of these. If you have any questions about these small groups, feel free to contact us.

Christianity was never intended to be lived in isolation. Do I really deeply grasp God’s love for me until I see that love demonstrated by one of his people? Do I really know myself to be forgiven if I don’t experience that forgiveness from another person?

A fellowship group is any 6-8 people who are interested in getting together on a regular basis for the express purpose of encouraging one another.
What does a fellowship group do?
