Small Groups for Adults
Judson has 3 categories of small group discipleship available for adults:
Sunday School Groups, Community Groups, & Short-term Groups. If you have questions or desire to teach or help serve in Adult discipleship, then call the church office (225-665-5481) or speak to the pastor, Sunday School Director, or Discipleship Training Director next Sunday!
SUNDAY SCHOOL GROUPS
Sunday school is the ideal type of small group discipleship for most families because it meets right before worship and there are classes provided for all ages including a nursery for babies.
Sunday School groups meet on Sunday mornings at the church facilities from 9:15 AM to 10:15 AM and study through books of the Bible using the Explore The Bible Discipleship Guide. In addition, the passages studied in small group match the passages being preached on in the worship service and are the theme of the daily devotions for the following week.
Adults in a Sunday School small group get to know one another through doing life together in class, in home fellowships and outings, and performing local mission projects. Sunday School classes typically have from a handful to as many as 15 people and are encouraged to raise up leaders from within the class to start new classes (there is a great emphasis on multiplication).
Are you interested in being in a Sunday School group? Are you interested in teaching a new Sunday School Group? Contact the office (225-665-5481) or speak to the pastor or Sunday School director.

COMMUNITY GROUPS (house church)
A community group is the ideal type of small group for someone already in Sunday School who wants to dig deeper in a small group or for someone who is not able to attend Sunday School but still desires to be in a year round weekly small group. A community group is typically limited in size to ten or so adults meeting during the week to pursue spiritual growth and healthy relationships. The group is formed with an upfront commitment to meet for 18 to 24 months before disbanding to form new groups (there is a great emphasis on multiplication).
A community group will choose from approved curriculums for the Bible Study time and will work their way through specialized topics such as theology, relationships, spiritual growth, and marriage.
Are you interested in being in a community group? Are you interested in facilitating a new Community Group? Contact the office (225-665-5481) or speak to the pastor or discipleship director.

SHORT TERM BIBLE STUDY GROUPS
Short-term Bible study groups are the ideal type of small group discipleship for the person who wants to explore a particular topic for a limited time of commitment. A Bible study group may be only a few people working through a study together or may be a group of twenty or more meeting under the teaching of a skilled Bible teacher. A Bible Study group may meet at any time and/or anywhere. For adults attending Wednesday night Bible Study, Youth worship and AWANA are provided for families with babies - teenagers.
