My wife and I have been attending a small group since 2010. We have about 20 groups in our church that meet on a regular basis. I would be interested in hearing others experience in these kinds of groups. Do you do a lot of study or does it turn more into a social event? Do you tend to do topical studies or specific books of the bible? How do you handle prayer time/prayer requests? Our group is now up to 15 people. We range in age from 40-70. About 1 1/2 hours is discussing the study and the last 1/2 hour is pray time and requests. It's a bit of a challenge staying on topic/on time with so many people but we somehow manage.
