SLC Small Group Model

SLCs use the following model to help guide small group meetings. This model helps to guide discussion, while following a structure so students can get comfortable discussing topics and creating safe, prayerful spaces.

1. Open: Prayer/Reflection/Meditation

2. Reading: From any individual in the group, a reading of some kind to center discussion. This can be a poem, an article, a reading from holy or scripture works. Anyone in the group can prepare readings.

3. Discussion: Group Leaders will help to facilitate discussion surrounding the topic from the reading or resource, and bring in a "BIG" question.

4. Closing Prayer: A volunteer (student or Group Leader) will facilitate this.
