Every leader has been there: your group meeting is coming up soon and you're not sure what you should do with the time. Maybe you've just finished a study. Maybe you have a week to fill before a planned social or a holiday break. Maybe you just need a short, energetic group experience to reset the group's rhythm after completing a longer study.

If you've never been in that situation, you will be eventually. And when you are, we have you covered.

We've created a number of one-session studies and activities. They're short, but they're not throwaways. In fact, they can set the tone for future studies by helping you connect more deeply while learning important stuff about yourselves and one another.

The next time you need something for your group to do at one of your meetings, visit the Studies & Resources page, and scroll down to the section called "One Session Studies & Resources."

Here are a few of options we recommend for every group to try:

  • Temperament Assessment
    This exercise is designed to help you identify the way you're hardwired to respond to people and circumstances. It’s not intended to give you a comprehensive picture of your temperament, but it does provide a great starting point for future discovery. 
  • Core vs. Periphery
    This study is designed to help you clearly identify which beliefs you consider essential to the Christian faith. Understanding the priority you place on specific beliefs can enable you to be kinder and more graceful when talking with people who don't see eye-to-eye with you.
  • Spiritual Gift Assessment
    God made each of us with a unique set of talents, passions, and spiritual gifts. When we use those gifts to benefit others, we reflect his love to the people around us. This resource is designed to help you identify particular spiritual gifts you may have.

So, next time you need a resource to get you through an upcoming group meeting, check out our one-session options.
