Small Group Programs

Small Group Programs:

Called to Life is a 6-week program for small groups in parishes and congregations to explore questions of vocation and calling—how God works in our everyday lives.

Called to Work is a 6-week program for small groups in parishes and congregations to explore questions of vocation and profession—how God calls in our everyday work.

All materials are available for free online for participants and facilitators.

Pastor Jason Van Hunnik of Westwood Lutheran Church (who presented at the June 2019 meeting) developed curricula for small groups on calling available online:

Leif Kehrwald of the C3 Project from Vibrant Faith designed 14 modules to help people discover God’s calling through major life transitions. They are designed in a concise format so they can be used in a variety of settings – individual, home, small groups, or whole church community.

Each module is designed using a three movement process: 1) What’s Changing in My Life, 2) What’s Emerging in My Life?, and 3) How Should I Be Living My Life?
