Many churches have also canceled their small group meeting because they say they are not working. They claim that people are not growing in the Word, in character or in close fellowship as intended. I think this is because you can't artificially create the kind of Holy Spirit fellowship in the body of Christ by scheduling small group meetings or making up church programs or following a book on church growth etc. It happens when individuals get on fire with the Holy Spirit and want to get involved in outreach and evangelism. These individuals will meet with like minded individuals and do things to win the lost such as soul winning and outreaches and there they form bonds of brotherhood that spill over to meeting in homes for dinners, birthday parties or "after glow" fellowship to discuss the exciting things that happened on the evangelism outreach. So it comes back to going to the "big church" and getting involved.
