Creating and Managing Small Groups

From the left toolbar go to
Groups > Small Groups

New Small Groups should ideally be created/set-up before entering individual profiles. After your Small Groups have been created you will see these groups listed in each person’s personal profile page where you can choose what group to put them in.

On this page you can Manage and Add Small Groups. Small groups generally do not have a definite beginning or end and are used to sort a group of individuals who have a regular meeting, such as on Sunday mornings, Wednesday nights, Sunday nights, etc. This can be any small group of people, such as a Life class, Small Group or Student weekly classes that is an ongoing group with no start or end date.

* Click “Add New” button on right to add a new small group
* Type the name of your small group you are adding
* Parent organization– you can choose if you would like this small group to be under a specific division to help you with the organization of your small group. To add a new Division or Department for this, go to Groups > Department or Groups > Division.
