Most people who have been a part of a small group in a church say the greatest benefit is the close relationships and friendships that develop. They will check in with each other or share an urgent prayer request or an exciting answer.
When you are a part of a small group you’ll discover that your needs and problems are not unique ~ that we’re all in the same boat. It helps to know that others are facing the same difficulties, or have lived through them and learned spiritual principles in the process.
Dozens of times in the New Testament the phrase "one another" is used to describe our relationship to other believers. We are instructed to love one another, encourage one another, pray for one another, accept one another, bear one another’s burdens, and build up one another.
The only way you can obey these commands is in a small group! We really do need each other. God never meant for you to go it alone in the Christian life. If you are in need of a closer relationship with God and with others (WHO ISN”T?) the answer to your problem is to get in a small group.
