13- How important is corporate worship? Other participation in church life?
I believe that corporate worship is essential. I'm at Monroe because of the worship - I came to the conclusion that I can get good teaching on-line. In the local congregation, I'd rather have good worship than good teaching.
14- How important is it to be part of a small accountability/support group?
It may be different for men's groups than for women's groups. Women's accountability groups don't work.
I have been in an accountability group that was created for diet (think Weigh Down, only that that). We talked about sinful eating habits, why we ate the way we did and other habits that were not fruits of the Spirit.
Important? It may very well depend on the stage of life you're in and what your specific issues are.
