Sharing Facilitation Responsibilities

People find Small Groups through our online group finder.

Leaders of groups accepting new members (open groups) need watch their email and respond to new member (prospect) questions and/or requests by sending them an invitation to join your group.

Leaders need to follow up by phone with anyone who has been sent an invitation, but has not accepted and joined the group. Make sure the invitation is not in their junk email folder. Prospects must accept the invitation to be in your group and show up on your roster.

Outreach

Christmas and Easter are great opportunities for small groups to engage with our neighbors!

Both of these opportunities are wonderful and fun ways for our groups to share Christ’s love with those around us!

During Christmas, we strongly encourage groups to host a neighborhood block party designed to create some Christmas cheer in the neighborhood and provide a casual way to get to know their neighbors. The church has chairs, equipment, and other supplies in order to assist any group in providing a great party!
