People find Small Groups through our online group finder

Leaders of 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.

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!

CHRISTMAS OUTREACH

 

During Christmas we strongly encourage small groups to host a neighborhood block party designed to create some Christmas cheer in your local 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!

Click HERE for more info or to host a 2021 Christmas Block Party.

EASTER OUTREACH – CANCELLED

 

StoneBridge will be hosting a community event called EASTER PALOOZA on April 11th from 1pm – 5pm.

Just like our previous Easter events, we are looking for our small groups to help by working in the various stations. Having small groups out there ensures we do a good job of hosting all the visitors who are checking out our church and checking out Christianity, maybe for the first time.

Click HERE for a description of the stations, what needs to be done and to sign up.

LEADER TOOLBOX

Icebreaker questions are simply great questions you can ask to help people get to know each other better. These questions are fun and non-threatening.

CLICK HERE for a list of questions to choose from.

A Best Practice is defined as a procedure that has
been shown to produce optimal results and that is established or proposed as a standard suitable for widespread adoption.
