COMMON THREADS – WEEK 5
Below is week 5 of the Common Threads Group curriculum. Thank you so much for joining us in this series.
As with the last few weeks, copies will be available at the Welcome Center, or you can feel free to print them on your own or email them to your group in advance.
Before we get into next studies, I wanted to share one practice that my group has adopted. Basically, the week after we finish a study, we just take a week to meet, hang out, eat some food, and possibly play a game or two. While it doesn’t break our rhythm of meeting, I think it creates a necessary break and creates space for us to connect in a different way. On those weeks we ask each person in the group to bring a snack to share. I came across this website called Perfect Potluck, which has helped us make sure we don’t end up with a table full of cookies. 🙂 If you are interested in using that, here is the site: http://www.perfectpotluck.com
Also, for those of you who may be trying to arrange meals for a family in your group who might need them, this is a great site to help organize that: http://www.takethemameal.com
For those of you who are just finishing up the Common Threads study or just starting to think about your next small group study, I wanted to send a few ideas your way.
CRAZY LOVE – FRANCIS CHAN
I know I recommended this one before, but this is a great one if your group has not gone through it.
PHILIPPIANS – MATT CHANDLER
This one is a great study through the book of Philippians
NOT A FAN – KYLE IDLEMAN
This one is about not just being a fan of Jesus, but making a full heartedly commitment to him and following him.
If you are interested in any of these studies or others, please let me know and I will be happy to get you the leader resources.
Just a reminder that Equip classes begin Feb. 10 (this coming Wednesday). This weekend we will be highlighting Love and Respect, but there are a variety of classes available. For more information, please check out the website here: firstdecatur.org/equip.
If someone in your group is interested in signing up, they can register online here: Equip Registration Form. Paper registration will be available this weekend as well. Registration closes on Monday Feb. 8.
Thank you again for leading so well! Talk to you soon. JG
