SEPT 8 | GROW TOGETHER WEEKLY UPDATE

Hello awesome small group leaders and teachers.  I am getting really excited about the Finding Your Way Back to God series as we launch this weekend.  As a reminder, your group will want to follow the sermon, so please plan to go through Session 1 with your group following the sermon this weekend.

FINDING YOUR WAY BACK WEEK 1

maxresdefaultWeek 1 is about awakening to longing.  The Big Idea for week 1 is, “We all have a longing to love and be loved in return, to find purpose for our days, and to make sense out of life when life doesn’t seem to make any sense.  That longing is from God, and when you allow that strong desire for more to draw you nearer to him, he will fulfill your longings.” (Finding Your Way Back to God: Participants Guide p. 3)

 

WHAT YOU NEED FOR THE STUDY

IMG_6958Please make sure you encourage the members of your group or class to pick up their copy of the Discussion Guide this weekend, so they are ready for your first gathering. They are available at the church bookstore for $6 plus tax.

Please also make sure you have the video handy and a way to show it to your group (streaming to your tv, on your laptop/tablet, etc.).  Those are available on Rightnow Media here:

If you need an account you can get one of those here:

Please also take the time to read through the questions in advance and determine which ones will work best for your group.  While this study may appear to be primarily evangelistic, I believe these questions will work well even in a group of mature believers.

 

LEADER HUDDLES

GT Invite.001I absolutely love Leader Huddles.  I enjoy the opportunity to gather with each of you for connection, encouragement, training and prayer.  With that in mind I wanted to schedule the Leader Huddles for the rest of the year and ask you to please mark your calendar.  Below are the dates.  Each meeting will be in Mosaic Cafe from 6:30-7:30 pm.

 

HUDDLE DATES

  • October 23
  • December 4
  • February 26

Thank you again!  Praying that week 1 of the FYWBTG study goes great for your group.
