Hey Everyone, can you believe it’s November already? Doesn’t it seem like we began the Tell Me MORE series just a couple of weeks ago? Anyway, in our home, Nov 1 is the beginning of Christmas Music season. I know some of you are cheering right now and others are trying to figure out how to tactfully express your disdain. Please understand that I’m not trying to convert you to our holiday timeline, I just love Christmas music and don’t want to limit it to the 4 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Having said that, Thanksgiving is only a 3 weeks from today. Being thankful is fundamental to what it means to be a Christ follower. With that in mind, I thought it would be cool if several group leaders shared ideas on how you could take time to be thankful as a small group or class? In light of that, please share an idea in the comment section below. That way everyone can see it and borrow it.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, I wanted to remind you that we have a LEADER HUDDLE on the Sunday before Thanksgiving (Nov 19) at 6 PM in MOSAIC CAFE. DINNER IS PROVIDED. This time we are going to be talking about:
Just to be clear, this is NOT how to make your group larger. It is how to help the people in your group/class become more like Christ.
GROUP SERVE OPPORTUNITY
You may have heard me say before that the goal of our Grow Together Groups is to:
- Share Life
- Pursue God
- Invest in Others
Those first two are a little easier to do, but Investing in Others can often be challenging. With that in mind, it is my goal to routinely bring ideas of how your group can Invest in Others.
As it turns out, right now we have a small group who serves at Hickory Point Christian Village one evening a month. The group spends time talking with the people there, playing games, and building relationships. That partnership has gone very well, and HPCV is asking if we might have other groups who would be interested in coming one night to serve. The best options for them would be the 2nd or 4th Monday or Wednesday night of each month. If you think your group would be interested in this opportunity please let me know and I would be happy to help you connect.
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. I am here to help.
