Hello awesome Grow Together Leaders,
First of all, I just want to say thank you. I know you don’t hear it enough, but what you do matters and you are so vital to the growth and development of people in our congregation. Thank you for showing up in difficult moments, thank you for taking the time to prepare each week, and thank you for taking the time to pay attention to the lives of the people in your group and pray for them. Those things truly matter, and they would not happen if you didn’t step up to make them happen. Thank you.
OK, enough mushy stuff. Here are 2 really important items.
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MARK [working title]
The weekend of Feb 17/18 we begin a 6 week series, leading up to Easter, focused on the life of Jesus as portrayed in the book of Mark. Each week of this series we will provide a small group study that will build upon what was taught the previous weekend. We would love for every group and class to join us in this study during those weeks. Each week, the study will be available here the Thursday before the weekend. More details about that next week, but I wanted to give you a heads up as you plan your group time for the next several weeks. Please plan to join us for this series. We’ve seen over and over again the value of linking our groups to what is happening on the weekends.
As I mentioned in the email I sent last week, we are in the process of updating to a new database called Realm. To help get this ready to roll out to the congregation, I need to hear from each of you, so I can get your group set up in Realm. I will share more about this later, but there are some really cool features that are going to help us keep better track of our groups and communicate with them. In light of that, if you haven’t already, please click here to send me the information below about YOUR GROUP.
- Who’s in your group?
- What day do you meet?
- How often do you meet? (every wk, every other, 1st and 3rd, 2nd and 4th, etc.)
- Where do you meet?
As always, thank you for investing yourself in discipling the people of FCC. I appreciate each of you. – JG
