Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well. I also want to welcome those of you who are new to this weekly email.
We launched three brand new small groups last weekend, and they each met yesterday for the first time, and had a great start. Welcome to the leaders of those groups!!!!!!
IN THE BEGINNING: CREATION AND FALL
As I mentioned at the Leader Huddle and two weeks ago on the blog, we will be beginning the ministry year with a 4 week study on the book of Genesis. We would love for each small group and class to join us in these studies for the next four weeks. This study is intended to be used following this weekend’s sermon.
Here is a link to download the week 2 Group/Class Guide: In the Beginning- Abraham
Please feel free to download this and share it with your group/class or we will have some paper copies available at the Welcome Center this weekend.
GROUP TIP: HANDLING SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION DOMINATORS
Ever had someone in your group try to dominate the discussion? If not, I’m a little jealous of you. If so, welcome to the club. In light of that, I came across this article that addresses “Group Dominators”. Whether you have one or not, I would recommend taking a couple minutes to read this and think through how it might strengthen your conversations in group or class.
