After The Last Week
Sustained life change happens best within the context of community. These short term groups provides a taste of community, but they range from six to nine weeks. The best chance for continued growth after these groups is for members to:
- Join a Connection Group. Leaders should talk about community early and often in their groups so that members will be ready to take the next step when the group ends. Feel free to incorporate stories about your own small group throughout your short term group, especially when you share your life story. Also, tell group members about different small groups that your church.
- Serve on a team. We’ve all heard it said, “I went to serve, but I got so much in return.” Whether the opportunity is to volunteer in your church, surrounding community, or traveling abroad, when we serve others we grow.
