Huddle Debrief and GROUPLINK this weekend!

We had an awesome time at the Groups Team Huddle last night! Thanks so much to those of you who could make it! Here's a quick debrief of the highlights...

At Mission, we want these four values to be present in essentially every environment we create, and they are a great guide for what we do in our groups.

  • We INVITE people in, and invite people to take their next steps, because we have a God that is always inviting us.
  • We are PREPARED because our preparation honors our group members. And the best way to prepare for a discussion is by having OUR OWN answers to the questions that we are asking.
  • We KNOW them, because we believe that our God knows us and loves us completely. And when we work hard to know our people well, we give them a picture of the way God pursues us.
  • We have FUN, because there is no divide between our "spiritual life" and our "normal life"! God wants our whole selves... and fun breaks down the walls inside and between us. 

We learned together that what we discuss matters! People normally retain very little of the important things we teach them on a Sunday, or that they study in a book... until they talk about in OUR groups during the week, and then start APPLYING those things in their everyday lives! 

Here is a look at what Series to expect this fall, and what study we are kicking off with in Spark Groups! 

*You can purchase "Seamless" for $18 at GROUPLINK, Spark, on a Sunday, or on Amazon.

We've got some new easy, memorable links that will resource you each week. 

Groups Team Resource: weekly updates, tips, and ideas for you as a leader or host

Mission Groups Discussion Guide: everything you and your group members need for each week's discussion

Spark Groups Discussion Guide: everything you and your group members need for each week's discussion

And of course... we had some fun! :) 

We may serve separately, but it is always so good to come together so we can remember that we are better together. I'm so thankful for each of you, and how you serve God and His Church so faithfully with your one and only lives. It's an investment that makes an eternal difference in so many people's lives! And we are in it together!
