Happy new year!! I hope 2017 is the best year yet so far, and that you've at least got one resolution staying strong a few days in...
We are in for another exciting season at Mission! With the news about the new building, a record number of people at Mission Christmas, and some great things planned for this winter and spring, there's plenty to look forward to.
And something quick to celebrate...
>>> This fall, almost 60% of our average weekend attendance was in a group!!
That's a HUGE number! Connectedness MATTERS, and to know that so many people are engaging with God and with each other in a safe circle is something to be really excited about!
What to expect this session
For Mission Groups...
Two great series that will be huge opportunities to deepen your relationships and grow a lot in some exciting areas. We've got special video content planned too - it's going to be fun!
For Spark Groups...
The study will be chosen very soon! Stay on the lookout for another message with more details!
With so many new people coming and looking to get connected, we are always looking for leaders to start new groups!
>>> Think through the people in your group and let me know if you think someone might be a good leader soon or even down the road!
What you can be doing now
- Start talking to your people again!
- Just get the conversation going as a group. Or call to check in on someone. Have someone over for dinner. Just get the ball rolling before we start back up!
- Plan something fun!
- Fun matters! Do something no pressure, something enjoyable before we jump back into the weekly rhythm of sharing and learning. Fun leads to depth later on!
- Engage with the Discussion Guides
- This month, even through groups aren't officially in session, there will be Discussion Guides up at missionventura.com/missiongroups (and on the app). If your group is itching to get together, those are there for you to use! And Spark Groups, you can finish up Present Over Perfect if you haven't yet!
