Vision Weekend | Jeff Klingenberg
As your Group is getting started, go around the Group and have everyone report a win that has happened since the previous meeting. A win is anything good that God has done in your life.
I Thessalonians 5:23 "Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."
How will you strengthen people for life this year?
"Real freedom is being able to not have my way and still being just as happy as if I did."
If anyone in your group is being called to lead a small group, suggest that they start praying about how they can seize the opportunity to lead the people around them. Encourage them not to wait until the last minute and ask them if they want to become your “assistant small group leader” so they can start taking steps in that direction.
Midway through this week, send a follow-up email/text message to your group with some or all of the following:
- "How have you heard God speak today?"
- A note of encouragement
Follow up on any specific prayer requests mentioned during your Group meeting.
