Adult Ministry – August 2015

As Pastor Paul mentioned, Life Groups will be starting in the fall. They are called Life Groups because each group will be sharing life together. The focus will be on Sharing (our lives with each other), Study (of God’s Word and how to live out our lives in following Jesus), and Support (with prayer and encouragement, meeting needs of those in our group and outside of it). Each Life Group session will be 10 weeks; three times a year people can join or leave a group. You may participate in one or more of the sessions.
A Life Group Covenant will be offered to and signed by each member of the Life Group, confirming a commitment for the 10-week period. Consistent attendance is asked in order to promote intimacy within the group and spiritual growth for the members.

Life Groups will be made up of 8-14 people with one designated leader (or a couple) acting as facilitator. Meetings are expected to last 1 ½ -2 hours and are offered on different evenings of the week. Some groups may choose to meet at church, but meeting in homes is encouraged.
A Life Group Leader Training is planned from 7-9 p.m. on September 10. Some leaders may choose to co-lead before leading their own group. The Adult Ministries Team is in the process of recruiting leaders. We will also be asking for people to act as hosts for a Life Group session, so watch for that opportunity. If anyone has questions, please contact one of the members of the Adult Ministry Team (email: Karen, Nancy).
