WEDNESDAYS: APRIL 21 & MAY 19 | 2PM EDT
This two-part webinar series will explore how small groups are both gathered and sent.
The first webinar (April 21) will focus on how we are gathered in small groups and the nature of our internal life as a community of believers. As coordinators and facilitators we must nurture this inner life assisting groups to develop deeper relationships. Of concern for us is how do we accompany one another in faith in times of challenge?
The second webinar (May 19) will look at the public life of a small group and God’s invitation to us to be missionary disciples. This is often challenging for small groups as they grow and they are uncertain about being sent. As a small group how do we discern God’s call for our group? How are we sent forth in charity, service and advocacy?
