Staying connected w/ your small group during the summer

Posted in better disciples at 9:14 AM by alexlozada

Many MCC small groups gear down in the summer – understandably so because the real-life relationships in group follow the real-life schedules of school & work.

Some groups continue to connect well over the summer – pool parties, picnics, and play dates.  Here are a couple of growing opportunities that are NOT dependent on weekly / bi-weekly meetings:

I’ve linked to a great article about praying outside the four walls of the church building – here’s an article on “Prayers With Feet” (prayer) walking w/ your group members through their neighborhoods.

This article focuses on reading through the Bible in a year, but along w/ the “Yay God!” stories about the power of reading the Bible together, there are links at the bottom of the article about various Bible reading plans. Your group could adapt one to use over the summer.  Or try to read through one or more of the Bible books we recommend at MCC’s Welcome to Mountain class: Mark, Luke, Acts, James, Ephesians.
