Starting Out Strong

Starting out strong is essential with each new group. As you receive registrations (via email) from the Small Group Coordinator please respond within 2-3 days to each new member with the following three pieces of information:

  • First of all, members need to know where and when their group is officially meeting.  The address of each small group is never shared online for the safety and security of everyone involved.  
  • Secondly, they need to have instructions about what resources they'll need to buy before their group starts and where they are most likely to be able to find them.
  • Thirdly, they need to know you are excited to connect with them and are looking forward to helping them feel comfortable as they join your group.
