Lifegroup Leader Update| 3.19.18

This week is our last LIFEgroup meeting for the next two weeks as next week we’ll take a breather for Spring Break. As usual we’ll kick off at 6:20 this week and have you to groups a few minutes before 7. As we head into Spring, here’s your friendly reminder to message your group and invite them to Wed. night LIFEgroups.


One area I want to bring up is worship in LIFEgroups. Lately we’ve noticed pockets of students struggling to pay attention in worship. Some are on their phones or talking with friends. We want to correct this problem and model worship to them. Thus, if you usually make it to LIFEgroups in time for worship, will you begin to sit with your class from 6:20-6:50? Many of you have joined in with your group for worship on Wednesday nights and our desire is to keep improving in that area. I hope to see you in Hudson Hall on Wednesday night and thanks in advance for your help in this regard.


One last note is that Parent Focus Night is April 4 and on that Wednesday night we’ll be launching ALL of our Summer18 events including Mission615, Chicago, and Beach Camp. Vancouver is currently available for registration.


Mission615 – June 4-6 – Nashville, TN (new lodging location!)

Vancouver Mission Journey – June 9-16 – Vancouver, BC, Canada
Beach Camp – June 22-26 – Panama City, FL

Senior Stay – June 26-28 – Panama City , FL

Chicago Mission Journey – July 14-20 – Chicago, IL


All the details are available at


See you Wednesday!

Lifegroup Leader Update| 8.28.17


If you’re receiving this post, we’ve got you down to lead in LIFEgroups this year! First of all, on behalf our team, thank you for your commitment to join in and help disciple these students. They’re incredible and we’re excited to journey with both you and them this year.

This Wed. night is the official start of groups for the Fall semester! We’ve seen God do some incredible things in the first 3 kickoff nights, with salvations and students desiring obedience with baptism. Praise God. Several of the students who made decisions signed up for groups and will join us for their very first LIFEgroup night this week. I can’t wait.

We’ve worked to let you know your partner(s) and grade for this year and shortly you’ll be receiving an email from Mac with all the information you’ll need including resources and how to login to the LIFEgroups curriculum database. Roles for your class will be available on Wed. night before groups.

Below are a couple of quick hits for THIS week. There is no LDR Update attached. All info is below.

Quick things for Wed. night –

1.      This Wed. night, ALL students who have NOT signed up for LIFegroups but show up for LIFEgroups will be meeting upstairs in the loft.

2.      If you have a student in your room that is not on your role, please send them (or show them) to the loft above Hudson Hall so we can get them signed up and in a group for next week. If you know of any students that have not signed up, please have them sign up ASAP at

3.      We’re going to bring all the LIFEgroup leadership on stage to pray over you tomorrow night right after the worship songs are finished. This should be right around 6:30-6:40pm. Please come into Hudson Hall so that we can recognize you and pray over you.

4.      Attached is a quick icebreaker for your group time on Wed. night. We’ll have a pack on M&M’s when you arrive on Wed. night if you choose to use it. Contextualize it for your group however you’d like. It’s simply a convo starter.

If you have any questions at all, please let me know.

Praying for an incredible first night in groups!
