“To walk with Jesus is to walk with a slow, unhurried pace. Hurry is the death of prayer and only impedes and spoils our work. It never advances it.”
John Mark Comer

Summer Resources for Small Groups


Volunteer at a local charity organization: The small group members can spend a day volunteering at a local charity organization, such as a food bank ‘CAM’ or a homeless shelter they could get with Lauren Butler to see if there are any opportunities, to help the less fortunate members of the community.

Organize a summer barbecue: The small group can organize a summer barbecue at a member’s home or a local park. This is a great opportunity for members to get to know each other better and to invite new members to the group.

Plan a community service project: The small group can plan a community service project, such as a neighborhood clean-up, HHS, or another charity event. This is a great way to give back to the community and to promote the church’s values.

Plan a fun day out: The small group can plan a fun day out, such as a trip to the beach, a hike, or a visit to a nearby attraction. This is a great opportunity to build relationships and have fun together.

Host a game night: The small group can host a game night, where members can bring board games or card games to play together. This is a fun way to bond and get to know each other better.

Attend a Christian conference: The small group can attend a Christian conference or retreat to deepen their understanding of their faith and to connect with other Christians.

Study a book together: The small group can select a Christian book to read and study together. This is a great way to deepen their understanding of the faith and to connect with each other on a deeper level.

Host a prayer and worship night: The small group can host a prayer and worship night, where members can come together to pray and worship.

Plan a potluck dinner: The small group can plan a potluck dinner, where members can bring their favorite dishes to share. This is a great way to connect over food and to try new things.
