Leader Best Practices
March 24, 2023
That He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
Ephesians 5:27
Can you believe we are only two weeks away from Easter!?!
We are thankful for you and your leadership. We’ve heard so many amazing stories of the life-change and growth that is happening each week in our small groups. Stay encouraged, we know how challenging leadership can be. But your consistency and dedication to foster environments of Grace and Truth within your group is transforming lives and strengthening our church and community.

If you are able, please stop by our Small Group table on Main Street after service. We’d love to hear from you, pray with you, and encourage you. Hope to see you this weekend!
Safety is the first and most important component of a healthy and thriving group. It’s established when people feel acceptance for who they are and where they are at in life. If safety is not present within a group, the other components will not have a foundation to thrive. 

A word that is interchangeable with the word safety is grace. There are two distinctions of the word grace. First, grace is the saving work of Jesus which is carried out in the lives of believers the moment they put their faith in Him. This starts the redeeming process of regeneration, sanctification, and ultimately, glorification when we get to heaven. 

The second distinction of grace is the love and acceptance one believer shows to another. Just as Christ accepted us for who we were at the time we were saved, we need to mimic this kind of love and acceptance to those within our small group. Extending grace and support to those in our small group will foster a safe environment where truth, vulnerability, and other components can flourish.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved..
John 3:17
