THE MEETING

Things to Remember:


Topic: GREATER THAN – A STUDY IN HEBREWS
Message #20: The Kind of Faith That God Rewards
Dr. Larry Osborne


Goals for the Evening: 

  • To share in Communion—set aside at least 15 minutes
  • To bring closure to the Growth Group year
  • To have people discuss any plans for an optional summer social
  • To discuss the homework, if you have time
  • To discuss next year’s plans for your group
  • To fill out the feedback forms, if you have not already done so

WRAP UP ONLINE FEEDBACK FORMS
If you did not do Feedback Forms last week, please make sure to have your group complete them this week. If for some reason you and/or the members of your group did not receive the emails with the link to your Feedback Form, you can find the link to your form on the Leader Resources page.

DISCUSS PLANS FOR THE FALL
Find out from your group if they know their plans for being part of the group in the fall. They can indicate their plans on the Feedback Forms. Also, let us know of any roster updates or changes that you know of, to your meeting day, time or location for the Fall quarter when you submit your attendance.

CONNECT AND PRAY

  • As the quarter draws to a close, continue to make sure you leave plenty of time to pray, connect and process what’s going on with people in the group, plans for the summer and fall, etc
  • Take some time to pray for new leaders and hosts to launch new Growth Groups in the Fall.

EVENTS & CLASSES COMING THIS SUMMER
Check out the North Coast Classes page to see what’s coming this summer. We are offering a wide range of events and classes between June and August. You can attend on your own, or you may want to consider making one of these events a summer social for your group! 

LEADER INFO

ATTENTION – End of the Year Roster Updates Needed:

  • As you post your final attendance, please review your night, time, location, group focus, and roster, and then submit any anticipated revisions for the Fall Quarter.  Thank you for your prompt reply as this will greatly help us anticipate the needs for new Fall Growth Groups. 
  • Online attendance can be easily accessed at: members.northcoastchurch.com

COMMUNION
We’ve designed the homework this week to help your group look back at this year and talk about what you’ve learned. The questions will transition you in to a time of reflection, prayer and communion. Check out the Leader Guide and the Leader Audio for more details and instructions.

SUMMER SOCIAL
A number of groups have a social during the summer. Do not feel guilty if you are not planning to do this, but feel free to plan something, especially if your group is continuing in the fall.
