CARE AND NURTURE OF YOUR SMALL GROUP
If you participate in a small group (or want to), if you lead a small group (or want to), if you’ve ever been frustrated by the problems of a group you were part of, this workshop is for you. Among our terrific resources: some of the excellent research and writing about the dynamics of small groups in congregations, Amy’s expertise from many years of leading small groups in and beyond congregations, and your collective experience. We’ll cover the life-cycle of groups; working constructively with conflict; knowing your group’s purpose, deepening its mission, and finding the appropriate structure; building trust; how to bring new people into your group while maintaining the group’s cohesion; publicity and outreach; and getting help. We’re guessing you have at least one question, so please bring it with you, written down and ready to share.
