As your connections coordinator, I have the chance to spend time with you, to find out what ways you can get plugged in here at Greenview Christian Church.

During these summer months, some groups have chosen to take a break. I understand that, with 6 kids at home right now, finding the point in the week where everyone’s schedule lines up can be difficult. Take these as opportunities to break out of your “routine”. Find something new to do with your group, take time to involve families and use this time to re-evaluate your goals for the small group.
Here is an interesting article discussing these issues.
