As we head into a new small group season, you are either launching a new group or kicking off with your existing group. Whatever category you fall into, as leaders, we have goals for the season. We want to build community, be available and consistent through different life stages, and have open and honest dialogue about our group. We hope to do all of these things to grow in faith and community. Sometimes, however, that's easier said than done.
Within the first few weeks, a roadblock may develop. Don't let that stop your momentum. Instead, get creative!
Here are some common roadblocks with some creative solutions. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so allow these ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Of course, one of the best places to find creative solutions to common roadblocks is to share ideas with one another. Since we are all in the trenches together, let's be sure to frequently share experiences and ideas, so that all of our groups can be fruitful communities of life change.
