I just want to say AGAIN…. “YAY!” for Lulu! This set of 3 mirrors she helped me pick out for for our last small group “grouping event“. They really make the room feel so much less like an old building and more like home!”
Other things may be simple, but take a lot of work. Here are some of THOSE things:
1. Making Stuff for Grouping Events!
Things need to look simple. But making things LOOK simple is hard! Here are a few of the things we have made in order to simplify the grouping process at these events…
Cliff sent me a picture of some small group cards hanging on something. Bret and Ginger had done something like this before and shared the basic idea. GUYdidn’t get off so easy. He listened to me, went shopping with me and then spent a day cutting, nailing, glueing, hingeing and painting! (It is true that he is my better half!)
2. Grouping people after an event
Here are some simple tips to make keeping up easier…
- Use a spreadsheet, notebook or whiteboard to track who you are trying to group with whom and what contact you have had
Copy both leader and prospective group member when emailing to set up a connect.
Don’t be discouraged! Just a few weeks ago we finally grouped a couple that we have been talking to and following up with for A YEAR! They are the greatest people, real includers, they were some of our strongest inviters today!
