LIFE GROUP NEWS

From now until January 1, this page will be devoted to keeping you up-to-date on the latest news around launching our new Life Groups ministry.


Note: After January, this page will be transformed into our "Leader Tools" page for our Facilitators and Hosts. 

COMING LIFE GROUPS NEWSLETTER

Type the content for this section here. This is just example text to show you what it will look like when you enter text content into this section. Your unique, authentic, and appropriate text will be filled into this section. Once you click into this section, you will see the filler text disappear, and you can begin typing your real content. We’ve simply put in filler text in this area. No need to get caught up in the actual content of this body text, we just typed a bunch of meaningless sentences.

COMING TOOLS AND RESOURCES

LEADER HOMEWORK & RESOURCE NOTES:

  • This is where Facilitators and Hosts will find the most recent LEADER'S GUIDES. This gives leaders the "inside scoop" on how to facilitate good group discussions. 


GROUP MANAGEMENT:

  • We plan to use group management software from PLANNING CENTER. This is where Leaders and Hosts can go into the "Planning Center" portal to submit attendance, manage rosters, update their group calendars, and plan for service projects, socials, and more. 

COMING LEADER DOCUMENTS

Here, leaders will find Facilitator/Host job descriptions, group covenants, intake forms, and other resources to help oversee the Life Group ministry at Gateway. 


LIFE GROUP FACILITATOR/HOST DOCUMENTS:

Below are useful documents in PDF format, along with online forms, that you can use during the Life Group semester. Please call the office if you have any questions.


JOB DESCRIPTIONS:

COVENANTS:

This Covenant is vital to a healthy, thriving Life Group. Members commit to keeping each other's confidence, praying for one another, making group meetings a priority, and seeking to function as a faith family. 

INTAKE FORMS:

These forms are for you to use to share feedback with the Life Group Coordinators. Contact us by filling out the appropriate form below:

  • RECOMMEND A FACILITATOR/HOST - A form for Life Group Facilitators/Host to recommend potential Facilitators and/or Hosts.

This is used to help Life Group Coordinators know how groups are going and how we can improve. Have your group fill these out during group time and get them back to hand into the office.
