I have another amazing story to share about one of our Life Groups.
We were gathering for a prayer time in one of our rooms when one of our teachers brought a person in with them. She said here is "Becky" and she is returning today to the church. We have been contacting her consistently even though she has not been here in two years and she came back today!!
Notice the word they used to describe who helped to get Becky there, "we". This is what Life Groups are all about! It's not just one person working absentees but it is an entire group seeing how they are accountable and responsible to each other. You are to have a ministry leader that coordinates the contacting but it is the whole group that works together.
Friends I encourage you to see what "Becky's" you have on your roll. Keep reminding your group to stay consistent in contacting. Stay focused in reaching out. Then celebrate when someone returns!
How grateful I am that I have the opportunity to serve at a church with Life Groups that don't give up!
