Missional LIFEgroups

What is a Missional LIFEgroup?

It is a small group that is concerned with those outside the group along with those inside the group. We can become stagnant and only concerned about our own soul and not the souls all around us. It is showing the Love of God to our neighbors. 

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.” - John 13:34

Begin praying for God to show you opportunities in our community where you can share and show the love of God; think outside the box and ask your group for suggestions. 

PROJECT IDEAS

Below you will find lists of projects ideas subdivided into Levels of Interaction and Categories. (Click on the + sign to open each individual list)   

Before you select an idea, begin by asking your group members the following questions. Hopefully, the answers will help you develop a project that is a perfect fit for your group.

  • Who in your neighborhood or community has a need?
  • Which business or organization within your sphere of influence could use a blessing?
  • What project types best suit your group’s ages and abilities? (Prayer, worship, teaching, physical labor, etc.)
