Training for Potential New Growth Group Leaders
Do you have a heart to serve Jesus & others, could you be better equipped to help lead a group?
Next term Stacey will run a five-week course for potential growth group leaders.
The course outlines key aspects of being and growing as a growth group leader, including:
  • prayerfully understanding and applying God’s word to yourself
  • preparing to lead others to God’s word
  • leading the discussion
  • leading the group in prayer.
One of the implications of the doctrine of the clarity of Scripture is that the Bible is accessible to all who humbly believe – you don’t need to know everything to begin to lead others in reading and understanding God’s word. 
The course is planned for Term 4 Wednesday evenings, to start on Oct 13 via Zoom.
Anyone is welcome to do the course, and then to consider (along with staff and others) how best you can serve next year.

I’m pretty sure these people are doing the ‘wrong thing’.

Lockdown presents a variety of challenges for each of us. As a lover of rules and order – wanting to make sure I’m doing the ‘right thing’ – worrying about what other people are up to was initially a challenge for me. It was the way lockdown was meant to work. We do the right thing and stay home. The case numbers go down and lockdown is over. Hooray! But it hasn’t worked out that way. While I’ve figured out click-and-collect, embraced supporting local business (i.e. takeaway dinners), and ordered essentials from KMart, cases continue to climb...

However, sometimes we can get bogged down in life and fail to be intentional in serving Jesus. So that's why I think MTS Recruit is a great conference because its aim is to help you think and grow in service of Christ!

Here are the details:

* Only one week to go. (Please Register ASAP!!!)

* Cost: $10

* St Michael's will join with the Uni Bible Group
