Doing a study over the summer months is unrealistic for most groups, but staying connected is still important . . . and do-able.
Summer is almost here again. We're all looking forward to warmer weather, but let's face it, leading a small group during the summertime can be tough. People are distracted by vacations, holidays, summer sports, and kids free from school. Besides, the summer months just feel less structured to most of us — children and adults alike — so it's harder to motivate people to focus on group. Over the past couple years, we've written some posts to help you make the most of the summer months. They're intended to guide you in finding a workable rhythm for your group, so the people you lead can continue to connect and grow without you having to feel like you're herding cats.
I've gathered those posts here for easy reference. Check them out.
