Welcome to our Community Group! Just wanted to drop a quick note to say “Hi” and introduce myself. My name is <<NAME>>, and I’ll be leading our group. I’m excited to get to know you over the next few months. We’ll be learning, eating, and, hopefully, laughing together.
Our group's first meeting will be at Woodstock City Church at <<TIME>> on <<DAY>>.
***Important: Attendance at this meeting is required. If for some reason you can't be at the kickoff, please let me know ASAP so we can hold your spot in the group.
Look for another email from me soon where we'll meet all of our group members via email before we meet in person at our group kickoff! Looking forward to meeting you!
SECOND EMAIL TEMPLATE
Subject: Our First Group Meeting
Send: When your group is full OR Friday, August 23. Please CC (not BCC) all group members so they can “Reply all” to introduce themselves.
I wanted to send a quick welcome to everyone in our group. We hope this will be a place where we experience authentic community and spiritual growth. We’ll talk more about that next week!
We’ll meet one another for the first time next week to kick off our group at Woodstock City Church. You’ll receive the logistical details in a text from Woodstock City. This meeting is a great way for us to connect and get ready for our first study together.
In the meantime, if you haven’t already, please introduce yourself to the rest of the group!
