Serving Project Small Group Questions
So your small group has decided to break out of the normal routine of weekly meetings. You are going to meet together and tackle a community project, visit a nursing home, help in the kitchen at church. How do you capitalize on the experience? How can you make the serve more than just a task-based event on your group members’ calendar?
Former Erie site pastor Paul Macosko has provided a list of questions that you can use the next time your group gets together. It’s a great way to reflect on what happened to your group members and their perspective on that experience.
- Have each member who went on the serve talk about a memorable/poignant/humorous moment during the project.
- What were your thoughts or feelings before we served?
- Was there anything particularly difficult for you about the project?
- What did you learn about yourself, our group, or our city as a result of participating in the project?
- Our church’s mission is to “Eliminating barriers to give people access to Jesus Christ.” How you feel doing service projects furthers that mission?
- Do you think our group should go back to the same place or try something different for our next project?
Can you add to this list of questions? Feel free to post comments with this article to provide ways to build on and improve this idea.
Want to be an All Star? Serve in our Kitchen
Each week over a thousand people come through the doors of McLane Church. Most of them enjoy a nice meal before or after their worship service. That wouldn’t happen if it weren’t for the willing hands and hearts of those whom we call our Kitchen All-Stars.
We would love to have your small group become part of our team, serving together on a given weekend, or as individuals if that is more convenient for their schedules. Our team members prep, cook, serve and clean up the food and drink.
To learn more, or to join this team, simply drop an email to [email protected] or fill out a Welcome Center card while you’re in church.
Calling All Cars!
From time to time the Care Ministry at McLane Church is approached with a need for transportation. Namely, the person needs a car, but has no means to acquire one on their own.
It may be that you have a vehicle that you have been considering trading in or selling for a newer model. Perhaps you may want to consider donating that car to McLane Church and receive a tax deduction for its fair market value.
If you would like to make a vehicle contribution, please contact us by email at [email protected] with the details.
