WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? The list of ways to communicate are numerous. The 21st Century has supplied us with numerous ways to communicate valuable information to our group. This information in many cases is quite important to our groups and also holds the key to make sure that people are taken care of through prayer & ministry.
This information communicated helps members know how they can minister and what they can do in their group to help others. This gives people in the group “buy-in” so they feel a part of the group and not just attend. Typically there are events or a “What is Going On” section. You want to make sure the class stays active.
“WHAT DO I DO?” One of the easiest ways to start communicating and maybe the oldest is a Class or Group Newsletter. A newsletter!!! Yes, people still use them and the are quite effective.
Newsletters can be mailed, handed out in class, or sent as a simple “E-Newsletter.” You should include contact information for people to get in touch with leaders.
A group mission project should be at the forefront of most any Newsletter. Prayer needs & some sort of upcoming events section always proves to be a good beginning.
People want to know that the group is “valuable” enough for them to be a part of it. Add value to your group, start a newsletter and start communicating!
