It's almost unbelievable...but just like that we are at the end of another semester!
We want to take a moment to tell you how thankful we are for you...your leadership, time and commitment! We pray that God rewards you richly and refreshes your soul according to His Word... "A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed." Proverbs 11:25.
Please take a moment to read through this month's Leader Newsletter and view the videos as the content contains some important upcoming dates and deadlines.
Happy Thanksgiving month! We pray that you have a safe and wonderful month of fellowship with family and friends.
November Encouragement: Teamwork
Happy November everyone!! It’s the last month of our 2020 Fall semester of Life Groups! This month’s leadership encouragement is focused on the last letter of the acronym LIFT. In recent months our focus has been LEADERSHIP, INFLUENCE, FOLLOW-THROUGH, and this month is… TEAMWORK!
To lead well, we need to work together because we are better together. Remember the story of Aaron and Hur holding up the arms of Moses as the armies of Israel went into battle? Exodus 17 reveals the power and impact of teamwork. As long as Moses held his arms up over his head with the staff, Joshua and the army of Israel would win the battle. But when his arms grew weary and came down, their enemy would get the upper hand. It was the teamwork of Aaron and Hur that assisted Moses to get the job done! We all get weary at times. So, who is lifting up your arms? Whose arms are you lifting? We need each other. Teamwork is the key to long term leadership success. Make it a focus to develop teammates, co-leaders and others who can help carry weight in your group and in turn share the victories with you! Healthy leaders LIFT one another up.
November Tip of the Month
November is the month of Thanksgiving and Fellowship, so our tip for this month is to take time to fellowship! Let’s schedule a day this month to have a GNI (girl’s night in) or a FNO (fellas night out) …or something else fun where there’s no Life Group agenda and you just enjoy each other’s company and take time to reflect on friendships and all the wonderful things that God has done in our families and relationships this year. Also, make sure to post your activity on social media and tag @BethelChandler so we can see what all you did together!
Gift Card Give-Away
In the November Tip of the Month video, Pastor May gave an example of something fun that a women’s group can do together. The first three people to email Pastor May what that idea was will each get a Starbucks gift card…Go! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
As we near the end of our Life Group semester, your coaches will be contacting you this month to schedule time with you and get feedback from you regarding your Life Group this semester, as well as to share some important information with you. Please do your best to attend this year-end meeting with your coach.
