It was wonderful to see so many of you on March 10 for our training called “Standing Firm: Leading from the Trenches.” We looked at what Scripture teaches us about “Spiritual Warfare” and how that influences the way we lead and encourage our groups. If you missed it, here’s a link to the training video as well as the notes. Thanks so much for your leadership! It’s a blessing to serve with you!!

As we enter a new season I’d like to remind you of a couple of important upcoming dates.
The More & Better Discipleship Workshop is Saturday, February 20, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
This workshop provides a practical plan for every leader who wants to help the people they serve to take the next step of spiritual growth. Discipleship will be demystified, offering a clear design for helping someone grow as a disciple. If you serve at Lighthouse – whether you’re an experienced leader or someone who has never discipled another believer – More and Better is for you. This two-and-a-half hour workshop is a practical resource, spurring one another on, to a life of love and service to God.
BONUS – the first 75 people who register and attend the workshop will receive a free copy of Multiply by Francis Chan and Mark Beuving. This book is one of the resources we will recommend at the workshop and is specially designed to use in discipleship relationships. Childcare is available for children through Kindergarten age with pre-registration. Register online here.
Groups Leaders Retreat is Saturday, April 9, 2016 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Details coming soon, save the date!
I wish you all a safe and Happy New Year celebration!
