Vital Worship Worship is a time when the body of Christ comes together to celebrate the Lord. Psalm 133:1-2 How good and pleasant it is when Gods people live together in unity It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard,running down on Aarons beard, down on the

collar of his robe. Sugar Hill UMC Latino Gathering Vital Churches focus on increasing the effectiveness of Lay Leaders (understand their role and carrying

these roles out effectively Vital churches always provide training for all their laity leaders. Why? Because leaders always function better when they know what is expected of them and

receive training to enable them to adequately When you combine the words Clergy and Lay, you get CLAY. God can work with clay! Gene Sheffield

The function of the Lay Leader is vitally important to the church. The Lay Leader serves as the primary contact between the laity and the clergy. For someone who has never held this position before, the thought of being Lay Leader can be overwhelming. These feelings make us feel inadequate for the task. We not

only need training, but also to be reminded that God has all the power we need and that he equips those he calls. He has given us His Holy Spirit, Living water, who lives in us. Even knowing this, we sometimes feel like our earthen vessel is just dirt with holes in it and muddy water is leaking out. When Clergy and Laity work together we are reminded that Heaven is Gods throne and earth is His footstool. Anything that might

Leadership Triangle Mike Selleck shared during our training class Mike Selleck shared with us this Leadership Triangle which shows how the closer one gets to the top of the triangle, the less room there is to dodge or hide from tasks and responsibilities. Leaders who have not received sufficient training to feel they really

understand their role and know how to carry out the functions expected frequently want to hide from their responsibilities and when questioned often become defensive. Because the Lay Leader is very close to the top of the triangle, it is very important that he or she feel confident to carry out the duties and responsibilities of the role.

Training booklets for each of the Admin. Council Committees The duties of the Lay Leader are described in The Discipline 2012, but more information is needed to feel confident. Jodeco Road UMC have purchased books that explain the purpose and function of each of the committees that make up the Administrative Council.

Griffin FUMC, where annual Leadership training is held The Griffin District Leadership Committee annually provides training not only for the lay leaders but also for many of the various committees that function within a church. This training is provided for the entire district and is usually held at Griffin First UMC. Booklet given to Lay Leaders who

Premise The church in times past did not thrive around the small group concept A different Christian Education model must

be used to accommodate the mega church phenomenon St. James UMC, Alpharetta DEMOGRAPHICS

Mission Specific We embrace , Equip and Empower people to go and make disciples for Jesus Christ SMALL GROUP STRUCTURE

Creative Relevant Inviting SMALL GROUP STRUCTURE Renamed our Sunday School model to be AM Sunday Bible Study Courses Adults and children who strive to increase their

Designed Small Group Structure Prayer for direction Paths for all ages and stages Market the paths to Christian growth in a way that entices the body of believers to grow to be disciple makers.

SMALL GROUP STRUCTURES We have intentionally created opportunities for common groups to congregate such as: Mighty Men of Valor Bible Study UMW Sister to Sister Bible Study Stewardship Workshops

Seenager Bible Study Couples Bible Study MasterLife Bible Study Disciple Bible Study Youth Ministry Advisory Council Survival Kit for Adults and Youth ADDITIONA L SMALL

GROUP Thriving Outreach Program UNITS SMALL GROUP STRUCTURE Small Groups provide the following: Intimacy Confidentiality

Sharing opportunities No time restraints on how long it takes the group to get to the same level of growth Familial connections The opportunity to realize that every member of the body is connected to each other and are a necessary part of the body of Christ. These things can only be accomplished effectively in small group dynamics.

SMALL GROUPS FOR ALL AGES & STAGES = VITAL CHURCHES As the church recognizes the need to become relevant using the tool called small groups, combined with the gospel of Jesus Christ and prayer, creative ways to draw all men unto Christ, can result. Then the Church of Jesus Christ can grow into an entity that will change the world, even if only in the corner where each of us abides, in Him.

Thank You!
