LIFE Group Lessons Online

I have been hesitant to post this but I will go ahead and do it. I have been developing our LIFE group curriculum at church since the summer. You can download these lessons here. Feel free to use them however you want. We have also implemented another helpful idea for any of you who run a LIFE group/small group ministry. We have an online form for reporting attendance. One of the hardest things to deal with in LIFE group, next to childcare, is attendance reporting. This has really helped our ministry. I would love to hear any feedback from the lessons if you decide to use them. God bless,

    I must say, I like the LIFE acronym . . .

    Hi James, always glad to have you stop by and offer some feedback. We did a total revamp of our groups. In doing that I consider a whole range of LIFE acronyms. Sycamore view’s acronym is by far the best one that I have come across. Credit has been given to the leaders and to the congregation to sycamore view. I should probably footnote that on the website. Take care

    Thanks.

    Matt, I have your blog on my roll – I just don’t find time to comment too often (I post on my blog even less often).

    I’m from the youth-ministry school: if an idea is good, take it. SV didn’t invent anything with the LIFE stuff, we just put it into a pretty acronym. I think it’s a compliment that you think it’s good enough to use again.

    I don’t know if you have kept up with what’s going on at SV, but we are in the midst of revamping the whole LIFE group ministry. They’re letting me work to get them through the re-organization process (and it’s lots of work). I’m having a blast getting down to the work of ministry. We’re re-emphasizing LIFE in the preaching (John Mark Hicks is doing a great job) and in the group stuff.

    Hi, This is an important message, please read and pass it along. God has made contact. The message is about Revelation. The message is from God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost respectively. It was sent in the Spring of 2006. It is about the meaning of First is Last and Last is First as written in Revelation. The message is this: In the morning I go to Heaven. In the afternoon I live my life. In the evening I die, death. What does this mean? In other words this means Birth is Last and Last is Birth. To understand this don’t think from point A to point B. Think of this as a continous circle of life. Birth is First, Life, Death, Birth is Last, completing the circle. God also said that Judgment will be before Birth in Heaven. AS birth on Earth is painful so will birth in Heaven. It is possible that this message was delivered by one of God’s Angels in the Spring of 2006. Yes, God has made contact and he sent a messenger. Spread this message along, just like a chain letter. Tell two people. Melanie Stephan
