Summers and Small Groups
What are your plans for your small group this summer? You have been working on growing friendships and community. Summertime can throw a wrench into things. But Minnesota summers are so short! Some small groups at WLC take a break – some meet less often – some will meet monthly for a barbecue or picnic. If that’s your plan, encourage your group to study or read their Bibles independently.
No worries, I've got a few suggestions for your group to transition your way through the summer.
Serve together! Can you find a single mom or an older person that you can help with a spring cleanup?
Sponsor a missionary – our youth are taking several trips and can always use support or prayer partners. How about signing up to do the nursery together a couple of times? This is so hard to staff during the summer time.
Have some fun! Research some of the free concerts in the area parks to attend.
Como Park has Grovin’ in the Garden – Wednesday evenings check the website for dates and bands:
Minneapolis has Music in the Parks –
Here is a schedule of all the Art Fairs this summer:
Other suggestions are… Plan to sit together at worship. Once a month fill a whole row in worship. Go out for lunch or coffee after.
Saint’s games are always fun and affordable.
Go to an outdoor movie together.
Meet at Black Dog Coffee Saturday morning, then cross the street to visit the Farmer’s Market.
Thank you for all you do!
