"COORDINATOR SPECIAL REQUESTS" - IMPORTANT REMINDERS

LIFE GROUP FACILITATOR/HOST DETAILS - Please take a look at your "Groups Planning Center" web page. This is where everyone will sign up. Once you sign in, this is also your portal page as a leader. If you encounter an issue, please let me know.


If you HAVE NOT made contact with everyone in your group yet, you are encouraged to do that as soon as you are able. Be sure to share your enthusiasm and excitement that they have decided to join your group and any details about the potluck, what they need to bring, where you live, when it starts, etc. Make sure they have all the details they need along with contact information in case they get lost. If between now and the start of your meeting you have more people join your group, be sure to plug them in too.


We already have 158 people signed up for our group with over a week to go! That's great!


SERVE OPPORTUNITIES:

Be sure to check out our Life Group SERVE page on our website. Opportunities to pick a serve project start Saturday after training. There are a number of opportunities provided for your groups and they are all on a 'first-come-first-serve' basis. Some of you may want to pick as a group. Others of you may want to choose on behalf of your group before it even begins. How you choose is entirely up to you as Leaders. Again, if you have questions don't hesitate to contact Jennifer Butts. http://hanfordcrc.org/lifegroups/serve-opportunites
