1). Blog Entry: Leaders Corner - Small Group Rules
     One of the great ministry models that has been effective over the last few decades is that of Small Groups. Gathering 3 to 13 people together, from similar backgrounds and life situations, and discussing the Word of God together and applying it to their lives. It's especially effective in helping those in large churches get connected to a small group of people who will become life-long friends and partners in their Christian journey. But even a smaller church of 20 can develop small groups as well. It has also been a reliable tool for helping those who haven't yet made a commitment to Christ or the church check it out first. Here are some good rules to follow for small groups committed to serving 'seekers' in their community, from Don Evert in his book, I Once Was Found: 

Rules for Small Seeker Groups 
1. You must grow
2. Be curious and ask questions
3. Be honest about what's going on inside
4. Take risks and try new things
5. Listen to others in the group

1). Blog Entry: Life Lessons - Tuneup
     Everything in this world has a lifespan. It's the way God made us and all of creation. I was out riding my bike like I have pretty much every day since our final camp in June was complete. I'm preparing for our NE Missions Bike Ride at the beginning of September. I usually go about 20 miles a day on different routes around town. On this particular day, I decided to take a longer route south of city beyond the interstate that I hadn't taken yet this season. After turning around to come home, I noticed a strange sound from my tire. As I stopped in some shade to take a look, I noticed that my brakes on the front tire were losing and rubbing against the wheel, causing friction. I took out my bike allen wrench and fixed it the best I could, annoyed but good to go. I often check my air pressure and lube my chain regularly before heading out, but rarely check the brakes. Now, that will become a weekly task. LIFE LESSON - Everything needs a tuneup from time to time. Plan ahead and do it regularly or you can do it surprisingly in a moment, ready or not.
