 Saddleback Small Groups Way’s to Serve in your Small Group

 

Small groups at Saddleback do five things that relate to each of the purposes of worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and missions. We believe it is critical to balance the five purposes within every small group. Each small group has active members that take on roles to serve their small group.

 

Here are roles that should be filled to ensure that all five areas are meant, and that every participant is getting their needs met, but I need your help. Please read the role descriptions below, and tell me what role you feel that you would best serve in your small group.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me either via email wawlministry@gmail.com or on the Saddleback group board.
