…your small group has a website
When your small group was started we created a website just for your group and every time someone new joins your group or group information changes, your group’s site is automatically updated.
Here are some of the great things you can find on your website – photos of your group members along with their phone numbers and emails, birthdays, an email utility that lets you email everyone in your group at once, a Group Details section where you can update the information in your group, even a place to share photos of group activities with everyone in your group. Plus, there are all kinds of resources for your group including frequently asked questions, important dates for training, and a terrific online tool called the Spiritual Health Assessment that helps you see how you can grow in living a purpose driven life. In fact, the Health Assessment is modeled right from Pastor Rick’s book, The Purpose Driven Life.
Members of your small group are the only people who can visit your small group website so you don’t need to worry about privacy. To add people to your group, you need to “invite” them and once they agree to your “invitation” they will also be able to visit the group website. Just remember, if you haven't added someone to your group yet, they will not be able to visit your group's website.
Some groups use their small group website all the time to send emails to everyone in the group about events, to keep track of birthdays, to post photos from various group events and of course to consider next steps in being a purpose driven small group.
Take a few minutes and wander around your small group website. Especially, try out the buttons at the top of the page (shown above) like “email group,” or “excel” or “group details” so you can see all the great features of your website.
