Light posting lately because we are gearing up for Orbit. Orbit was an experiment we tried last year to stimulate and catalyze an environment for existing student ministry small groups to serve together. The overall picture is that we create mini projects for these small groups to come and serve, effectively sending them out for one evening, impacting the community. At the end of the night, they all return, we share, have a snack, small worship set. They see other small groups doing the same thing and they have experienced what its like to serve together. Their leaders have been enabled - they think, "I could do this with my small group myself."
One issue this year is not to have the projects be mere duplications of last year, that would be a bit boring. Some notes from last year here.
