Ideas for Small Groups

Words of encouragement


Do you belong to a small group that has been meeting for a while? You’ve probably walked through many difficult situations with each other. Now, it’s time for some encouragement!

At the next meeting, hand out blank note cards and envelopes (buy a set so that they all match) to each person, and ask them to address the envelope to themselves. Then collect the envelopes and randomly distribute them to each person in the group.

Ask everyone to pray during the coming week and ask the Lord for specific words of encouragement for the person whose envelope they received. Sometime in the week, they should write their words of encouragement on the note card and mail it.

It’s a great way to be an encourager, and to expand your gift of encouragement.
