This Week: Launch Week!

This is the week we launch our 2015-16 Lighthouse Year. There is more excitement going into this year’s launch than in recent memory. We have many new groups, and folks have stepped out of their comfort zones and signed up for new groups. Praise the Lord!

This Week’s Resources:

The resources linked above will help you prepare for your first night. This week is an informal week. If you have a new group, take time to get to know each other and lay out the expectations for your group. If you have a returning group, catch up on what’s happened over the summer, and restate the purpose and expectations for your group.

The Lighthouse Covenant (online | pdf) is a good document to use to guide your discussion during this portion of the meeting.

Be sure to continue to check your group’s participants via FFC Connect ( during the weekend. I will update the rosters as names come in. For Sunday groups, I will update the rosters early Sunday afternoon. Give your group a final check going into your Sunday evening meeting to make sure there are no last minute additions to your roster.

If you have any concerns or questions going into your first week, don’t hesitate to contact me ( or your elder.
