One of the best ways to build community in a group is to serve together. That's why mission trip teams form such tight bonds. We encourage our small groups to do at least one service project together each semester. We want our communities to buzz with God's love as our groups demonstrate it to them in very practical ways.
In the past couple of weeks, we've seen some really fun stuff.
Props to Michael Ferrigno and Jeremy Hancock. Our Fantasy Baseball groups serve as the grounds crew at a local Little League Field. You can see pictures and read more about it here at the Zone Gathering, our online community for NCC small group leaders.
Props to Joseph Llobrera. His Social Justice group went out to help with an Anacostia River clean up. You can see pictures and read more about them here at Zone Gathering.
