    Homewood

    Description:

    This group is for women who are interested in leading a small group one day and want to learn more of the practical elements of leading. Each week, they'll cover a different element of leading - everything from where to meet, how to design Bible study questions, and how to recruit and retain group members. This group will give each member the opportunity to lead various aspects of the group. There might even be a bit of homework during the week. This group is definitely for the person looking to refine her leadership skills. 


    This group is open to women and meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm in various Homewood locations. Because of this group style, it is limited to six members. This group is adults only. No children, please.
