Drive-by Cookies and Milk to Life Groups

 —  April 24, 2012 — 4 Comments

Last week I ran around to a few Life Groups doing “drive-by” milk and cookies runs. It was so much fun! Here’s what I was hoping to accomplish:

  • Encourage some leaders: Picking out some leaders who I haven’t connected with or spent time with lately is essential.Young leaders, rookie leaders are good targets!
  • Help them finish strong: this time of year groups tend to get smaller and could fade here at the end. A little boost of energy/buzz this time of year.
  • Surprise some students: Nothing better than barging in the front door of a small group with a gallon of milk and 4 packages of cookies. I let the leaders know I’m coming, but keep students in the dark.

  1. I loved seeing you do this last week! Not sure who had the bigger smile on their face…the students getting the milk and cookies, or you as you delivered the goods!

    P.S. my group meets in the War Room on Tuesday nights at 7:00!

  2. I do this too (for all the same reasons)! Love it. Most of the time I bring Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
