Missional Small Groups
Streams Church is a relational community of faith with commitment to discipleship and mission.
Therefore:
- Each small group needs to reflect this core value.
- Each small group needs to build community through...
   - Relationships
   - Discipleship
   - Mission
- To accomplish Relationships:
   - Weekly/Bi-Weekly Meetings
   - Periodic Socials
- To accomplish Discipleship
   - Worship/Bible Study at Meetings
   - Personal Accountability
- To accomplish Mission
   - Pick a Mission to be committed to
   - Facilitate that mission with volunteers and resources
 
Build Community through Mission
- Each small group will agree upon a mission.
   - This will be decided through the passions of the group or by a need in the community.
   - It can be a partnership with an existing outreach:
      - Habitat for Humanity
      - Local food bank
      - Social Services in the community
   - It can be a unique mission of the group:
      - Adopting a neighborhood (landscaping, block parties, etc)
      - Adopting a teacher/school
- Financial Infrastructure
      - Have a Small Groups Missions Account
      - People within or outside the group can fund the group's mission
      - This runs through the church's financial system
