5-Minute Group Report

The 5-Minute Group Report helps us keep track of everything going on in our various Small Groups. It doesn't take much of your time as a leader, but provides valuable information that helps us to support and grow our groups ministry. Group Leaders should fill out the report every time their group meets.

KIDSWAY Toy Cleaning // Throughout the Year
Groups can help clean and sanitize toys and equipment throughout KIDSWAY. 

Pizza With The Pastor // Quarterly
Pizza With The Pastor is a quarterly event designed to give those who are new to Medway an opportunity to meet our staff, learn more about our church, and ask questions about our ministries. Small Groups can sign up to serve pizza and provide hospitality in order to create a welcoming environment for anyone who attends.

Treat Your Street // Fall
All groups are encouraged to practice radical hospitality in their own communities by providing special food items, beverages, or other "treats" to children and adults while they are out Trick-or-Treating.

VBS (Vacation Bible School) // Summer
VBS is our largest outreach of the year with plenty of service opportunities for individuals and small groups. In the weeks leading up to VBS we are always looking for groups who can help plan, prepare, and decorate. During the week of VBS we have opportunities for servants whether you can serve all five days or just one or two.

Yard Sale for Missions // Summer
Each year we hold a yard sale that raises thousands of dollars for local and global missions. Groups of servants are needed to help collect and organize the items people donate to be sold, to provide hospitality and help sell items, and to clean up and donate remaining items after the sale ends.
