Let me add to Rob’s blog from yesterday about Mid-Size Communities. In addition to what Rob said, we have been talking about the idea of gathering groups of cells into MSCs at our church for the following reasons:
1) It feels more accessible than cells to some people. The intimate setting of a cell can feel intimidating to some people if they have not experienced it before. A cell member can invite a preChristian to come along to the picnic/house renovation project, and then as they work together, the member can invite the new person to group saying “many of the people you’ve worked with today will be there, too.”
2) It eases the pain of birthing. When it comes time to multiply, members can be reassured they will see each other regularly as the cells reunite as a MSC each month.
3) Greater mission potential – 3 cells can accomplish more than 1!
