    I have stepped out in faith and started a new group within our Sunday School Department. I am currently praying for God to work in each of our lives to fill the empty chairs in this particular class. Ideas presented are great ones for me to learn!

      dj > You are being the leader. Great job! Someone has to lead and cast a vision for a new group. You have started a movement within your department.

      You might consider going through the department’s members and invite people who have quit attending to join your new group. Also, remember to ask your friends and neighbors to give your new group a try.
