The summer is a lot of fun for adults, families, students, and kids. But for LifeGroup Leaders, summer can sometimes be frustrating. When I was a new LifeGroup Leader, I thought I was prepared for summer. My wife and I led a discussion with our group at the beginning of May to see if they wanted to meet during the summer or take some time off. They had expressed genuine and unanimous interest in continuing to meet weekly through June, July, and August. However, that interest turned out to be unrealistic. Between birthday parties, vacations, or family visits, my wife and I would often be ready to lead the group, but no one showed up, having cancelled at last minute.
