Bonding and Deepening Growth Ideas
It seems groups that bond and grow have went through something together- mission trip, hard football practices, tragedy in the group, etc. They can come unplanned, but some are planned (to the degree you can do that). I have a group of varied incomes and several with parents who are unchurched so most won't put extra income toward a church function. I know Mission Trips are excellent planned "trials" to help with growth, but are there others? Are there inexpensive ways to bring those kind of results - and things that can be done as we come toward cold fall and winter weather? Many ideas seem to come from summer or California-type weather (no offense - enjoy it!) Just looking for lost cost ($$ wise) challenging ideas to deepen a group.
