In recent years a common plea is for “less meeting” and “more mission.” However, when meetings are necessary, members want time to be spent wisely — including time spent working for the Lord. Expectations are that a meeting will:
- be well-planned, focused on the groups goals, and begin promptly;
- begin with prayer and inspiring devotions based on God’s Word;
- be led effectively so that business is transacted smoothly;
- be stimulating, with worthwhile programs;
- provide encouragement through unity and fellowship; and
- adjourn at the time promised.
