I think one important way to approach creating community is to make an effort to live life together. Find reasons to spend time together away from church. Planning a trip to the music store? Call some WT members. Putting together a game night at your house? Do it with WT members. Great band coming to your town? Let all the team members know and buy a slug of tickets. How about looking for a service project in your community that the WT can work on? And of course, you can't go wrong when you include food. We are trying to implement as many of these ideas as possible this year on our team. I hope these ideas help.
We all go out drinking together. OK, Not really! This actually just came up at our staff meeting. We are planning on doing the after church lunch outings, and having some sort of team fun time. A concert sounds like a great idea!
The greatest way to build community is to share each other's burdens and pray together. We gather as a team 1/2 hr. before our rehearsal and share our prayer requests and what's going on in our lives. As a leader I have to ask the right questions too. This is always a special time for all of us.
