Subject: Welcome to our Married Growth Group!


Welcome to our Married Growth Group! Just wanted to drop a quick note to say "Hi" and introduce myself. My name is <<NAME>>, and I'll be leading our group. I'm excited to get to know you over the next few months.

Our group will meet <<inside at my home or at Woodstock City in a small group room>>. The first meeting will be at _________________ (provide your address) at <<TIME>> on <<DAY>>.

***Important: Because this is a different kind of group, we want to make sure you know what you are signing up for. Would you take 90 seconds to watch this video ( about what to expect from Growth Group. Also, attendance at the first meeting is required. If for some reason you can't be at the first group meeting, please let me know ASAP so we can hold your spot in the group. 

If you have children who need childcare, go ahead and schedule your babysitter. Childcare will not be available. At our first meeting, we’ll talk about how to request a reimbursement using the childcare supplement provided by Woodstock City Church for all of our group meetings.

Look for another email from me soon where we'll meet all of our group members via email before we meet in person at our group kickoff! Looking forward to meeting you!


Send: When your group is full OR 3 days prior to your group launching. Please CC (not BCC) all group members so they can “Reply all” to introduce themselves.

Subject: Our First Married Growth Group Meeting


I wanted to send a quick welcome to everyone in our group. We hope this will be a place where we experience authentic community and spiritual growth. We’ll talk more about that next week!

We’ll meet one another for the first time next week to kick off our group at << inside at my home or at Woodstock City Church>>. The first meeting will be at _________________ (provide your address) at <<TIME>> on <<DAY>>. This meeting is a great way for us to connect and begin our first study together.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already, please introduce yourself to the rest of the group!

<<Leaders, put your info here:>>

Name: Alysia Dicks

A little about me: When people ask where I’m from, I’m never sure how to answer. My dad’s job relocated us every few years so I’ve lived in Decatur, GA, Seattle, WA, Tampa, FL, Waynesboro, GA, and Jupiter, FL. After graduating from the University of Georgia, I moved to Atlanta, met my husband, Tony, moved to Woodstock, and have lived here ever since. Our two children, Mary Beth (20) and Davis (18), have a completely different answer to the question “Where are you from?” since they’ve lived in Woodstock their entire life.

I live near: Sequoyah High School

My dream vacation: My bucket list vacation is to spend a month in Italy. I want to see and experience it all so a week or two just won’t be enough!

This fall I'm looking forward to: Becoming an empty nester!
