Small Groups are kicking off the fall season this week! Our theme this year, “What’s Your Story?”, will encourage us to explore how each of our stories is being written by God. In addition, Pastor Ed is preaching through the same theme this fall. As we discover how God is telling His bigger story through our lives, we gain a clearer sense of purpose. We can begin to live out our passions and others are drawn into the story--the story God is continually writing.
God's writing a great story in our group! We have fun hanging out together: cooking out, eating brownies, eating chips (do you sense a theme?!). We also have some really nerdy math and science people who laugh at themselves! And we have cared for each other, struggled with difficult issues, prayed for each other through ups and downs, served together and studied the Bible together. We also have young kids in our group, so it's awesome to hear a child pray for a family member or friend or to see a 4-year-old girl's eyes light up and her body dance as we have conversations about Jesus or Elsa and Anna from Frozen or to hear a baby's belly laugh as someone in the group plays with him. The kids' energy permeates and makes us all smile! The people in this group are now part of my life and I love that they are part of my story.
