In early July we started to prepare for a spiritual journey for the fall called, “not a fan.” We are off to a great start with 40 host/facilitators who have dedicated their time and abilities to provide a small group experience during this spiritual journey. What does that mean for you? That means you have 40 opportunities to join a small group using the materials of “not a fan.” Now during the month of September it becomes your privilege to join a six-week small group.
Let me share with you a couple reasons why you should join a small group. First, a small group is a great opportunity to meet new people, strengthen relationships and begin to build lifetime friends. The Christian faith is a relational faith. God never expected you, nor did He ever design you, to live out your faith apart from others. Secondly, a small group gives you a place to belong and a sense of community that we all desire. You are designed to be in a community of relationships. Where people know one another, pray for one another, encourage one another and serve one another. This Sunday I strongly encourage you to go out into the lobby and sign up to be a part of a small group. If you cannot be with us Sunday and would like to join a small group, there will still be opportunities to do so until October 5.
Hope to see you Sunday at the place to belong ,place to become.

I am so thankful for you and people like you who believe in the mission of the church of making disciples. Your faith and vision to see the need of expanding facilities in order to expand Christ’s ministry is obvious.
