After almost 11 years of helping students connect life-on-life in small groups and raising up both adult and student small group leaders, last night my wife and I joyously open up our home and welcomed other families in for our first night of small group! With one exception (our first church) we have served in churches that were not small group oriented, so we found ourselves building community into the fabric of our volunteer teams, i.e. they were our small groups. This is the first time we have actually reached out and started a small group outside of our work and volunteer team relationships. We had a wonderful meal together and enjoyed some good “get-to-know-one-another” conversation. We’re super excited about what God is going to do as we begin to share life together.
How YOU Can Help Meet a Huge Need!
When we approached our small group department, it was simply to find out about joining a small group. We were instantly asked to consider hosting a group as there was a shortage of small groups. In fact, there is a waiting list of people trying to get into small groups – especially small groups that are “family-friendly”, i.e. welcome children. If you go to Southwest Community Church and would be interested in hosting and/or leading a small group, please click here to contact the church and let them know of your willingness to help meet this need.
