Life Groups Summer 2012

After Easter we had a wave of new Life Groups start in response to '40 Days in the Word.'  In these six weeks together we gained a greater hunger for the God's Word as we listened to Pastor Rick Warren share various methods of Bible Study.  This also birthed a great variety of 'Micah 6:8 Projects - acts and projects of compassion in our community and beyond.  The ripples from that wave continues as groups continue to reach out and impact our community for Christ. 

While some groups meet during the summer, most take a vacation break and gear up in the Fall.  There will be Life Groups open in September - mixed groups, men's groups and women's groups.  In addition we have started a Celebrate Recovery and anticipate various Life Groups as individuals tackle many life issues together.  We look forward to that time that echos the verse in Acts 2:43, 46 & 47, "A deep sense of awe came over them all,...they worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord's Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity - all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people.  And each day the Lord added to their group those who were being saved."
