Your Family Needs You!
I received a text from a sister in Christ this week:
“I very much would love to find a small group where I can find friends. My best friend is moving to… and I’m going to need a female friend.”
You may feel that you don’t need to be a part of a Life Group or small group Bible study. But what about your sister or your brother in Christ?
You Could Be an Answer to Prayer
Many of us are praying for the “impossible,” that not a single Christian here at St. Paul’s and The Bridge is facing the joys and challenges of life alone. We are praying that God would use the Family Church effort to fulfill his promise that he “sets the lonely in families” (Psalm 68:6).
Could you be an answer to these prayers? Could you be a part of a small group or could you be a Life Group host?
What Does a Life Group Host Do?
Hosting isn’t rocket science! It is as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4.
- Pick a night for the group and stay consistent.
- Prepare enough seats for the group (either consistently in your home or rotate locations among the group)
- Have a firm start and end time
- Have snacks (a cold glass of water or more elaborate snacks)
Contact Pastor Pete for more information about being a group host.
How Do Groups Form? GroupLink
New Life Groups will be formed at the GroupLink sessions on Thursday, September 13 and/or Sunday, September 16 at 6:30 pm. We’ll explain what a small group is like, provide snacks and starter questions so that you can get to know others present at GroupLink. By the end of the evening, you’ll have found a group of people with whom you feel comfortable.
At the close of GroupLink, the new groups will have a short Growth Group meeting to plan the next time that they will get together.
Contact Pastor Pete to register for GroupLink (Thursday Sept 13 and/or Sunday Sept. 16)
