September 15, 2014 is the kick-off week for our small group ministry for the Fall! I can hardly wait to see how God draws people together. People sitting in circles are going to experience life changing, rich fellowship. There will be true individual spiritual growth by our congregation as we fulfill The New Testament “one anothers” as we share our supply of God’s life in us with each other.
At times an unspoken reason for not joining a small group is a bad feeling produced by a previous negative relationship. We’re afraid to be in a place of vulnerability again. A public worship service does not expose our hurts or us. For that reason we can go to church but we’re not really congregating. We might feel like we’ve fulfilled our responsibility but we leave unchanged, no transformation occurs.
