Life Is Better In Groups

Life Is Better In Groups

Last year about this time, we kicked of a series called Freeway and encouraged everyone to participate in a small group during the series. We had great feedback from folks about small groups. In fact, one of our new small groups kept meeting all year long!

Many of you have been asking about joining an ongoing small group. So, here we go!

This Sunday, September 9 at 6:00 pm, Pastor Joanie and I are hosting a small group kickoff gathering at Hood. Anyone and everyone is invited. Maybe you already are part of a women’s circle or men’s group, but you want more! Maybe your schedule last year kept you from being part of a small group. Maybe you are just ready for a deeper dive into your spiritual life. Wherever you are, I hope you will join us on Sunday at 6:00 pm.

We will gather on the second floor of the church in the newly carpeted Parlor and foyer. There will be beverages (coffee, tea, sodas) and treats to eat. Come with an open heart and your calendar and we’ll put together small groups for the Fall/Winter.

Don’t just dismiss this idea thinking this is not for you! Even if you are already in a women’s circle, a Sunday School class, or prayer group, come on out and enjoy fellowship Sunday evening…we may even sing a couple old gospel songs for fun! You’ll be glad you came…cause life is better in groups!
