I am so thankful and blessed to be a part of our current community group. What is a community group? It's a smaller gathering of the church body that meets together and does life together during the week. This was a new concept for me when we moved her almost 3 1/2 years ago. It took some time to get use to is, but now I look forward to and thrive on community group nights. Recently our group has grown and it has been amazing to see God at work in our midst. I'm thankful that we love to talk about God, His Word, share struggles, speak truth, learn from each other and just be around each other. I love these people so much and am excited to see what God will continue to do with us in our midst.
So a shout out to our group:
