Two years ago Kevin’s wife developed pancreatic cancer. Their small group turned out to be—quite literally—a godsend. They prayed together, laughed together, cried together, and journeyed in faith together.
Eugene Peterson, a renowned Presbyterian pastor and author, once said a shocking thing. He said, “No church should be bigger than 250 people.” Well, friends, we are! Peterson went on to say, “Any church that IS needs to find a way to form smaller communities, where people don’t get lost in the crowd.”
This is what we are doing for the Lenten season. We’re forming small groups. Groups of about 10-12 people that will meet for 6 weeks on a day and at a time that fits your schedule, starting the week of March 5. We’ll be studying the book Grounded in Prayer—learning about different ways of praying, and practicing them together. We’ll be having holy conversations—with God and with one another.
