Small Group Celebration!

disciples-path

Join us next Friday evening, November 13, at 7pm, for dessert and coffee (and other beverages) as we celebrate the conclusion of our church-wide study and message series, “A Disciple’s Path.”

We had a great turn out at the opening celebration, and if you attended that, we’d love for you to invite a friend this time! During our time together we will have an “open-mic” time of testimony sharing regarding your experiences through small groups and diving deeper into what it means to follow the disciple’s path through our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.

We will also share information about our upcoming Advent message series and group experience entitled, “Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected.”

Please RSVP to Joyce Munt in the church office by Wednesday, November 11, and let us know how many folks you’ll be bringing with you!

Participants will develop spiritual practices, discover their unique gifts, and become engaged in ministry that brings transformation in their own lives, the lives of others, and the world.
