Fall is inching in upon us, and that means that Community Groups have returned as well. Hurray! Our kickoff day is in two Sundays on August 28th. Obviously, if your group is not meeting on Sundays then the date of your first meeting will be different: Monday the 29th or Wednesday the 31st.
For those of you who are not yet in a community group but want to be; I’d love to help you find the one that best fits your schedule. We presently have 5 groups, 4 of which meet in the homes of other LCC people, and one, which meets Sunday mornings @ 9AM @ Shayne Elementary. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact me if you want to get involved.
This semester (from August till Christmas), we will be reading and interacting with a book, “The Prodigal God” by Tim Keller. Our goal in reading and discussing this book is not simply to fill up our calendar with more stuff to do. We believe that Keller’s book provides the careful reader with a right perspective on a well known story, and consequently, it clearly and simply lays out the teaching of Christ both in the historical and modern context. So, the goal of each community group is to work together at understanding and applying the truths behind this biblical parable to our lives. And all the while, building friendships with each other for support and prayer that will continue to exist outside the structure of Church-planned functions. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions; I’ll be glad to answer them.
