Small Group #7 – Facing Human Trafficking in Our Midst

img_4854

As our Small Groups Sign-Up’s get started this fall, we wanted to tell you about a few of the options. Here are a few words from Andrew & Christine Jones, leaders of Small Group #7

Is this a depressing small group topic or what? Human Trafficking in Our Midst

It is easy to understand that human trafficking happens across the globe.  But it is hard to hear that it also happens across the street.  This fall, our small group will focus on the trafficking that is happening in our area. Using prayer, data, and real people’s stories, we will seek to understand what is really going on and how, as Christians, we feel led to respond. It’s a frightening, deeply disturbing topic, yes, but we’ll unpack it in a safe, relaxed atmosphere.  Maybe even some homemade snacks & wine to take the edge off?

The assumption is that we will learn together so no base knowledge is necessary.  We will meditate on Isaiah 58 and focus on what God wants for this world, knowing that it – and we – are broken until Jesus comes again.

“Is not this the fast that I choose:

    to loose the bonds of wickedness,

    to undo the straps of the yoke,

to let the oppressed go free,

    and to break every yoke?

Is it not to share your bread with the hungry

    and bring the homeless poor into your house;

when you see the naked, to cover him,

    and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?

Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,

    and your healing shall spring up speedily;

your righteousness shall go before you;

    the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.”

-Isaiah 58:6-8

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!  It’s a new venture for us and we’d love to have you along for the ride.  – Christine & Andrew Jones

Small Group #26 – Healing Shame

image1

As Small Groups Sign-Up’s get started this fall, we wanted to tell you about a few of the options. Here are a few words from Christine Wilson, one of the leaders of Small Group #26

Sandra Sellmer-Kersten of Elijah House says that guilt is a gift of God that draws us to the cross and keeps us on the right path, while shame is a tool of Satan that keeps us from walking in dignity and fulfilling God’s destiny for us. The strongholds of shame can be difficult to recognize, but the roots of shame run deep and get planted in many ways. These roots of shame produce bitter fruits and can leave us feeling humiliated, desolate, and defeated.

Louise Brooks and I will be hosting a women’s small group this trimester that walks through a curriculum from Elijah House called “Healing Shame,” together with related materials and activities (e.g., “Praying in Color”). We’ll meet at Louise’s house in Arlington from 7:30 to 9 pm on Thursday evenings. If you fear rejection or being vulnerable, if you are uncomfortable with expressing emotions or depending on others, or if you struggle with perfectionism (hello, Arlingtonians!), compulsive behavior, or feelings of worthlessness, this small group could be right for you. This curriculum is also good for those who do prayer at the rail with parishioners.

Join us, experience healing, and walk into the destiny that God has planned for you.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV).
