Friends, Small Group Registration opened on Sunday and over 50 people have already signed up. As my friend Dan Moriarity used to say as he walked across Yates Field from the caf, ‘Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-haw!’
Erin dropped a great invitation on us Sunday– to get plugged in to a smaller community that will wrestle with Scripture, with faithfulness, with letting Jesus lead… You’ll notice some of the groups are doing special topics (Cindy D and Erica C looking at the Sermon on the Mount, the Janis’ digging in to one of the most formational books I’ve ever read [you’ll hear echoes of it in almost every sermon I preach]). But most everyone else is wrestling with the Scripture I preach on Sunday. This is THE BEST way to get Scripture IN you– listen to it then talk it out with friends.
We follow a trimester system that allows ‘just enough’ commitment. Registration is open for a month, then all of the groups close until the end of the trimester. In March, you are done! You can sign up again or try a different one. If you miss TriOne, the next trimester begins in mid-April.
But don’t miss TriOne! Make some friends. Lock in one evening a week to figuring out Jesus and what He wants from you. If you have a favorite small group memory from 2009, throw it up there in the comments section. It all starts the week of January 17th.
