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.”
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
