WINTER 2012

Dear Church Family, Another semester of small groups is now upon us and I am so excited to see the variety of opportunities available for you to participate in. I would like to thank each of the small group leaders for volunteering their time and talent to lead these gatherings. Please review this booklet and then sign up for the group or groups that interest you this semester. Joining a small group is a great way to get to know other people in the church family in a casual environment. It is also a great opportunity to grow spiritually and be an encouragement to others. Blessings,

This youth led service will feature extended times of loud and passionate worship followed by teachings from some of our emerging leaders within the youth and young adult ministries. Throughout the year, we will have special guest speakers and musicians and will be held in various locations. Nathanael and Faith Herbert Jordin Brenize
