More 40 Days of Community

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I've updated my last post (8/26) to include stuff that has recently been added to the calendar during the 40 Days Campaign, as well as more small groups that have been started and other information. Be sure to check it out if you have any 40 Days questions. Additionally, here are some things you might want to know:

  • So many of you signed up to be in groups that we ran out of books, signing all of you up! Praise the Lord! We do have more books on the way. So if you didn't get yours, don't worry! There will be one for you on Sunday, so that you'll be able to start right out on Day 1 with everybody else.
  • We had 18 new people sign up for small groups today, bringing the total to 72, which accounts for 82% of the adults in our church. That's obviously fantastic news, but we're still short of our goal of 100% participation. If you know of someone who's not in a group, invite them to come be part of yours!
  • If you're not in a group, you can start your own, if you're a member of the church. Just grab a couple friends (they don't even have to be part of our church!) and let us know. We'll get you all the materials you need--VHS tapes with small group lessons, books, & a service project list.
  • We have added a new edition of the Journey 101 Class, which is our church membership class, to the 40 Days of Community campaign. If this is all about coming together as a community, what better way to do that than to have new people "officially" join the community?! The class will meet on September 30 & October 7 from 4:00-6:30pm. The cost will be $15 per person, which includes materials and dinner. If you want to sign up for the class, you can email me.

I'm really enthusiastic about this campaign. I know that God wants to do great things among us, and I'm excited to see the response so far. Let's keep praying for 100% participation, and devote ourselves fully for these 40 days. Let's Get 1t Together!
