This October, our small groups will go through the book “Relationships: A Mess Worth Making.” Pastor Bruce picked this book for our fall small group emphasis because it highlights and informs us that relationships is the tool God uses to help us grow. We need each other. We need others speaking into our lives. We need to speak into the lives of others with the Gospel. This book helps us connect the gospel to our everyday relational experiences.
From the back cover, “In this book you’ll discover that God has the last word on those messy, conflict-ridden relationships. He can use them to make you into someone who can give and receive love–with God and others. Impossible? idealistic? Not really. [The authors] show you how God does it, and how it can happen for you. They help you tackle the stubborn problems that plague many close relationships. They show you the deeper issues that drive our reactions, choices, and behaviors. And they show you how God steps in to help you build relationships….”

FAQs about Small Groups
What do you do in a Small Group?
The groups focus on doing three things: Studying the Bible, Praying for one another, and Enjoying one another’s company.
Will I be asked to answer questions or pray out loud?
Relax! These are safe places for everyone to grow I their spiritual walk. No one will make you do what you are not comfortable doing. It’s just a bunch of flawed people walking together through life.
How often does a Small Group meet and how long does the group time last?
Most groups meet every other week with the average meeting lasting from 1½ to 2 hours.
What about child care?
Each group handles child care in a way that suits that group best. However, we offer the following suggestions: parents can switch off watching the children from week to week, parents share in hiring a baby-sitter or each family hires a baby-sitter for their own children.
