Small group

Tonight was the first night of this school year’s small group.  The teenagers (all 9th – 11th graders) started filing in around 6:45.  It was so good to be back in the small group setting, it’s so much easier to minister to them and talk with them in a home setting.  During the summer, small groups don’t meet and so many of them are off on vacations, spending time with family in other states, or they just don’t go to church.

Last school year we had an average of about 15 – 20 kids that came each week, but things have been switched around and we now have a smaller group.  I’m going to miss the ones who are no longer with us, but I’m so excited to be back with the ones who remain.

Tonight we just hung out, ate our big hamburgers, chocolate chip cake, and played volleyball.   But, immediately, I was able to minister to a few girls.  It was almost as if they were waiting to return just so we could talk.

I know that God has some great things in store for this year and I’m praying that our students will be challenged into a deeper walk with Christ.  They already are a great group of kids, but I know that God has so much he wants to do in and through them.
