Singles’ Small Group for Career-Minded Thirty- and Forty-somethings
Our group has adults between the ages of 32 – 50. (If you’re over 50, we never card at the door but have started a new new Fifty Somethings small group on Wednesday evenings too!) We tend to focus on studies with DVDs or books that include some great discussion with them. To create community within the group, we meet off-campus on the first Thursday of the month to share a meal, indoor rock climbing, bowling, etc. (Note: To stay in accordance with the United Methodist Book of Discipline all events are alcohol-free.)
Our current study is Rooted by Banning Liebscher. In Rooted, Liebscher takes is to the life of David to show how God expands our root system in the hidden places before leading us to where we all desire to go, the visible world. It was in a field of prayerful devotion, a season of serving, and a cave of community that God prepared David for his crown, the same way God prepares us. Take a look at your own life. Are you embracing God's process, the sometimes painstaking and maddening process? When we can release ourselves to God we will find that we can thrive while He develops us, rather than succumb to discouragement.
Whatever your age or season of life, it takes immense courage to slow down enough to let God grow a root system in your life so that you can bear fruit that remains. You are where you are because God has planted you there. Discover what it looks like to embrace His process so you can do what He has called you to, change the world.
Cost for the book is $11.
