Begins Wednesday, September 2
Dinner 6:15 - 6:45 pm by reservation
6:50-8:00PM - Encounter
ENCOUNTER: Gather on Wednesday nights with those who desire to encounter God and one another through conversation and life-sharing. Starting from selected texts in scripture, you’ll hear others’ reflections … and have opportunity to tell your own story. All this will lead to a new Life Group experience early in 2016. Sign up to cluster with others from your worshipping community.
PARENTS: your middle high students will have EPIC from 6-8 pm; younger kids will have children’s ministry as well. Teens can purchase low cost food at EPIC, and children can purchase pizza ($1/per child) in their children’s ministry areas. Plan to sign your teens and kids into their ministry areas at 6 pm and then join in your table group for Encounter at 6:15pm. (For those of you who can’t get here until later… no worries. The teaching and table group discussion doesn’t begin until 6:50 pm.)
