It’s hard to believe it’s been a full year since we first began the process of Life Groups at Holly Hill. But, after just one year of working together on this ministry, we’ve seen some amazing growth. Not only did we see nearly a 30% increase in our Sunday evenings attendance while Life Groups were meeting, but we were able to grow as a family. I can’t count the number of people that have said to me, “I got closer to some people that I never would have otherwise.”
But, more important than the growth in numbers, and our growing closer together was our growth in the Lord. Life Groups are such a unique opportunity – I hope you’ll be sure to take advantage of them this time around, if you didn’t last time. The central focus of each group is the study of God’s Word. A study that will help us reinforce the Sunday morning message in such a way that we can take it home with us, and remember it, and apply it. Just think about how many sermons you’ve heard in your lifetime . . . 100? . . . 500? . . . 1,000? It’s probably a lot. But, how many of those do you really remember? 1? 5? 10? If you remember any at all, it’s probably a pretty small percentage. That’s the best part about Life Groups – we come together to read God’s Word and study more thoroughly the morning sermon’s message, in order to apply it more thoroughly to our lives. You’ll be amazed at how much more of the message you remember from week to week.
So, check out the bulletin board in the foyer, and sign up for the group you’d like to GROW with in the coming months.
