Small Group Kickoff

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. – Acts 2:42 (NIV)

Small group involvement is Cornerstone’s primary means of building deep relationships that lead to genuine community. I cannot exhort you enough to get plugged into a small group. Sunday mornings are significant as we gather as a larger body to worship together. Coming to the Lord’s Table on the first Sunday of each month points us to our communion with Christ and each other. But experiencing that communion can’t genuinely happen without relationships with each other that go beyond the brief conversations that we have with each other in a Sunday morning worship setting. This is why small groups are so vitally important in the life of a healthy church and of the healthy churchman.

The week of September 13 we will kick off all new small groups that will take us through the school year. We ask that you consider committing yourself to one of these. Commitment involvements showing up each meeting time, unless providentially hindered, that you might pray, study the Scriptures, and share lives with each other. Time is essential to allowing relationships that go beyond the surface to develop. It is in small groups that we find our front line of care when in need (and when able to give).

Small groups vary in format, location, and frequency of meeting. Those that will begin are listed below:

Saugier: Friday nights (7-9) in Pin Oak subdivision. Prayer/Fellowship/Discussion of the book, Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Ted Tripp.

Jorgensen/Tucker: Sundays following worship in West Cinco Ranch. Lunch/Fellowship/Discussion of Sermon text and other relevant topics of interest.

Harper/Sanger: Sunday nights (5-7) in Cinco Ranch (near Grand Parkway and Cinco Ranch Blvd). Dinner/Fellowship/Prayer/Discussion of Sermon and other relevant topics of interest. The format of this group will vary from the others in that couples will meet the first Sunday, women only the second Sunday, men only the third Sunday, and families with children on the fourth Sunday.

Tassin: Wednesday nights (7-9) in Green Trails. Fellowship/Prayer/Discussion of Sermon text and other relevant topics of interest.

Wilkins: Sunday nights (5:30-7:30) in West Katy (near Peterson Rd and Hwy 90). Dinner/Fellowship/Discussion/Prayer. Discussion topics to be decided.

Cover: Wednesday nights (7-9) in Spring Branch. Desert/Fellowship/Prayer/Discussion. Discussion topics to be decided.

Please be in prayer for each of these groups as they kick-off and finding one for your family. Remember, we are “members of one another” as Paul reminds us in Ephesians 4 and small groups are an excellent way to proactively work that out.

Grace in Christ,
Carter
