Many of you know that we attend the church The Crossing and that we are very involved. We moved to CO to be a part of what's going on with this church and we LOVE it! One of the two pillars the church has is Life Groups. Really the only structure we have are Sunday Gatherings and then during the week - life groups. Through these two avenues we live out the Great commission.
Richard leads a life group on Thursday night. The people that attend this group are some of my closest friends since moving to CO. Life group is a place to serve each other, serve the church, and serve the community. A place where you seek counsel, give advice, encourage, help, rebuke, and with fear of sounding cliche "live life together". A place to introduce my community around me to the love of Jesus Christ.
This last weekend we had a fun weekend planned. Most of us made it and it was such a sweet time. We all drove up to Gypsum in the mountains and stayed at a Ranch (owned by the family of a member of our life group). It was truly a wonderful, refreshing time. We got to know each other in better ways and truly enjoy each other's company.
