On Wednesday February 22, about 30 people gathered at the MRCC for a Small Group Leader Training Workshop. Marian Lensink came to lead us in the teaching and discussion. She was welcomed by Stephen VanderKlippe who organized the event. With fellowship over pizza and snacks, discussions and sharing, and a few laughs, there was lots to learn. A small group has three main functions – Communion with God, Community with each other, and Mission. Spiritual growth and transformation happens in people and groups as these three practices come together.
Leading a small group can be challenging, but it is well worth it. The MRCC has several groups, of different ages, or geographical area. There is a group for you too! Please contact Pastor Henry (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to join a small group.
