The Small Church Community Core Team is a wonderful group of people dedicated to gathering and supporting SCCs at Spirit of Christ. Every year Core Team members set aside a weekend to do planning for the upcoming year. This year's planning took place the first weekend of February.
We gathered on Friday night, a bit tired from the week, some just trying to keep up with the myriad events in their personal lives, and all of us worn down by the unprecedented volume of vitriolic election year conversation and the enormous divisions facing our country. Confronted with all these realities, an idea began to emerge as we prayed and shared. It had to do with joy, or rather the lack of joy. If we were feeling beaten down, surely others were as well. The question was raised how could we, in our planning, encourage a return to joy?
So that's our plan for the year. . . to return to joy. We want to invite your SCC to join us on the journey and will be providing you with resources and opportunities throughout the next year to
Return to Joy. Please watch the bulletin, Flocknotes and your inbox. We're going to start practicing joy. Start with the announcement below!!
