I went to my first small group meeting this morning for new thru 30. We are reading through the New Testament in 30 days as a church, and 4 week small groups were offered to share the experience with other church members.
I have been having a hard time getting plugged into a small group that worked with my schedule. I LOVED my Wednesday night small group, and all of the ladies in it, and I still love running into them and squeezing them tight. It was just the day and time that didn't wind up working out for me. Then along comes this small group. Tuesday mornings at 10am.....AND I can bring my son! PERFECT!!! He has a play date, and I can go to small group without worrying if my husband has to work that night ( if I attended a night group), or if he just came off a 12 hour overnight shift and he won't be awake to watch Alex for me. Tuesdays are a free day for us, so we are in no rush.
I really enjoyed it. The women were great. It seems I will have a lot or have had a lot in common with them, and my friend Pat is in the group, and I didn't even know it! So that anxiety of walking in and not knowing anyone was gone in an instant! Once again...Perfect!
Even better, they said we are all welcome to join their regular weekly small group after the 4 week commitment is over, which is at the same time, same day, same scenario with my son. I couldn't have asked for a better fit. I'm so excited! Off to read the rest of Mark, James, and Galatians!!
