Session Update

The Session invites you to be praying with us for the ongoing development of biblical community in our congregation this fall. While we are excited about new small groups forming, Connect Communities starting, Jobs for Life class getting underway, and much more, we also know that no amount of planning or strategy will be what controls our “success” as a church on God’s mission in this community. For that, we are utterly dependent upon the work of God’s Spirit among us, so please pray with us that we will lock arms with each other firmly and love our neighbors deeply.

As part of our prayerful and intentional development of biblical community, please join with us in a Connect Community starting September 9. One of the reasons we as a Session are particularly looking forward to these communities is that they will be places where we can connect with you more consistently and shepherd you more faithfully. There are multiple elders on the leadership team of each community for that very purpose, and we are eager to get to know each of you better as we share life together around God’s Word.

Don’t forget that when these Connect Communities begin on September 9, we will also adjust our Sunday morning schedule so that our prayer gathering is at 8:45am, our worship service is at 9:30, and our Connect Hour is at 11:00. Worship is a great need for each of us personally and a high priority for us as a church, so please make plans to be prepared at 9:30 on Sundays and let us know if we can help as you and your family make adjustments for this schedule. If you have any questions about these plans, please contact any of us personally or all of us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). If this is the first you are hearing about plans for this fall, you can read more in the letter and Q&A document posted at southwood.org.
