home groups!

One of the biggest blessings of this past year for Molly and I has been the people that we've come to know and love in our home group. We have grown closer with God and experienced tremendous friendship through the men and women in our group.

I believe that people who are in community with other believers grow more in their relationship with God than those who aren't (just like those who workout with a personal trainer usually see more results than those who don't). If you're having a hard time living out your spiritual convictions and commitments, perhaps you need the connection that will keep you on track (for more on this, view Andy Stanley's message entitled "Missing Ingredient").

If you are not in a home group, I'd encourage you to find one. We have a great online locator for these groups here. Some are even brand new groups (Ambrosia, Golden, Huffman, Pace, Sprout, Schroder, and Starley).
