I used to belong to a lifegroup, that was actually what really drew me into joining Metro. Sara & Dean were our leaders, we met at Jim and Tonya's house. Then I lead a lifegroup, that was a lot more work than I had time for, it was great, but a lot of work!
Last night I attended 'The Card's' lifegroup. I have been wanting to go but a lot of times I am just way too tired to go. They eat at their lifegroup, and sometimes I don't prepare enough to show up (and you know I am not showing up empty handed).
I have to tell you, in the last month, that was probably in my top two best times I've had! That sounds nuts, people who don't live Jesus probably wouldn't understand. I felt welcome from the moment I got there, and really didn't want to leave but I had to go get Phyllis.
I can't think of one extra-ordinary thing that made it great, well, one thing... Jesus was there.
1 Corin 1:9 God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.
