through Sticky Groups at St. Luke!
“Christ distributes courage through community; he dissipates doubts through fellowship.” —Max Lucado
Welcome Back to WNT: Fall 2016
Beginning Wednesday, September 7th
St. Luke offers many opportunities to have community with people like you...a community of believers. If you are not involved in a small group (sticky group), take this opportunity to begin and join a group. What is a sticky group? Sticky Groups are small groups which offer community, fellowship, accountability and spiritual growth. Sticky Groups meet weekly and are provided with a list of questions and scriptures prepared by the pastor based on the sermon and scripture from the previous Sunday.
