Growing smaller and bigger at same time.
That is a phrase Rick Warren, pastor at Saddleback church, has said for years... The idea is that churches should grow larger as they reach people, and then also grow smaller as they build connections among the people through small groups. In August we will be doing a short series called Smallville to show the importance of people connecting together in small groups... Our small groups are designed to help our congregation meet new people, make friends, grow in their faith, and have fun... It's not designed to be an intimate space, but simply a social one... a safe place to grow... more about that later... My son Jeremy shot and post edited the video... He is a blessing.
