Small Groups Lent 2017

09 Apr

Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.  (Acts 2:46-47)

Following the example of the early church, the SMSV community participated in a six week small groups journey entitled, “Building Relationships In Christ.”  This booklet was written by servants of SMSV to meet the need for an Orthodox Lenten curriculum. Each chapter’s focus corresponded to the Sunday gospel.   Over 100 people took part in this small group experience. Many participants and hosts grew spiritually and grew closer to one another. A highlight was the new friendships that were formed as many people new to the church community joined small groups and fostered deeper relationships.  We give God the glory for this beautiful experience.
