They say that everything is bigger in Texas (and that may be true) and it seems that all Americans believe that bigger is better...but small can be powerful.
In 1 Kings 19, God speaks through the "still small voice". In Matthew 17, Jesus tell us that we only need faith as small as a mustard seed and we can tell the mountains to move. Jesus is born into a small town (Micah 5:2) but He would go on to save the world.
Small isn't bad, in fact small can be powerful.
In just a few weeks we are launching 9 new "small" groups at Six Points Church. In many ways these groups are small (only about 10 people per group, meeting for only 4 weeks, reading a short book of the Bible) and yet I believe that these groups can have HUGE power!
People in these groups (and the the groups that currently exist and are joining this study) will grow in fellowship, grow in Biblical knowledge and can help us grow together in grace. I can't wait to see what friendships might be formed or strengthened and how God uses these small groups to make a big impact in our church and community.
This week is the last Sunday to sign up for one of these groups before they start...so don't miss out on God's big plans for our small groups!
