Kerdos (College & 20s Life) Small Groups

Our small groups are growing from 2 to 3. There will be two Monday night groups: one at the Hinkles in south Wheaton, and one at the Brendsels' in Wheaton near Mariano’s. There is also one Thursday night group: at the Rupples' in Winfield. All of them will begin with a shared meal at 6:15, followed by conversation around the Word and prayer beginning around 7:20. These groups will begin meeting the week of Jan 8. I hope your schedule allows you to make it to one.

2018 Women's Retreat

2018 Women's Retreat

LIVES OF LITURGY
Spiritual Disciplines for Our Daily Walk

Please join us as we gather to discover and learn how our Sunday liturgy forms us to walk in a manner worthy of the gospel. 

What we do every Sunday forms how we live the rest of the week.  The practices we take up in our worship service each Sunday are activities that teach us the way in which we walk in a manner worthy of the gospel each and every moment of our day.  

Each Sunday we come, as it says in our Sunday bulletin, to experience “God’s presence and work, hearing his welcome and word, and responding with worship, prayer, and thanksgiving, we find ourselves revealed and renewed as his New Covenant people.”  We then walk out radiant from our time in his presence to “Shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life” (Phil. 2:15-16).

At our ladies’ retreat, three of our women from Grace will be sharing with us how they take up the practices of praise/adoration, confession and pardon, and thanksgiving and seek the Lord's help as they walk by faith in their daily lives.  These and other liturgical habits are what form us as distinctively Christian.  We need support and encouragement from the body to learn and grow these habits to be fruit-bearing believers in the work God has called us to in this world.

On Friday evening (March 9), we will introduce the topic for the weekend, share a casual dinner, participate in a time of worship and prayer, and end the evening with games and snacks for those who would like to stay out later.  

On Saturday (March 10), we will offer breakfast snacks followed by our first session.  Prior to lunch we will have a special craft, or you can just relax and enjoy a time of fellowship.  

After lunch there will be two more sessions along with a big group activity.  But that's not all!  We will be making reservations for dinner at three different restaurants from which you can choose on your registration form to enable you to continue the time of fellowship after the last session ends.  

The sign-up deadline is March 5th.  Please consider inviting a neighbor, family member, or friend, as this would give them an opportunity to hear how corporate church worship connects to the daily life and worship of an individual Christian.
