Hello Faith Family of ECBC,
As Community Groups get underway I want to give you a quick report on how it is going and how God is using CGs to impact lives.
We had over 200 new folks join Community Groups as a result of LinkNight September 14. That brings our total involvement in Community Groups to over 700 people meeting in 60 Community Groups throughout the Charleston area.
If you are not involved and would like to be, you can join a group anytime throughout the year by going to our website.
Here is a note from a CG member that expresses the difference CGs make in our lives. (shared with permission however names are changed)
We are lifting up prayers for you today Artemis! let us know what the doctors say-- I am studying 1 Thessalonians this fall and this verse reminded me of your leadership in our community group: "encouraging, comforting and urging us to live lives worthy of God, who calls us into His kingdom and glory" 1 Thes. 2:12.
Thank you for reaching out at Link Night last fall and inviting Cletus and me to join your group. We had used every excuse in the book to not join a community group and when we were finally empty nesters , we ran out of excuses. But that didn't stop us from agreeing that we would not join a group unless it met on Thursday nights and had "cool" people-- ( I can't believe I am confessing this) We walked into the gym at Link night and there you were, immediately inviting us into your group. We are both humbled and grateful that you and Lydia not only share the gospel with us, but your lives as well (Thes. 2:8). I agree with you that we have the best group at ECBC! We appreciate your leadership so much.
Thank you for the privilege it is to serve in this Church and witness such strong desire to honor Christ and impact the world!
Go out there and give’m heaven!
