Fall 2018 Small Groups!

This fall we will explore the biblical story of the Israelite’s journey through the Sinai desert as a metaphor for being in an undesired time of transition. After enduring generations of slavery in Egypt, the descendants of Jacob travel through the desert (the land between) toward their new home in Canaan. They crave the food of their former home in Egypt and despise their present environment. They are unable to go back and incapable of moving forward. Their reactions provide insight and guidance on how to respond to God during our own seasons of difficult transition.

The Land Between provides insight for people traveling through undesired and difficult transitions such as unemployment, parents in declining health, post-graduate uncertainty, and failure who are looking for hope, guidance, and encouragement. Such times provide our greatest opportunity for spiritual growth. God desires to meet us in our chaos and emotional upheaval, and intends for us to encounter God’s goodness, provision, hope and guidance.

While it is possible to move through transitions and learn little, they provide our greatest opportunity for spiritual growth. God desires to meet us in our chaos and emotional upheaval, and intends for us to encounter God’s goodness and provision during these upsetting seasons.

Groups will meet approximately every other week for a total of five group sessions.  Find the group that works for you and sign-up at church beginning Sunday, September 9th or email Pastor Sara at swirth@mountcalvary-boulder.org.
