A few notes...The first hour will be a potluck, the second hour will be for sharing and praying for one another. Bring a sweater since we have a fire pit in the back that overlooks the golf course and will be great for interacting. We hope to have kids join us at least 1x/month. Also, since this group is designed to be community-based, it's wonderful if there are families in the community that you want to invite from other churches in the area. Together we're better and will shine brighter for the Kingdom. :-)

We also want to put together protocol which will be set in place to protect the homeowner, property management, as well as the people themselves. Our initial meeting will be on September 7th at 3:00pm at Starbucks (1228 Camden Ave). This will a time to brainstorm and draw out a strategic plan of how to implement this.
