Life Groups

For the past three years, we’ve been part of a Life Group at church. Mostly it’s adults, gathering together on Sunday evenings for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer. These people have become trusted friends and mentors to Ed & I. When we moved, they all were there, helping. Whenever we need anything, the members of our Life Group are there. Often in the summer we have “Family Life Groups” which involves the day at the lake, tubing, skiing, swimming, eating, and laughing. Other “Family Life Groups” have involved all the adults doing the chit-chatting and all the kids doing things like playing Capture the Flag in the dark near a ditch…which can make the moms of the little ones nervous, but it’s always fun and it’s always a blessing.

A couple members of our Life Groups recently attended a benefit auction together and purchased a “Hayride & Katz Koffee” night for our group. One evening (before the snow & before the church program…I have my blog posts slightly out of order here) we all gathered for a pizza dinner and then a fun hayride through town to look at Christmas lights, followed by hot cocoa, tea, and coffee at a local coffeeshop/bookstore called Katz Koffee. It wasn’t easy to find a date when all six families were available, but we managed and we had a great time! Thanks Steiger’s and Korthuis’ for the fun Family Life Group event!

I changed this one to black & white because the flash did something really weird and we looked like we had jaundice.
