My church, National Community Church, is trying something new this summer with our small group system. For six weeks, all small groups will be doing the same sermon-based curriculum. As NCCers like to say, “Everything is an experiment.” Each group will be based on a neighborhood – geographical location, workplace, or special interest – we’re calling it A18: Neighborhoods (based on Acts 1:8).
I will be leading a small group – conveniently called Aspiring Gourmets 🙂 – with my dear friend Jenn (creator of the amazing spinach and artichoke dip) based on one of my favorite hobbies, cooking! We will be cooking and eating dinner together before delving into the bible study. I have wanted to do some type of cooking group for some time and I felt like now is as good a time as any to try. We will be using this blog to post recipes and information about the group, which will be starting in June.
Stay tuned for more info, and let me know if you’re interested in joining! In the meantime, check out this post from NCC discipleship pastor Heather Zempel about the A18 experiment, or visit the website.
