Small Group Update.

Last night we had our first meeting with our small group. If you don't know how we got into this small group read this. We met at Max and Erma's for dinner with the other couples and they are so sweet, friendly, and kind. They are young, happily married people like us and we have a lot in common. There was never a lull in conversation because the conversation just flowed naturally, and when the other couples asked for ranch with their fries I knew it was meant to be.

After dinner we went to church together. It was cute because they had us sit in the middle so as not to feel left out. We talked all the way to the start of the service, and then afterwards we were in the lobby talking so more. We arranged for our next small group meeting, the Wednesday after Thanksgiving, and found out we would be studying 1 Peter. Overall, it was a very successful night and we are looking forward to seeing them again soon.
