Happy 4th! An Opportunity for Celebration and Connection

As we celebrate our country's birthday this week, the 4th of July provided a great opportunity to connect with neighbors and friends. Please pray for Community Groups and Congregations around the city, that they may be welcoming to friends and neighbors and that the sweetness of the gospel would be evident in their gatherings.

Our CTK community group has been an essential part of our lives in supporting us, encouraging us, and challenging us on how we think about our neighbors. Our group talks a lot about how to reach our neighbors, and strategies for doing so in an authentic way. 

Our community group also tries to reach our various neighborhoods by rotating through hosting gatherings. In addition to our Fourth of July party, one family hosts a Halloween party and another family has hosted a backyard Bible club among other events. For each of these events, the host invites both their neighbors and our community group. During these times together, we have been able to deepen friendships with our neighbors and also provide an opportunity for our neighbors to interact with Christians.
