1979, ancient history for many of you, a song by Sister Sledge hit it #1 on the R & B charts titled, "We Are Family." It's a little disco ditty that I'm not going to bother to bore you with, but the title of the song is accurate when we apply it to our relationships with other Christians in the church. We are family!
A family will eat together (i.e. The Gathering), go on trips together (i.e. Harbor Park), head out for a little rest and relaxation (i.e. Resolved Retreat), and as with any family from time to time is becomes necessary to have a little convo and talk about where we are, have been, and where we're going in the future. For us, as a Resolved Ministry, it's that time for us to gather together, sit down around some tables and have a little chat about the future. Personally I'm thrilled that we'll be together again next week and I hope that you are too.
To help you prepare yourself for next week I've listed the pertinent information for you below. Go ahead and take a look!
1) Date: Friday, September 26th
2) Time: 7:30 pm (come a little early to hang out and grab a table)
3) Who's It For: Young Adults (singles and young marrieds of SGC)
4) Why should you come: Because you should!
5) What should you bring: yourself...seriously...come!
With that out of the way I want to let you know a few details of what we'll be talking about. The first thing is a few months ago I promised that we'd bring more definition to what Resolved is and isn't. Well, that's going to happen on September 26th, so come.
Secondly, we're going to be talking about goals that we have for Resolved for the coming year. With that being said, this is probably a good idea to view this meeting more like a Resolved Family Meeting. This means that if you've been coming to Resolved, even if you just started to over the summer, please come, but we are NOT encouraging everyone to bring guests to this meeting. You'll understand more fully next week, but for now, just trust me - :).
Lastly, we're going to introduce our next message series as well as two ways in which we're going to seek to maximize our Resolved meetings outside of our monthly context. Later on today I'll post one of the ways that the ladies will have (sorry guys...just for the ladies). You'll hear about other ways at the meeting.
Please spread the word to others in Resolved. I look forward to seeing you next week!
