I have been attending several of our 2:42 groups at COTHA over the last several weeks. I have been blessed to see the number of people who are involved, the level of connectedness that people have with one another, and the level of spiritual maturity that is being sought. I have also eaten very well at many of these groups!
Last night I attended the Russells and left knowing that I had experienced God. It was wonderful to be with people who truly sought the truth of God's Word. I was also thrilled to see two of our newest members at the gathering!
I know that not all of the people at COTHA are part of a 2:42 group. Sometimes schedules just simply don't allow for some people's participation. But having witnessed how great these groups are, I want to encourage you to at least visit one or more of these groups. You can go to our website and see where and when these groups meet or call Karen Pettit in the office.
I felt strongly that God is calling us to broaden this ministry and offer even more 2:42 groups. To do so means we will have to raise up, train and support new leaders. I ask all of you who are reading this to prayerfully consider whether or not God is calling you into leadership or perhaps just calling you to be a member of an existing or new 2:42 group.
