Seis de Mayo was AMAZING!!!
We’re so thankful that so many people came out to Lake Poway all for the purpose of enjoying fun and community! The mixture of tacos and Rumba Cha Cha was the perfect cocktail for a hot Sunday afternoon, right?
After the party, we were asked by our mentor (in classic mentor status) “What was the purpose for the event?” — It was initially scary – almost like your dad asking, “Now why did you think this was a good idea?” (after you did something).
But we recovered quickly because we knew our purpose (and our mentor shared our enthusiasm for it):
We wanted to create a space for people to experience joy in community. We wanted to create a moment in time where everyone felt that they belonged. We wanted to create a shared experience of people leaning into life – and we had a ridiculously good time in the process!
We pray that’s what all of you deeply felt… joy, belonging, and great community. We believe that was all a great gift from God!
STAY TUNED… A video of the goodness will be coming out in the near future!
You can check out some of what we captured on our Facebook page
In the mean time, read below because we are REALLY excited about small groups and our upcoming Wine&Words event, “You Have Heard It Said”…
Uncommon [small groups]
All of us are on a journey in our faith. Sometimes that journey feels like a grand adventure, and sometimes it feels like wandering in the wilderness. And what we’ve come to know is that – no matter where you find yourself on the journey – having people with you on the path makes all the difference. People who know you, love you, and can enter the adventure or the wandering with you. Read on to see what we will be covering…
For our first small group season, we will be going through a series called Starting Point from Andy Stanley discussing the “starting points” of faith.
Imagine that 😉
Here’s a little descriptor from their materials to get you excited:
Everything has a beginning. Every person, every idea, every journey starts somewhere. Whether it’s one small step in a new direction or a major event, from that point forward nothing is ever the same.
It’s not always comfortable. It’s not always easy. But it’s a start.
Cause we are!
Uncommon small groups are gonna be… uncommon. They will be on Wednesday nights (unless there’s a group that needs to meet on another night) and there is going to be a rhythm to the six weeks that will seem new to some. But we think it will especially allow families to get the most out of the content without breaking the bank with baby-sitters every week.
Check this sched…
May 23rd – Families all together
May 30th – Couples (you’ll need a sitter for this week)
June 6th – Just the Dudes
June 13th – Just the Gals
June 20th – Couples (will need sitter)
June 27th – Families all together/Wednesdays at the Park launch
Cool huh? You’ll see more about this in the coming weeks. But if you’re interested in small groups, NOW is the time to sign up. Just clickety-click the button below to sign up!JOIN A SMALL GROUP
wine & words
We’re so excited to invite you to the next adventure with uncommon [good]… A night of wine & words called:
you have heard it said…
[reclaiming] truths about faith, Jesus, and being Human.
June 3rd, 6:30 PM
Often, Jesus said things like, “you have heard it said… but I tell you…”, right before He turned a commonly held idea upside down.
Faith. Community. Religion. Spirituality. Worship. Church.
For many of us, these words come loaded with certain ideas and maybe even some baggage. In some ways, these words and ideas have lost their true meaning.
We think it’s time to reclaim them…
So let’s have a convesation together. And since everything is better with wine and charcuterie, let’s do it at Espinosa Winery.RSVP
You are loved and valued!
Your uncommon [team]
