What’s possible because we are a small church

Written by Joel on March 11th, 2011

We have two youth, a brother and sister, who are preparing for baptism this Pentecost. We are presenting Bibles this Sunday as they begin the formation classes. Because we are a small church (about 30 on a Sunday) We are able to invite the members to write a personal message in the presentation bibles – I know that would have been impossible in the 500 member church I grew up in. What a treasure for these youth in the years to come.

Because we are a small church, the entire board of elders and pastor (which we call the spiritual council) will be involved in the formation classes. Along with their parents this still makes for an intimate group of nine! An inter-generational nine at that. What a blessing we have to share the faith in such a personal way!
