Summer is awesome! There is something refreshing about sunshine, grilling out, random trips to get ice cream or snow cones, picnics, parks and kids playing in the backyard. Summertime just feels good!
But do you know what makes summer even better? People! Playing in the sunshine, grilling burgers, eating snow cones, hanging out in the park… all of it is better when we do it with friends!
Last summer we gathered for the first time as a campus in Georgetown for a Launch Night. Almost seventy people gathered to join up with a Life Group. The goal was simply to connect for the summer so we would have a core group of people who were already connected to one another before our campus launched.
There was no requirement for these groups continue beyond the summertime. But they did! Almost all of the groups that launched last June developed such great friendships that they are still meeting today! Each and every person in those groups would tell you that life is just better with other people by your side.
We want everyone who calls Southland their church home to know the same kind of joy and fulfillment. That’s why we’re gearing up for another launch of Summer Groups on Sunday, June 26 at 4:00pm at Royal Spring Park! These groups are specifically designed for short-term summertime fun; there is no commitment beyond this five-week launch phase.
If you are not yet connected to a Life Group at Southland, plan to join us with your family on June 26. We’ll have pizza in the park, and we’ll help you find a group you feel comfortable with. We’ve got some great games and activities planned over the course of the summer for you to enjoy together, so there really is no better time to take the first step towards doing life in community! And if you’re worried that your vacation plans will make it hard to “commit” to anything for five weeks… just stop worrying! Your group will totally understand!
And here’s the thing: if you are in an existing Life Group, your whole group can join in the fun with all the other Summer Groups! Just register your group and come join us in the park on June 26!
