Although we've been going to the same church for over a year now, maybe close to 2? We had yet to join a small group. The majority of churches that I know of have done away with Sunday school. I shouldn't complain about that, because it makes for a very long Sunday, but sometimes it might be easier to stay late on Sunday morning, than to have to find another night during the week to dedicate to a small group. We ended up finding one during the spring that was early on Sunday night AND had childcare on site! It was perfect! We signed up along with some of our friends, and I couldn't have loved it more. We met some many new people and some will be forever friends! I was sad to say good bye at the last meeting at the park.
