An Invitation to Gather

Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

Acts 2:46-47

With great joy we invite you to Gather beginning August 6th at our shop, Picture This!

All are welcome each Tuesday in August at 12 noon (more or less depending on your lunch hour). Come. Sit at the table and enjoy a meal prepared for you.

Our conversations will be a sharing, a time set apart to learn from each other about how God calls us to live His Word.

Stacy says:

I was a bit surprised when she said, “I have an idea for August.”

Surprised because as we approached summer we agreed to take a rest. Not a do nothing rest, an intentional rest. Time set apart for listening and writing and creating our fall Bible study.

As we traveled home from a writer’s conference this weekend, we shared our hearts about her August idea. As I scribbled notes during our conversation I realized God’s call to rest did a work in us we weren’t expecting. Not only is our fall study on the verge of completion, but a time to Gather in August is in the works too.

It reminds me. God does not hold back nor give sparingly. He is over the top, more than we can ever imagine, beyond our expectation. The tiniest step towards Him opens Holy flood gates and we are blessed. Blessed with what we need and abundantly more. The joy of it fills my soul.

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

2Corinthians 9:8

For those who can’t come in person, we will share our time together here on the blog. We encourage you to find a few friends to Gather with for fellowship. Take the time to share a meal and the way God is working in your life through His Word.

Can’t wait to see you for lunch in August!
