Leaders: Justin + Megan Bell
Stepfamily life is like making a smoothie. We throw a bunch of complex ingredients into the blender, press the button, and experience the chaos. When we add scripture to our blender, we take our finger off the button and allow God to do the mixing. What we see and hear as chaos is the Master Chef creating a drink with a richer flavor than any single ingredient could achieve on our own. This fall, fellowship with other blended families living in the blender. We'll share Bible-based resources, eat, play and pray through the chaos.
