We need to be open to serving our fellow small group members as well as those who are hurting outside of the church. Currently our Small Groups are studying Under the Overpass by Mike Yankoski. Mike shares his experience of choosing to live as a homeless person for about 5 months in 6 different cities.

What are some ways your Small Groups have reached out to serve the hurting in your communities?
