"CHOSEN" Life Group

Our Life Group, led by Leon Rennells, consists of people that are empty-nesters, used to be empty-nesters, and/or are soon-to-be empty-nesters. Jean Imholte dubbed our group the “CHOSEN” (Couples Helping Others Survive Empty-Nesthood)! – but we certainly welcome anyone at any stage of life.

This session, we are meeting on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. Currently, we are alternating our weekly meeting place between Ed & Candy Sanders’ home in Kelso and Rick & Jean Imholte’s home in Longview. We share dinner together (a very important part of our evening!); and then we discuss the previous weekend’s message.

Although we all have grown-up children out on their own, our end of the evening prayer time seems to revolve heavily around their needs, more than any other topic.

Leon (our “captain!”) is very organized and cognizant of the time and makes every effort to keep us on track – which is much appreciated, especially by those that have an early morning schedule the next day.

But for being involved in a Life Group, we would not have had the great opportunity to really get acquainted with other people that we attend church with and that are at a similar stage in life. It has been a blessing and an honor to come to know our co-life groupers. We welcome couples and singles alike and invite anyone that would even like to come and just share a meal with us to please do so.
