We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got to celebrate with their family and friends. One of Aroma’s values is to build community. Our church recently started three community groups, which meet at different locations after Sunday services. They are a way for our community to build deeper relationships and invite new friends. It’s important that each facet of Aroma (both church and cafe) demonstrates our values and overall vision. It is also fun finding unique ways to do this. Our Aroma DongYuan cafe had the privilege of preparing 60 Thanksgiving meals for the church community groups last Sunday. Everything turned out great, and it felt so good working together!

We can’t do this without you! Please pray that as we keep meeting, our church community will be filled with God’s presence, yet continue to be hungry! Also, please pray for all the new people, that they would smell Christ’s aroma and gain a strong desire to learn more about him!
