CSF and Girls Group

Hey everyone! My name is Megan and I am very proud to say I am a new member of the CSF family! I am a freshman in my second semester here at WVU and started attending CSF during the first few weeks of school in August. My close, dear friend Carrie James sent me emails and texts about coming to CSF over the summer and even before I had graduated from high school, I told her I would try it out. My first Sunday was memorable, that’s for sure. I cannot thank Carrie enough for sending me those emails and texts because she helped me find a home away from home. I don’t think I have ever met any nicer people than the people I have met at CSF. I am now proud to call them my brothers and sisters in Christ. I have never felt closer to God than what I do right now and I think that has everything to do with CSF.  The only word that I can come up with to describe the activities here would be simply amazing.  Bible studies and life groups have been my favorite; life group especially. This semester we are split up in girls group and guys group.  In girls group we are studying Mother Teresa’s No Greater Love and the first few weeks have been great.  We have covered prayer, giving and my personal favorite love.  Mother Teresa talks about Isaiah 49 in the chapter about love. Isaiah 49:15-16 “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will never forget you, for I have carved you into the palm of my hand”.  This takes my breath away and it is even more special when I get to talk to my girls about the love that God has for each of us.  He binds us all together and makes everything right.  He carved us into the palm of His hand for all time just like the way that CSF has been carved into my heart.

Guys Group

We are doing Guys Group differently this year! There is no designated leader so each week a different person shares what God has placed on his heart based on how we live and how we should live. Some past discussions include: pride, why we sin, how we can give our entire life to God, and the last chapter of the book of Jonah.  We have between 8-12 guys meeting in my apartment on Wednesday evenings from 7-9:30pm. I feel that having all the guys meeting at once has helped everyone open up and discuss how they feel about the topics.
