Life Groups – Life is better Connected
Life is meant to be lived in community. It’s so important we have the word community in our name. In many ways, the church is most the body of Christ when it gathers in small groups of Christ followers who encourage and strengthen each other. This has been true from the very beginning of Christianity. The very first account of what the early Christ followers did is recorded in Acts 2:41-42
Those who accepted his message were baptized,
and about three thousand were added to their number that day.
They devoted themselves to
the apostles’ teaching
and to fellowship,
to the breaking of bread
and to prayer.
Put in today’s terms, they talked about spiritual things, they loved on each other, they had a meal together and they prayed. That’s pretty much the formula. Different groups talk about different things. Some talk about the sermon that week. Some do Bible studies. Some to application of the Bible to life studies but all of them are about doing life together, supporting each and being friends.
In our fast-paced, no time for anything lives, we encourage you to make time for a Life Group. In addition to strengthening your spiritual life it will ground you and give you balance.
