We were all meant for community. Not only do we know that God uses community to help shape us, but our lives are more fulfilling when shared with others. That's why we want you to connect to a small group!
We were created by God to live in community. The account of creation tells us that the idea of a person living in isolation is “not good.” (Gen. 2:18) Being part of a small group is an intentional step towards being connected to others in relationships.
It is in relationship with others that our walk with God is given an opportunity to be encouraged and challenged by other believers. Talking through a Bible story or passage brings the truth about God and His ways into a more personal and passionate level.
The two great commands tell us that we should “Love God” and “Love others.” In a small group we can put this into practice. Over 50 “one another” passages in the Bible tell us to do such things as encourage one another, serve one another, and pray for one another. We can’t know everyone in a large church well enough to be involved this deeply, but we can as a part of a small group.
If you’re new to church and Christianity, you’ve probably got a lot of unanswered questions. Over seven sessions in the Gospel of Mark, you'll find out about the person at the heart of Christianity (Jesus) while sharing a meal with other people who are at a similar stage or interest level in the Christian faith. The content in Christianity Explored is great if you’re just beginning your journey as a Christian or if you aren’t quite sure if Christianity is for you yet.
