Why Community Groups?
God never meant for us to live life alone! The Christian life is about relationships and community. God uses other people to help us grow. Through life’s ups and downs we celebrate with each other and support one another. Community groups give us opportunity to develop deep, caring relationships. They provide an accepting environment where we can help each other study the Bible and apply its lessons to our lives. Community groups also provide us opportunity to serve one another, join in fellowship, worship, and prayer, and to encourage one another to reach out in service to our church community, our local community and even consider how we can impact the world with the love of Christ.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 tells us, “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.”
