Do you ever feel like the Lone Ranger trudging through life on your own? Hebrews 10:24-25 says “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” This passage commands us to be involved in intentional one-anothering. That is, we are to intentionally look for ways we can encourage each other to love God and serve others – and the urgency of this only grows as the day of Christ draws nearer and nearer.
At the time of this writing, communities tended to be tighter and more close-knit. This is obviously not the case any longer. With an increasingly technological and mobilized society our interactions with each other tend to occur less often and be less meaningful. This means we need to be even more intentional about one-anothering. Of course we have that handshake time in the middle of the church service and the mad dash at the end to catch the game or get lunch but the reality is those things just aren’t sufficient to be a true community.
This is why we recognize the need to do intentional one-anothering on a small scale. You can call this a small group, growth group, mini-collective, or community group – we really don’t care. Our goal is pretty simple: to encourage each other unto love for God and good works. Our desire is to see our church grow more and more into a community that displays and declares the radical grace of Jesus our Savior that has changed us and we see these small groups as an important part of that goal.
We have a variety of community groups – some for women, some for men, and some for all ages. If you are interested in attending one of our community groups please contact the church office so we can connect you with one of our community group leaders.
