Are you feeling alone? Lost in the crowd? Try joining a small group! Whether young adults, women, or men we have a variety of small group opportunities for you. Connecting with others in a small group is vital to the life of a Christ-follower. The world says to keep others at a distance and work through problems in isolation with self-help books and TV shows. But in Genesis 2:18, God said it isn’t good for us to be alone. There are many benefits of living in a small group and so are the dangers of living in isolation. The Bible provides excellent examples of what living in small group community could and should look like.
And let us take thought of how to spur one another on to love and good works, not abandoning our own meetings, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other and even more so because you see the day drawing near. – Hebrews 10:24-25
They were devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. -Acts 2:42
God lives in eternal community, Jesus lived in community with his 12 disciples, and the early church lived in community. Whether large or small, for study or support, for service or just plain enjoyment, group life isn’t just another meeting, it’s how you’ll finally start living the life you’ve always wanted–the life God is calling you to experience and enjoy.
