‘Community’ is in the name of our church. We need community and each other on this journey of faith as we seek to be more like Christ. We are better together. We, the people of God, are the Church, as Christ is the Head of the Church. Life groups are small groups of 3-12 people, learning to do life together with the elements of eating together, worship, Scripture, prayer, and outreach in the life cycle of the group. This is the backbone of the church. Once the group reaches to about 12 people consistently, it is time think about multiplication, forming another group out of the current group to do life together. Life groups are places where Christians grow deeper and seekers and non believers can connect, ask questions, and grow in their faith journey with the Lord. Each group is different and there are many types of groups. We encourage people to connect with a group that is closest to your neighborhood and find a time that works for you.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,
not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing,
but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:24-25, NIV)
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.
All the believers were together and had everything in common.
They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.
Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.
They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,
praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.
And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. (Acts 4:42-47, NIV)
