Growth Groups are an essential part of our church. They provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering the early church worshipped in large settings in the synagogues as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and each other. God reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church. Thus, we intentionally strive toward community through men's/women's groups, home gatherings, and other personal settings.
We have been created to live in community and not in isolation. Spiritually, socially, and relationally we often live in isolation. We find ourselves with no one to turn to when we face a major issue. Living in community affords us the opportunity to more wholly experience God through close relationships as we play and pray together, as we encourage and help one another, and as we study and live out God’s word together.
AND LET US CONSIDER HOW WE MAY SPUR ONE
ANOTHER ON TOWARD LOVE AND GOOD DEEDS.
LET US NOT GIVE UP MEETING TOGETHER, AS SOME ARE
IN THE HABIT OF DOING, BUT LET US
ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER - AND ALL THE MORE
AS YOU SEE THE DAY APPROACHING.
