Living Life Together...That may be the easiest way to sum up what our community groups are all about. We believe that God uses our relationships with each other to grow and form us in ways we cannot see or understand. We strive to make our groups places where each person can grow in their faith, receive encouragement and hope, and know that they are loved and cared for. By meeting together each week, we are able to invest in each other as God continues to form us into a community of faith, hope, and love.
:: Our Fall Schedule ::
This fall our groups will be studying through The Good and Beautiful Community, where James Bryan Smith uses the Scriptures to help us know how to live in relationship with others as apprentices of Jesus. "Apprentices of Jesus are not part-time do-gooders, but live in continuous contact with the kingdom of God, and are constantly men and women in whom Christ dwells. They do not sometimes tell the truth, sometimes live sacrificially or sometimes forgive. There are myriad opportunities for us to impact the world in which we live." We will discuss how to bring spiritual formation and community engagement together, as well as specific spiritual practices that root new, true narratives about God and the world in our souls.
