Life Groups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering that 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 one-another. God has 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. Physically, we do live in a community, but spiritually, socially, and relationally we often live our lives in isolation. We find ourselves with no one to turn to when we have a major issue that has just surfaced in our life. 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.
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God,
and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”
1 John 4:7-8
It is in the still quiet moments of rest and relaxation where God's voice can be heard ever so clear. Yearly retreats are designed for life groups to enjoy spiritual refreshment, restorations and transformations. Stay tuned to hear about the next men's, women's, youth or couples' retreat coming soon!
