A Community Life Group is about knowing, being known, and making known. What does that mean?
Knowing: Being a part of a Community Life Group gives you a unique opportunity to get to know others in the church in a deeper way. In this small group setting, you’ll be able to deepen relationships far beyond what is possible at a Sunday morning meeting.
Being known: The best Community Life Groups involve developing a lasting trust with each other. This will take time, but it is an important aspect of allowing yourself to be known in your group. It’s also important to open yourselves to new members and work at developing trust with them. When you are known, your group can motivate, encourage, challenge, and pray for you more effectively.
Making known: God is on mission here on earth to make himself known to his creation. As believers we are called to join him on that mission. Being a part of a group means that you can enter mission with partners. Each group is encouraged always to be looking to the community and developing intentional practices aimed at making Christ known there in word and deed. Pastor Kelby is always available to brainstorm ideas with you!
Community Life Groups exist for the intentional growing of community both inside and outside of our church family. In Community Life Groups, we seek to strengthen our relationships within our church and deepen connections with our surrounding community and neighbours. To be a part of a community is to be a part of something beyond yourself. Joining a Community Life Group for intentional study of Scripture and prayer can be a significant avenue for growth in faith.
If you are interested in joining a group or coordinating a new one, contact Pastor Kelby (firstname.lastname@example.org).
