Following Jesus was never meant to be done alone. We need other people and other people need us. In Acts 2:42-47, as the early church began, we read: “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he 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.”
These verses are filled with words like they, themselves, fellowship, everyone, all believers and together. We are most vulnerable to attack when we are alone. Together we find strength, encouragement, commitment and support. God uses all of our gifts together to grow one another up.
We believe getting connected to a Life Group, Sunday School class, fellowship or support group and/or ministry team is essential to your spiritual journey and the spiritual journey of others. If you have questions about particular opportunities to get connected, please let us know. We would love to help you get connected.
