As of now we are a fully functioning church. Community groups have begun and are Thursday at 6:30PM online@ zoom.
What is the purpose of these community groups?
This is by no means an exhaustive list but to give you some insight into community groups: community groups help people find belonging in the church. Often times in a church with community groups you will hear someone say "my community group…" Community groups help members have ownership and are a place where they can find belonging.
Community groups are also a place where the Bible is taught. This will be a Bible study time. Community groups are also for fellowship. They are a time to get together with members of the church other than Sundays. Community group time is a time to build relationships with your brothers and sisters in Christ: not just a surface relationship but a meaningful worthwhile relationship with other believers. Its purpose is to become friends and eventually become the family (community) that God wants us to be.
Community group is a place to invite friends and show those friends the love of Christ. Community groups help you grow in the knowledge of God as well. By being in close relationship with other believers you will get to see God work in other peoples' lives constantly reminding you that God is powerful and he is at work. These groups are a time and a place to also serve others. We get to come together to care and serve one another. Most importantly, the purpose of community groups is to glorify God.
In doing all of the things listed above, we glorify God. Therefore, the true purpose of community groups are to glorify God.
