what we do inside
You and I live in a house... We do things inside with our family, but we also do things outside in the local communty and beyond. What we do inside relates to our 'in house' church programs primarily for our church family.
We were never meant to do life alone...!
Why Community ?
In a world of loneliness, pain, and daily challenges, life can be extremely hard. The good news is we were never meant to carry life’s burdens or even celebrate its joys alone. God gave us community. You don't have to do life alone. In fact, if you think you are surviving just fine without community, you could be thriving beyond belief with it. We are created for community, called to it and changed by it.
1.We were created for community
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work. If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10)
2.God has called us to community
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together , as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another- and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Heb 10:24-25)
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” (Gal 6:2)
“He who separates himself (from God and others) seeks his own desire, he quarrels against all sound wisdom.”
(Proverbs 18:1 NASB)
3.We are changed by community
It is one of the most effective ways for a believer at any point in his / her spiritual journey to grow closer to Christ.
“As iron sharpens iron so does one man sharpen another.” (Proverbs 27:17)
