WAYS TO CONNECT
COMMUNITY Groups //
VARIOUS TIMES & LOCATIONS
Community Groups are SMALL GROUPS with BIG VISION! The Bible shares in Acts 2:42 - a picture of the early Church and what they did to connect, build and grow The Church. One things they did consistently, in fact - daily, was "breaking bread and fellowshipping" in each other's homes. In others words - they gathered around the table to share a meal and build relationship. At first glance, it may not sound spiritual, but it's a significant factor in how we grow in Christ!
