Day 5


Community —why is it important?

Something you will hear around 29:11 is that “community is crucial to your growth,” and that statement is absolutely true. Being involved in a community that shares the same values and beliefs is not only crucial to your growth, but your day-to-day life as well. Community becomes like family as you begin to do ministry together, grow together, learn together, study the word together, and pray together.

There’s a story in Mark 2 where friends carry a paralyzed man to Jesus so that he can be healed. Jump over to our SOAP Reading today in Mark 2 to read the story… This is a great example of community. Friends looking out for each other, carrying each other to Jesus when we don’t have the strength.

You may have noticed already that we have an abundance of what we call “community groups.” These groups meet monthly and you can be involved in one or several! We have community groups for anyone and everyone from young adults, single moms, young men, women, moms with young kids, bible readers, all the way to not-so-20-something’s! If you’re a human, there’s a place for you to fit here. We want to help you find where you belong, where you can plant yourself and grow. We have a Community Group Booklet posted online of all of our community groups: , there’s a link to send a message to get connected as well. Find a group that you might be interested in and get connected!
