God has so ordained things that we only grow in grace through the frail instrumentality of one another. --- St. John of the Cross
The gospel intends to transform us and make us fit for kingdom life.
And to make us friends... ever more intentional and competent friends.
Jesus was very clear: By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. (John 13:35)
A basic question:
How can we ever learn to love each if we don’t know each other? If we remain perpetual acquaintances!
So, we aim at friendship. Which takes time and hard work!
But the upside is enormous.
What We Do
Sisters Are For Each other(SAFE)
Every two weeks the women of our church gather in small groups to fellowship, pray for each other and encourage one another just as Christ encourages us
Band of Brothers
Every two weeks the men of our church gather to fellowship as a group, strengthening and praying for one another to hold each other accountable in Christ
Sunday Worship service begins at 10:15, please join us for a time of fellowship as we learn more and grow closer to God. We look forward to welcoming you just as Christ welcomes us
Wednesday Night Bible Study
Weekly Bible study begins at 7:00 on Wednesday evening, we are currently studying through the book of Daniel.
We gather on Sundays for corporate worship and midweek for bible study and prayer.
But then also (typically every other week) in smaller, less formal settings for intentional conversation and service.
These dimensions of the life of the church work together.
Scripture also speaks realistically about the human heart and cautions:
So watch your step, friends. Make sure there’s no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God. For as long as it’s still God’s Today, keep each other on your toes so sin doesn’t slow down your reflexes. If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we’re in this with Christ for the long haul.
(Hebrews 3. 12 -14, Peterson’s paraphrase from “The Message”)
