Hi everyone, as we begin to gear up for life groups this coming fall I wanted to provide some context regarding life groups.
Our mission at Cross Culture Church says, “We are a church of great neighbors that display and declare the good news of Jesus Christ.” One of the ways we can share our story is through “Life Group” communities. Life Groups have one simple purpose, to bring people together. Sharing life through community is a part of our design, but meaningful relationships are not always easy to find. That is why Life Groups exist to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible.
People participating in life together, in a small group setting, to become more like Christ is a classic ground breaking setting for the Holy Spirit to minister, encourage, inspire & motivate all races & ethnicity. Life Groups were meant to do 2 things:
Authentic community. We encourage everyone to connect with people you may or may not know where conversations are organic, real but also seasoned with God’s grace & mercy as we come together as one.
A non threatening place. Jesus paid it all at the cross. Romans chapter 8 verse 1 declares: There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
You might be thinking I have nothing to offer a life group...I don’t have a dynamic testimony, or a mind blowing encouraging word to say to somebody as a matter of fact I’m just ordinary... 100% Not true! It’s a lie from the enemy. You are an individual specifically created by God’s design, his finger print is all over your life, he has breathed the breath of life inside you. God wants to use your unique story and creative energy in a life group setting for his Glory.
I will be back next week for part 2 stay tuned...
