“Life Groups are the engine of the church”
One of the ironic consequences of the sweeping growth of social media is that we often find ourselves more personally isolated. One online article warns: “Those who oppose leading one’s life primarily or exclusively online claim that virtual friends are not adequate substitutes for real-world friends, and . . . individuals who substitute virtual friends for physical friends become even lonelier and more depressive than before.”
Technology aside, we all battle with seasons of loneliness, weariness, busy schedules, struggles, hardships and wondering if anyone knows, understands, or cares about the burdens we carry or the struggles we face. We all need a breath of fresh air, we all need encouragement, we all need a well done, we all need to be loved, we all need to be cared for know how much we are loved and valued.
There is certainly a place which energizes and encourages us, brings comfort to our weary minds, love into our thirsty hearts, hope into hopeless situations, healing over our hurts and smile on our tired faces – a place of fellowship where people of all ages come together once a week to pray, worship, break bread, have fun, share meals and reach out as part of growing in teams. There is one friend who shows up every week as we meet and He makes all the difference- Jesus!
Quite contrary to social media culture the Bible says “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day (second return of Jesus) drawing near”. Heb 10:25-27 (ESV).
As a church we are spread in 14 Life Groups -10 in English, 4 in Hindi each looking to grow spiritually, relationally and evangelistically.
If you are not part of this, or are new to us we welcome you to come and experience the excitement of our life groups.
