Growing Up with One Another
The poet and clergyman John Donne said it best:
No man is an island, entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent,
a part of the main.
All we know about man and God tells us that we were made for community. The triune God has fellowship with himself and us. And the church has fellowship with one another and God. There are so many good reasons for us to gather together: encouragement (Hebrews 3:13), the bearing of one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2), and a shared experience of worship and growth (Acts 2:42-47). If you can find a group of people who love you, accept you and are honest with you, you cannot help but be blessed.
At Roswell we make this experience available with community groups. Typically, these groups of 8-12 people meet once a week in homes for prayer, talk and a discussion of the past Sunday’s message. There are ten-week “semesters” three times a year, and you can join one near you at that time (but if you can’t wait, we’ll try to find a spot!).
So many people have said that these meetings put “skin” on the truths we hear on Sundays, and often bring a more relevant and personal understanding of what it means to love God and others.
