When we are saved by the work of Jesus Christ on our behalf, we are not only brought into a glorious salvation, but also into a community of faith – the church. Lives are changed and the church is built as members proclaim Gospel truth and hope to one another.
At Community Church, Connections Groups are where followers of Christ interact with one another to be built up as disciples and to make disciples of others, just as Jesus Christ has called us to do. These groups consist of up to 16 individuals and can be made up of couples and/or singles of any age. They meet regularly for a time of study, prayer and fellowship.
FOCUS FOR FALL 2017
It has been five hundred years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Luther’s theses called for the reform of the church and served as the catalyst for the Protestant Reformation. Its impact is still felt today.
Echoes of the Reformation: Five Truths That Shape the Christian Life is a Bible study that will be used in our Connections Groups this fall. This study examines the five core truths that came from the Reformation—often called the solas. Connections Groups members will explore these essential convictions of the faith and emerge more immersed in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
