That Thing We Do With Others

Maybe the first step, maybe the most comfortable step, maybe the most known step of following Jesus these days is the idea of corporate worship. When we sing with others, laugh with others, give with others, learn with others, and commune with others we feel like we have “churched”. This collective effort is a vital part of our effort to be a disciple.

 

That Thing We Do Alone-Ish

When it comes to the other parts of your week that don’t show up on your schedule as church time are there times when you approach and spend time with the One who gave everything for you? Do you set aside time so the Father has your full attention, affection, and adoration?

That Thing We Do With Others

Fellowship, trust and care are essential elements of biblical community and essential elements of community among believers today. We believe Life Groups create the best environment for developing these essential elements, and the spiritually significant relationships that we all need in our lives. The truth is if Jesus needed community, then so do we.

Those Things We Do With Others

Life groups should provide opportunities for fellowship, learning about God through His word, and serving in some capacity. Have you joined a life group and found that you enjoy the fellowship and learning about God but you’re not crazy about that service aspect?

Most of us think of service as a physical activity like mowing someone’s yard or helping someone move when they are not physically able to do it. However, service can be as simple as praying for someone or just listening to someone share their problems. Even more personally, service may be humbly accepting help from others in your life group during a particularly difficult time in your life. Service is not just a giving process but sometimes, it’s an accepting action on your part.

That Thing We Give

One of the most difficult talking points for any church and any Christian is often money and giving. However, giving isn’t all about following rules, but about what generosity does for the Kingdom and for us. Generosity advances the Gospel, generosity shares Jesus, and generosity transforms you. Generosity is good for the Gospel, it is good for the church, but it is just as good for you.

That Thing We Just Do

The church, the body of Christ exists to do many things. It exists to build you up, it exists so that we are built up together as the body, and finally so that the church is built up. The truth is, that moment when people other than the Leaders start doing, start volunteering, start serving, the mission accelerates and the impact goes deeper. The more people who chose to get involved increase the impact of our faith family. More importantly, they increase the Kingdom impact of FCC.
