Life groups are part of our vision. 5 Point was named for the 5 purposes of the church: worship, evangelism, ministry, discipleship, and fellowship. Our vision for Life Groups is to see you experience discipleship and fellowship in a great way. Through a meal and just getting to know each other, you experience fellowship. As you circle up and discuss the bible, you’re experiencing discipleship. Reach and Teach.
Life groups are Biblical. While the church was being created there weren’t fancy buildings, so they met in people’s homes. “... breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” - Acts 2:46b-47. I long to see this very thing happen in our Life Groups.
Life groups are where new friendships are formed. As our church continues to grow larger, we must grow smaller. A great way to do this is to get involved in a Life Group. Have you ever thought to yourself, “I don’t know everyone”? We were created to be with others and not alone. Life Groups are how we try and connect.
Life groups allow you to serve others. Life Groups do so much to turn our focus on others and not just ourselves. Love Week is one of my favorite weeks of the year and to see so many people serving others in our community JACKS ME UP!
I could go on and on but I think you get the idea. You need to be in a Life Group! Don't hesitate! Don't put it off! Do it now! I promise you won't regret it.
