Discipleship Means Life in Community

Image from the movie, Son of God.

Jesus called His disciples into a life of community. He did that with His first disciples, and He continues to do that today. Following Jesus as our leader is not merely an individual exercise. He calls us into His body, His family, His flock, His church. He knows that we will need traveling companions on this life journey—brothers, sisters, people to encourage us, people to challenge us, people to walk alongside us, people to get in our face when we get off the path.

Who are you walking alongside today? Who encourages you as you learn to follow Jesus? Who are you strengthening by your presence? Into whom are you pouring your life? Who is pouring life into you?

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.— Hebrews 10:24-25

We hope that you get involved in community life here at King’s Grant. Sunday morning small groups are quite convenient, at 9:45 a.m. (after and before morning worship) and Wednesday groups begin January 9 at 6:00 and run through Easter 2019.

Sunday Evening Gathering

Everyone is invited to this brand new four-week discussion starting on Sunday evening, February 12 from 5:15 – 6:00 pm. We will meet upstairs in Room 208/210, with coffee and snacks provided.

Your Move:
4 Questions To Ask When You Don’t Know What To Do

by Andy Stanley

Throughout our lives, we are confronted with decisions we never anticipated having to make. So what do you do when it’s your move and you aren’t sure what to do? Every week will have a 30 minute video followed by discussion.

Kids ages 3 – grade 6 are welcome to join Awana for the four weeks and we can also watch younger kids – contact Karen Strull for details if your kids are younger or not already in Awana. More Awana information is found here.

“Your Move” Gatherings are an opportunity to create authentic community in your life. Regardless of who you are or where you live, inviting friends or even acquaintances to regularly circle up with you for meaningful conversation is the first step … and perhaps the hardest. From there, we’ve got you covered with everything from series-specific discussion questions to tips for facilitating your Gathering.

But first, take 3 minutes to hear why Andy believes “circles” are so important:

Because Life is Better Connected: It isn’t meant to be lived in isolation. It’s one thing to show up to family functions, grab dinner with friends, and shoot the breeze around the water cooler. But where is the space in which the guard comes down and it’s safe to be completely open and honest about our struggles and questions? Imagine having a circle of people to meet us in that space.
