Let's face it...living in community with others, even fellow believers, can be challenging and messy! Sometimes it's hard to understand why God would call us to specifically follow Him alongside others, and we can start to believe the lie that we can do this better on our own. But, in God's wisdom, He designed us to live and follow and serve and to be served within a community of believers, and that means allowing others into the messes we'd often rather hide. It's always easier to think of reasons to not seek out community...to hide, to fill our lives with hobbies, events and idols that crowd out this kind of life together...but when we do finally commit to living in true, vulnerable community with our brothers and sisters in Christ, we see Him bring truth, clarity and change in ways we will not find on our own.

Each year, our church spends three weeks reminding ourselves of what our mission is. This year we are focusing this time on understanding how the Word of God, Prayer and Gospel Community searches and rescues our identity and equips us to live out our mission for His glory.
