| It’s Join a Small Group Month
by Cory Mansfield
Did you know September is Join a Small Group month? Woo hoo! Let the celebrations begin!
Ok, ok, ok. You got me. It’s not. But we recognize how vital the role of small groups play in the life of the church and the life of the individual believer. God did not create us to be loners. He did not create us to go through life alone.
Look at the following verses. Can you see the point?
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” – Genesis 1:26
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. – John 1:1-2
How else can we explain the 50+ “one-another” verses we find scattered through the New Testament? God has called us to go through this life together, supporting one another, serving one another, loving one another, caring for one another, and so on. So this is a perfect time to really place an emphasis on small groups and challenge the congregations to take part.
