Just as the first followers of Jesus met in small groups in their homes to devote themselves to learning and growing, loving and serving, Friendship Church will gather in small groups modeled after these first communities of believers. We hope to learn how to live together as the Body of Christ in the 21st century.
We call this Core Group Ministry. Core groups will be the base community to which all friends and members of Friendship are encouraged to belong. By joining a Core Group, people come to know and love one another as they share their stories of life and faith, study the Word, and engage in fellowship.
As we gather over a meal or dessert, we’ll share the stories of our lives and faith, our joys and concerns through discussion, prayer and activities guided by facilitators. Core group members will support, encourage and pray for one another—as the group matures, so does the level of trust, through sharing and holding one another accountable for their daily walk with God.
Each group will together choose an area of missions or outreach in which to become involved. We believe the journey inward must lead to the journey outward.
For convenience, the groups have been structured according to where you live. Each group will meet monthly in members’ homes, allowing us more opportunity to get to know each other than is possible only on Sunday mornings.
Core Group leaders began training with me in June, and we will continue to meet on a quarterly basis for feedback and to share ways of enhancing the small group ministry.
I trust God’s Spirit will guide us as we share in this new beginning.
In the joy of Christ’s love-Pastor Anna
