Small Groups and Unity

Posted: January 25, 2012 in Uncategorized

We have several Bible Study/Community Groups in the making or already meeting.  As I’ve said several times before, I would love if everyone at Sojourn was in a Sojourn Bible Study/Community Group.  Let me explain why.

English: Home bible study with the help of a b...

Jesus has called us out of the world and put us together, as one, in a local expression of His body (the body of the Christ – the church).  We are to grow together, minister together, serve God and one another together, worship together, fellowship together, and etc. together.  The way to develop this togetherness is to be together, get to know one another on a deeper level, trust one another, love one another, accept one another, etc.  This togetherness is

best developed in small groups that meet often.  As a part of Sojourn Church you’ll want to develop this with Sojourn.

The advantages of a small group Bible Study/Community Group

1)      Develops intimacy and unity between believers

2)      Helps you grow in your walk with Christ

3)      Bible Study

4)      Encouragement from other believers

5)      Grows churches spiritually and numerically

6)      Gives you a place to bring people you are introducing the Christ

7)      Gives a place to serve God together

Now, as you’ve notice I’ve been pushing you to join a SOJOURN bible study. Why? 

1)      You will develop this unity and intimacy in your small group

2)      You want this unity and intimacy with the church to which you belong

3)      You want to be a part of growing your church.  The small group is the way to go.

Now, I’m not suggesting that you give up any other Bible study, just saying add a Sojourn Bible study.

So we’ve put together several groups. (I’m always willing to start more).  Find one that suits you, or talk to me about creating another.
