has definitely given this church the burden for pastoral care
and discipleship. Our desire is beyond just birthing people
into the kingdom, but it involves providing effective covering
and accountability that precipitates growth, and bringing people
to the place of personal fruitfulness and ministry. It is impossible
to pastor a crowd in any individual way. The Care Group approach
is a biblical way of caring for and feeding a multitude of people.
Relationships and Fellowship
is clear that God wants the individual members of the church
to be more closely linked to one another so that they can be
in a position to better minister to the needs of one another
as the Bible clearly directs. This was a top priority of the
church in the Book of Acts and the Care Group will help to keep
people from being alone in the midst of a large number of people.
This is more important for the more passive, reserved and quiet
personality and yet all will benefit greatly by their involvement.
takes several years to feel a part of a crowd, but in a few
brief contacts in an intimate setting, people can feel loved,
cared for and needed.
is a warm welcome for you at one of our Care Groups. The focus
may be anything from Creative Arts to Bible Study, Freedom to "Treasure
Hunts", but the underlying joy is always the beginning
of new friendships.
