I was “suffering” for the Lord in Southern California last weekend, but when I listened to the sermon online, I got excited. Pastor Lionel spoke from Galatians 6 about Calvary being a place that restores people. It’s not about getting people to stop sinning and be better, it’s about helping them become more like Christ, which allows them to live life just like God created it to be lived! Helping one another is part of Christians “doing life” together. In fact, Life Groups will be meeting this week to talk about exactly what it looks like for them to do life the way it’s described in Galatians 5 and 6. It’s an amazing idea: we aren’t just here to worship together; we’re here to help encourage one another to practice living out the gospel!
We would love to have you be a part of one of the new Life Groups launching this Sunday. The Life Group Launch event is at Thomas Jefferson Middle School cafeteria at 1p (lunch and childcare provided!), and you’ll want to click this link to let us know you’re coming. This is a great chance to get connected to a smaller group of people who will encourage and care for you as you grow in your faith. And you’ll be doing the same for them! I think Life Groups are indispensable to our growth as followers of Christ. And they’re one of the best ways to feel like you’re a part of the church—known, valued, nudged to grow, and helped when you need it.
Sunday worship is where we get started on this journey to do life together. Join us this Sunday when Pastor Lionel is sharing more of his heart from Galatians 6 on being a church that restores.
