Let’s face it—these days it's easy to put together a really wonderful worship experience in the comfort of your own home or car. You can download the best music, find the best preaching and tailor everything to your most particular desire. But guess what? Finding the best of everything on your own is the worst way to go about the Christian life. Why? Because we need each other in order to grow as Christians. As one author puts it, “your walk with God is a community project.”
It’s because the Lord has built into us a need for community that First Presbyterian is making a strong push for greater involvement in small groups. These groups are a great opportunity to get together with others and experience the truth of the gospel together.
At various times throughout the year, small groups will focus on a particular topic. We might dwell on a sermon series for several weeks. Then annually during Lent, the topic revolves around the senior pastor's Lenten Study Guide. No matter the study, the opportunity to dig deep into God's Word is always challenging, enlightening and thrilling, but so much more so when in community.
