In our world today, we get captivated by so many things – TV’s, phones, social media, sports and anything else we can cram into our crazy schedules. All in hope of connecting, resting, and enjoying life. However, we find the things meant to connect us, enrich us, and entertain us leave us wanting.
Why? It’s simple. We have replaced deep, meaningful relationships with people for Facebook friends, Twitter followers, and Instagram. We watch people’s lives from our computers instead of getting across tables and doing life with them! Our schedules are so packed full with things to make us happy that we are too exhausted to enjoy what God created us for – relationship!
Fellowship believes Jesus had something else in mind for His disciples. Jesus offers an eternal relationship with the God of the universe who came in the form of a baby with a purpose of giving up His perfect life as a ransom for you and me!
We are created for relationships – a relationship with our Creator that leads us to become Family with others who have placed their faith in the finished work of Christ. As disciples of Jesus we are to grow those relationships, encourage one another and do life with other believers while reaching out to those not in the Family.
This is why Fellowship prioritizes Home Church. Home Church is all about relationships! We do this through weekly prayer, weekly study and community
in the context of a small group.
What are the expectation for someone in a Home Church?
Adults form relationships by proximity and consistency over an extended period of time. Since Home Church is all about relationships, we ask those in a HC to commit to being present and prepared each week. Make Home Church a settled fixture in your week as opposed to something that is a week to week decision. Obviously if sickness hits or work goes late unexpectedly, you will have to miss, but that is the exception, not the norm. To form great relationships, we need you there! We also want you prepared by having been at church on Sunday morning or listening to the podcast of the message. This allows you to fully participate in the discussion as well as share any insight the Lord may have given you that would bless someone else. We ask for you to commit to at least one term.
