"Spending time with other believers can often lift us up. They help us to keep our eyes on God."

"Coming together to support one another is an experience that allows us to learn, gain strength, and show the world exactly what God is. Fellowship as a church is one of the most important aspects of our faith."

We want to personally invite our church family to join us on June 1, at 6:30pm for a time of fellowship together in worship and prayer. This night is to support our high school students that will be heading to Boston this summer in order to answer God’s call to declare the Good News of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Why do we want you to share in our special night?? Because fellowship is an important part of our faith. Coming together to support one another is an experience that allows us to learn, gain strength, and show the world exactly what God is. Fellowship as a church is one of the most important aspects of our faith.

 

Fellowship Gives Us a Picture of God

Each of us together shows all of God's graces to the world. No one is perfect. We all sin, but each of us has a purpose here on Earth to show aspects of God to those around us. Each of us has been given specific spiritual gifts.

 

When we come together in fellowship, it's like demonstrating God as a whole. All of us together show the glory of God.

 

Romans 12:4-6 "For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ, we though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.  We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith." (NIV)

 

Fellowship Makes Us Stronger

No matter where we are in our faith, fellowship provides us with strength. Being around other believers gives us the chance to learn and grow in our faith. It's always good to spend some time in fellowship so that we remember that God makes us strong.

 

Fellowship Provides Encouragement

Spending time with other believers can often lift us up. They help us to keep our eyes on God. God also works through them to provide what we need. Coming together with others can aid in our lives and give us the encouragement to move forward in our faith.

 

Hebrews 10:24-25 "Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near." (NLT)

 

Fellowship Reminds Us We're Not Alone

Coming together with other believers in worship and conversation helps to remind us that we are not alone in this world.

 

There are believers everywhere. It's amazing that no matter where you are in the world, when you meet another believer, it's like you suddenly feel at home. That's why God made fellowship so important. He wanted us to come together so that we always know we're not alone. Fellowship allows us to build those lasting relationships so we're never by ourselves in the world.

 

Fellowship Helps Us Grow

Coming together is a great way for each of us to grow in our faith. When we come together in fellowship, we teach each other. God gives us the gift of learning and growing when we come together in fellowship. We show each other how to live as God wants us to live, and how to walk in His footsteps.

"He wanted us to come together so that we always know we're not alone. Fellowship allows us to build those lasting relationships so we're never by ourselves in the world."
