Communities of Belonging

Our church is committed to building an even better community within our church family through our Communities of Belonging

A Community of Belonging can come in all shapes and sizes. It is a group that:

  1. Meets at least once a quarter together.
  2. Has a faith component during their gathering.
  3. Engages in sharing life with each other.
  4. Pray together.

Finding community is an integral part of growing in faith, and the Communities of Belonging initiative hopes to provide opportunities for us to build new relationships. Life has a way of pulling us in many directions, and we recognize the desire to connect beyond just Sunday mornings.  We are excited about this season in our church as we explore together how every member can be the connected body of Christ.

Fall 2020 Communities of Belonging

This fall, we will begin a 7-week Communities of Belonging program that commences the week of October 4 and runs until the week before Thanksgiving. Using the book Glittering Vices: A New Look at the Seven Deadly Sins and Their Remedies by Rebecca DeYoung as a template, pastoral staff with create video content to be used at the beginning of each COB session (5-6 minutes). Groups will then have time to discuss the materials for that week using the video as a jumping off point and referring to discussion questions provided.

DeYoung’s book will also be available for purchase by both leaders and participants alike but will not be required.

Fall Kick-Off

Mark your calendar for the fall kickoff for COBs: Wednesday, September 30, at 6:30 p.m. The FPC pastors will present a live discussion on Facebook Live and YouTube to start groups thinking about the 7-week fall study. The Pastors’ Live session will also be recorded for later viewing.
