5 Reasons Why You Should Join a Community Group

We talk a lot about community groups here at The Crossing. We do this because we believe being in community is the absolute best way to grow as followers of Jesus. We believe that everyone should be in a community group.

For those of you who are a part of a group, you know why we say this. If you're not in a group, here are some reasons why you should jump in.


5 Reasons Why You Should Join a Community Group

1. You'll grow closer to God.

Our community groups are designed to help you apply the things you learn from God's word. Application. Application. Application.

2. You'll gain new friends.

You may not be best friends with every single person in your group (or you may, who knows?), but that's okay. You'll likely make a few deep connections with others in your group. Wouldn't it be great to have a few people in your life who are growing in their walk with God alongside you? It's a difference maker.

3. You'll gain family.

We take care of each other in our community groups. We help each other when we're in need. Being in a community group allows you to have another set of family members. After a little while you'll find that your group is more like a family than it is just a group of people.

4. You'll be prayed for more.

We all need to go before the throne of God more. Imagine being lifted up before God by your group without you even knowing it. God responds to our prayers and desires for us to pray to Him. When you're in a group, you'll find that you have even more to pray about and you'll end up being prayed for even more.

5. You'll grow more with others than you will alone.

The Christian life was never meant to be lived alone. Community groups offer you a perfect way to ensure that you are doing life with others and taking your walk with God as serious as you should. You'll be encouraged to step out of your comfort zone and see what God will do in your life.
