Designed for Community


By Leigh-Ann Brisbin,  Women’s DirectorCommunity

A wise friend once said, “Together, we are better”.   It is often quite easy in our busy lives and difficult circumstances to neglect true connectedness and service to others.

The Bible teaches, however, that we were designed for community, and it is the will of
God to meet together.  God is Three in One (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).  When Jesus walked the earth, He gathered the twelve disciples together with him.  The early church met regularly together and ministered alongside one another.  In Genesis 2:18, God said “it is not good for man to be alone”.

Hebrews 10:24-25 has come to be a reminder to me of the necessary aspects of community in personal and spiritual growth.
