We all want community. Real community. Jesus is all about creating the kind of community that goes beyond just being known - how we live and love each other will change the world around us.
🌱 A flourishing community.
Get your roomies and friends together and go deep in this 7-week series unpacking what means to be a flourishing community.
Each week of the small group series includes:
5min intro video for the facilitator giving an overview of the study and key points of the passage. (note: these videos were recorded prior to social distancing, so look for notes in the YouTube video descriptions on how to adapt. However, the Small Group Guides have been modified to be used online. Many video programs have options for breakout rooms, but if yours doesn't, you can have a whole group discussion.)
1-pager small group guide with an ice breaker, passage background info, discussion questions to choose from, and a response activity.

Communities flourish when followers of Jesus practice compassion. We see and act, embodying what it means to love God and love our neighbors. We extend compassion to all, even when it is costly or risky.
This 7-week series features 15min large group talks that explore values and practices in the Bible that are necessary for a community to truly flourish: embodied faith, selfless love, radical inclusion, mutuality, reconciliation, costly compassion, and justice.
