The Bible says about the first generation of Christians:
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common.
(Acts 2:42–44 ESV)
We believe that the Christian life is meant to be lived in community with other people. In a growing church, it’s hard to maintain the kind of community where deep personal relationships are built, where real encouragement and care happens, where we walk the Christian life together, where we read and study the Bible together, and where we pray for each other, for our church and our world in meaningful ways.
This is why we have a network of Grace Community Groups. There are groups meeting all over the Sunshine Coast, at different times during the week.
During the regular school term, our Grace Community Groups work through Bible studies prepared by our pastors, which follow on from the Bible teaching on Sunday. This gives you the opportunity to discuss the Bible among friends, ask questions, and talk seriously about lining up our lives with God’s Word.
Some groups are open to anyone, some are either ladies-only or men-only, others are focussed on a particular age or stage of life. Some groups happen during the day, others in the evening. We are aiming to plant as many groups as we can across the Sunshine Coast.
- That the Lord would bless these groups, growing those who participate in their knowledge and experience of the Lord.
- That the Lord would raise-up more leaders of these groups
- That more groups would be raised-up due to interest.
