Seminar Title: 4 Reasons Why You Can’t Afford to Avoid a Christ Centered Community
Summary of Breakout Session: In Ephesians 4, Paul is clear about the importance of community in the life of the believer. In fact, the life of Christ will never fully be developed in a Christian’s life apart from strong relationships in His beautifully diverse spiritual family. Yet many believers have either been hurt in community or haven’t found a safe place to call their own. Thus the church is filled with immature, unstable people who lack the joy safe community offers. In this message, Sandy identifies the top 4 reasons Christians avoid community as well as the motivation needed to take a second look at the 3 surprising benefits community offers.
