Col 1:28-29 “Whom we proclaim, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present very man perfect in Christ; Whereunto I labor also, striving according to his working, which works in me mightily”.
Thank you for partnering with us in this vital ministry we call Fellowship Groups. As a fellowship group leader, you will join the ranks of those who have been entrusted with the precious gift of caring for the body of Christ at Lighthouse Christian Church.
Fellowship groups provide a structure for building relationships where God can release spiritual covering, a friendly accountability, and a strong support system for our people. The concept of fellowship groups is Biblical and deeply spiritual. Our model for fellowship groups is the early Church, when the Disciples of Christ devoted themselves to fellowship and teaching. (Acts 2:42-47) Life transformation happens in the context of relationship. As we turn our hearts to develop these very important ministry relationships, we know that many lives will be changed for God’s glory.
Fellowship Groups are consistent with our identity as a fellowship of committed Christian friends.
To reach people with the life-giving message of Jesus that they might become fully committed followers of Jesus Christ.
To promote healthy relationships through fellowship groups which empower people for ministry. Fellowship Groups are focused on ministry to people. Each Fellowship Group will emphasize either Christian discipleship or evangelism to reach the lost. The activities of the group can be as varied or specific as necessary to facilitate relationship in the body. Fellowship Groups are a place people can expect to connect with other people and find satisfying relationship in Christ.
Goals: Acts 2:42-47
- Connect: build healthy relationships in the church body
