Fellowship

"As ridiculous as it may sound, sometimes all any of us needs in life is for someone to hold our hand and walk next to us."
― James Frey

The Fellowship Counsel exists to foster relationship building among our church family and those that might be seeking a place to call home. We believe that the church should be a place of shelter and comfort, as well as a place of growth and service. The key scripture that drives our purpose is found in

Acts 2: 42-47 and is titled: The Fellowship of the Believers 42 They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

Fellowship is an integral part of a vibrant church, as it helps us know each other on a personal level. We learn to listen to the hearts of those we worship with and through that hear how God is moving in the midst of His Church. "Fellowship is a place of grace, where mistakes aren't rubbed in, but rubbed out. Fellowship happens when mercy wins over justice."
― Rick Warren

Fellowship events consist of large events like the Community Church Christmas Party, monthly First Sunday Fellowship Luncheons and the yearly Chuckwagon Cookout... to smaller venues like Home Groups, the men's skeet shoot, movie nights, and other opportunities to get together.

"The church exists primarily for two closely correlated purposes: to worship God and to work for his kingdom in the world ... The church also exists for a third purpose, which serves the other two: to encourage one another, to build one another up in faith, to pray with and for one another, to learn from one another and teach one another, and to set one another examples to follow, challenges to take up, and urgent tasks to perform. This is all part of what is known loosely as fellowship."
