Get a Life...Group!

This week here at the E-Free Church in Gaylord, Michigan, it is the middle week of our current 3-week series through Acts 2:41-47 that we are calling “I Love My Church!” We are seeing that the believers in the early church didn’t just “DO CHURCH” together. They “DID LIFE” together. Church for them was not simply a “Sunday to Sunday” experience, as it is with so many people today, it was a “Day by Day” lifestyle. As a result, we don’t want to simply see you “ATTEND” E-Free Church. We want to see you “CONNECT” with E-Free Church. And one of the best way we have for you to do just that is through what we call “LIFE GROUPS.”

A Life Group is a small group of people who are part of the E-Free family that get together once a week outside of the worship service with the main goal of “CONNECTION.” Through Life Groups we are able to offer to you an opportunity to connect with and to build friendships with others who also attend our church. This is a way for you to get to know each other and to encourage each other in your faith. The Christian life was never intended to be done alone. The Bible calls the church “The Body of Christ.” We are to do this thing called “following Jesus” as a community. We are to do it together.

So I want to encourage each of you not just to “ATTEND” E-Free Church! Instead, take the step and “CONNECT” with E-Free Church as well. Sign up this Sunday to be part of one of our LIFE GROUPS which will start back up again the first week of October. This next session of Life Groups will last for just 9 weeks through the end of November. Give it a try! What do you really have to lose?

ATTEND” church this Sunday! But don’t stop there! Take a step to “CONNECT” as well.

Get a Life…Group!
