WHAT DO THEY ACCOMPLISH?
We were created to worship. As we consider our great God and all that He has accomplished for us in the gospel we are moved to offer our entire lives to Him in worship (Romans 12:1). Every action, every circumstance, even every thought is an opportunity to worship (1 Corinthians 10:31). Scripture gives us two broad spheres of life in which we walk out our daily worship of God: a) we worship God int he way we relate to one another as the church, and b) in the way we relate to those who do not know Christ. Community Groups exist to help us worship the Lord faithfully in both spheres.
Community Groups provide regular opportunity and accessibility for CLC to continue to grow together as disciples of Jesus. As brothers and sisters in God's family we seek to guard one another against the deceitfulness of sin (Hebrews 3:13), always considering how to stir up one another to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24-25).
Community Groups provide regular equipping, prayer support, and accountability as each of us seek to live faithfully with the gospel in the different spheres of influence in our lives. The CG can also function to mobilize CLC for involvement in the variety of ways we as a whole church seek to love our city with the gospel. CGs on mission will embrace the truth that we exist to see others come to faith in Christ.
Healthy Community Groups will multiply. One of the key elements of a CLC Community Group is multiplication. Just as healthy churches plant new churches - a healthy CG will grow relationally and numerically and eventually need to plant new groups. CG multiplication safeguards against becoming lost in routines and habits, allowing room for new people to join and see lives transformed by the gospel.
