A Christian fellowship lives and exists by the intercession of its members for one another, or it collapses. I can no longer condemn or hate a brother for whom I pray, no matter how much trouble he causes me. His face, that hitherto may have been strange and intolerable to me, is transformed in intercession into the countenance of a brother for whom Christ died, the face of a forgiven sinner.”
Interested in joining a Life Group? Let us know!
At St. John’s, we seek to come alongside one another not only on Sundays when we gather, but throughout the days and weeks of our lives. The heart of community at St. John’s is the Life Group, a group of 3-4 parishioners who commit to praying and sharing together regularly. Through Life Groups, we seek to go deeper into the truth of Christ, seeking the ways that the knowledge and love of God transform us through our presence with one another.
Mission of Life Groups
Believing that the mission of God is shalom—completeness, soundness, welfare, peace—and because God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit form a community of shalom, we are called to incarnate a community of shalom:
To know and love God
To know and love ourselves
To know and love our brothers and sisters
To know and love our neighbors.
Living out shalom in every aspect of our lives requires going deeper in our relationships with each other. We need a balance of encouragement and challenge in a context of love and faithfulness. Our network of Life Groups enables us to put this into practice.
