Community of Love

The home we grow together

What is COOL

COOL (Community of Love) is a small community group where Christians (and non-Christians) meet regularly for friendship, accountability, study, prayer, laughter, and occasionally tears. Community group is an essential expression of every church. It’s a place where we learn more about Jesus. It’s a place where we wrestle with the truths of the Bible and encourage one another toward the life that God intends for us.

Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
(Proverbs 13:20)

Why Join COOL

The God of the Bible is a Trinitarian God who is one and three persons: Father, Son, and Spirit. God has made us in His image, which means we are made for community and friendship. When we are not living in a community we would suffer because life in a sinful world is too complex and tempting to journey alone. Therefore, a community group is a place where we can live in relationship with one another through the ups and downs of life.

UNITY IN HEART

The key word here is "together." God created us to be in community. It is certainly true that we can have a personal relationship with God, but it is easy for us to forget that we also have a "corporate" relationship with God. In other words, when we gather together in worship we aren't just a bunch of separate individuals, we are a community called by God to be his people in this place at this time.

GROWING TOGETHER

When we associate in the company of people with worldly morals, we run the risk of mimicking their behaviors, their language, and their habits. As such, it is critical that we are careful whom we form relationships with. True Christian friends will build each other up emotionally, spiritually, and physically, because of the shared trust and acceptance. As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

WINNING SOULS

This is the Great Commission, the Bible says, "How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!". The warmth of love and care of the Community of Love is a very effective tool to introduce the Gospel to many others. People will be able to see love of Jesus in all individuals of Community of Love. There is something about strength in unity as Jesus sent the apostles out two by two.

MEETING FORMAT

How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity!
(Psalm 133:1)
