We’re all made to live in community. But today we find ourselves living increasingly isolated lives. As we further disconnect from other people, we lose not only the support of community we need, but we also lose the sense of fulfillment in Christ that God intended community to encourage. In this sermon, we’ll explore some ways we find community, and we’ll see how that affects our relationship with God and with other people.

How do you define community? How is it different from connection?

Read 2 Corinthians 5:17-20. How does Paul express the idea of community in the ministry of reconciliation?

Read Genesis 1:26. What does it mean for God to exist in community? What does it mean for God to create us in His image?

Read Isaiah 43:7. What does it mean to be made for the glory of God? How does your community fit with this purpose?

How can you move from pursuing purposeless connection to pursuing purposeful community?
