“It takes a village.” That’s the old adage for raising kids, but we think it rings true for all of us. We all seek community in various forms. Whether it is coffee with a good friend, drinks with co-workers, a new softball team – whatever we do to remind ourselves we aren’t in this all alone. But for some reason, when it comes to the big things in life, we shut down and think we are the only people dealing with our issues, and that if we just tough it out everything will get better. The truth is that is does take a village – we all are still growing up, and we need help doing it. Our culture promotes individualism, but the Bible repeatedly calls us to be people who genuinely share life together and build one another up.
We do this in several ways at Covenant Creek, but we have found the best way for us to build each other up is in what we call “house churches.” House churches are smaller groups that gather together outside of church for two things – food and community. We meet in someone’s home, share a meal together, and just spend time talking about the things in life that really matter. It is something you have to experience first-hand to really get a sense of, so we just ask people to give it a chance – try it out for a month and see what you think.
We have folks at our church with one specific goal – to help you and your family get connected in a house church. Just send us an email and let us know who you are. We will take it from there.
