Third Sunday of Kingdomtide-Sept 16

13 Sep

Small group ministry-A The days after Pentecost were days of learning what it meant to follow Christ in a community of believers as Christ would have them live. They ministered to each other like a family and shared their possessions with those in need. Our society values isolation and the church has fallen prey to it. As a result, many members do not know other members well enough to be open and honest so little socialization occurs in large gatherings. Churches need to make a big effort to help members get to know each other. In the past, pot luck suppers were a place where people got to know each other but few churches today organize social times. Many churches today that still have social times are going to catered meals and eating at restaurants but that is only available to those who can afford them and little socialization occurs. Therefore the church needs to organize small groups to help members get to know each other and learn to live like Christ would have them live. (See “Living Presence” in “Rebuilding the Kingdom”) for developing a small group ministry)
