They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. (Acts 2:42-47)
This New Testament passage presents a compelling picture of the kind of dynamic community that God wants His people to enjoy. Throughout the Bible we learn that we were designed by God for close relationships – relationships where we can encourage one another, love one another, bear one another's burdens, build one another up, and so much more.
At Trinity, we believe that the best environment for developing these kinds of transformational relationships is within a small group community. Small groups provide a complementary experience to our larger group gatherings on Sunday, and so we encourage everyone to join a small group where we all can grow deeper in our relationships with God and with other people. If you have any questions about our small groups, or if you would like help finding the group that is right for you, please contact Doug at the church office (927-4384) or send him an email.
