why small groups are important
We never know how important our connections may be. In small groups we have an opportunity to create lasting connections with God’s people. These friendship can help us grow in the spirit when we invest ourselves in a small group.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.Ephesians 2:8-10
We ourselves are accepted into the body of Christ by faith according to Ephesians 2:8-10.
When we reach out to a small group God’s handiwork begins to show up in surprising ways.
At Cornerstone Lighthouse, we want you to grow in your relationship with Jesus. By joining a small group, you’ll have intentional relationships with others and together you will learn biblical truth. As you live out these truths, the love of Christ will be shown to those in your circle of influence.
