Unfortunately, we don’t have any groups that dress up like this each week (but maybe that’s your mission from God to make happen here at Forefront!) Actually, that would be extremely creepy, forget that idea. Immediately. Alright, let’s move on…

There are a ton of reasons to be in a Gel Group. It’s about sharing life together. Learning the Bible together. Making time to be with others on a regular basis, but not just for kickin’ it… there are some specific reasons that help complete who God designed you to be and fulfill your mission as a follower of Jesus.

01. You will help the world see God’s love. Which is so cool, because so many people are desperate to experience that kind of life change. (John 17:23)

02. You have someone ready to help you carry the heavy burdens of life. This life is difficult anyways, and now as a group you can help one another. (Galatians 6:2)

03. God provides a place to learn how to do good towards others. Society is filled with people all about themselves, you can flip the script and make it about other people and loving them. (1 Thessalonians 5:15)

04. You are connected to a group of people who are less like a “group” and more like a “family.” (Colossians 2:2)

05. It’s a place to find encouragement and learn the wisdom of the Bible. Everybody needs encouragement when following God, it goes against every selfish thing we want. They’re your own personal cheerleaders! (Colossians 3:16)

06. You’ll follow the example of the early church as it was getting started. How cool is that?! (Acts 2:46)

07. You get to learn about the the greatest mission ever- and be united with a bunch of other people who want to make it happen. (Philippians 2:1-2)

08. You get to fulfill God’s command of honoring and loving others. In a culture where honor and love is dwindling, you can be an example of God’s love in the world. (Romans 12:10)

09. If you claim to follow Jesus, a sign of that is having community with not only God, but also with other people who follow Him. (1 John 1:6-7)

10. As the early church did, they had devotion to- gathering together, studying God’s word, and prayer. It was a weekly occurrence. It should be for you too. (Acts 2:42)
