Community Groups at SDBC
Community groups are an important part of our church life at South Delta Baptist Church. We believe that God created us to be in community with one another, not walking the Christian life alone in isolation. Jesus himself modelled living in community to us through his relationship with the disciples. They ate together, fellowshipped together, and ministered together.
Hebrews 10:24-25 says, "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Here we see this design, God's desire for us to do life together and live in community in order to spur each other on. This is not to say that community is perfect and without challenge, as we are all human.
One of the members of SDBC has opened up about the fact that joining a community group was crucial for him in making connections at the church. He said, "Moving to a new country, new province, new city, or new church is difficult, even in the most ideal situations. Often the hardest part is connecting and getting to know people, even for those who have come to church for years. One solution is to join a community group."
Similarly, a leader of one of our community groups told us that, "It has been amazing to see how quickly a group of people who really didn't know each other very well, could open up their hearts and start sharing their lives together."
If you have not yet done so, please consider joining a community group here at South Delta Baptist Church.
