Why do we want you to join a Small Group?
We at Vineyard Fullerton believe Small groups are important for the simple reason that fellowship & community is important.
Many christians today, however, feel that fellowship or small group participation is optional—something they do only when they have free time after work, family errands, friends, & nothing else happening that week.
We believe fellowship is basic to what it means to be a christian.
The Bible teaches that once we accept Christ, we are not only reconciled to God, but we are also relationally united with other believers in what’s called the body of Christ. “Just as each of us has one body with many members…so in Christ we who are many form one body & each member belongs to all the others” (Romans 12:4,5).
There are countless verses telling us how to relate to each other & the phrase “one another” alone appears over 60 times:
“…love one another…” (1 John 4:7)
“honor one another…” (Romans 12:10)
“…agree with one another…” (1 Corinthians 1:10)
“be patient, bearing with one another…” (Ephesians 4:2)
The christian life is meant to be lived in the context of fellowship. Unfortunately, it’s hard to experience real fellowship at our weekend worship gatherings.
While our weekend worship gatherings are a very important part of our church life-- it’s at our small group meetings during the week that we can experience fellowship.
Fellowship with other christians is vital to your spiritual health & growth.
If you are not yet involved in a small group, we would urge you to join one & make time for this in your life.
SIGN UP. Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings for 10 weeks.
