Most people have a lot of shallow relationships, but not a lot of deep friendships. LifeComs are intended for you to journey through life together with a small band of people that are headed in the same direction. Relationships are the glue that hold us through tough times.
People that can:
- Share your joys, sorrows, and burdens.
- Support you through the ups and downs of life.
- Shape and sharpen you to become more like Christ.
In a world of constant overwhelming input, the “curriculum” for LifeCom gatherings is not “just one more thing” competing with a bunch of other things for attention in your already capacity-filled brain. Rather, the content is simply a discussion centered around the Scriptures and themes from the weekly message. Instead of having one more thing to study and prepare for, you are enabled to ruminate on the message all week long and have the opportunity to discuss and apply it with others. Additionally, if you have children, they will also be learning the same “Big Idea” at their age-appropriate level, which equips families to continue the conversation at home every week.
Ultimately, the goal of LifeComs is not just to be here for our own good and the good of those in our group, but for the good of the wider community in which we live. Therefore, each LifeCom will adopt a “mission(s)” in the community that they will continuously serve, support, and pray for. This mission should be determined by each LifeCom’s unique passions and gifts and how they feel they can best bless the community.
