The Necessity of Us



Ben Stuart continues in our series, Church People, by showing us how the Bible emphasizes the importance of community, teaching us how to value and prioritize a healthy community in our own lives.

Key Takeaway

When people see real, authentic community, especially in a community-starved generation like ours, they will be drawn to it.

  1. We were made to connect with one another.
  2. We know we want deep community, but are we willing to do what it takes to get it?
  3. As we meet together in community, we share and support, bringing our burdens to the Lord and processing them with others. This is where deep healing can occur.
  4. Community is an investment, and you tend to get out of it what you put into it.
  5. Jesus forged a community that always has a door open to invite others into it. It isn't an exclusionary community.


"For many of us, the anxiety we feel is because we don't know the peace and the comfort of being tucked in deeply with a community."
