Life Groups are an important part of Eastside and an important part of our walk as Christ Followers. During his time here on earth, Jesus invested heavily in community. One example of this can be found in Matthew 9:10 where it says, “And as Jesus reclined at a table in the house (Matthew’s house), behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were reclining with Jesus and his disciples.” The key word is easy to miss there… it says he was reclining. He was relaxing. He was enjoying himself. He was having conversation. He wasn’t teaching, or reading Scripture, or working… he was hanging out with old friends and new.
That’s our goal for Life Groups. Friends, enjoying time together, eating together, sharing life, caring for one another, praying for one another – and yes, studying His Word is part of it too! The main intention is to create environments where there is comfortability and trust – and where life long relationships are developed.
