"So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another" (Rom. 12:5).
It is such a blessing to be a part of the people of God! When we are added to His body we are brought into fellowship with each other (Ac. 2:42). Within the church we have a special bond that we don't have with anyone else. We share many things as Christians, but the one unifying factor in all of our lives is our Savior. It is through Him that we are called from all backgrounds and walks of life to experience the love of God. Yet, it isn't always easy getting to know each other just on Sundays and Wednesdays. The early church met in each other's houses on a daily basis (Ac. 2:46) and that shared communion brought them even closer.
In order to facilitate that kind of hospitality, the church in Atlanta organizes what we call our "care groups." All of those participating in this fellowship are organized into small groups every six months and each month those groups meet in each other's homes to share a meal, fellowship, and a study of God's word. We always love and encourage new members to participate in our care groups. It's a great way to get to know each other and increase our love of God and the church!
