We were actually made for it. But community doesn't just happen! You have to be intentional about it, and this is the very reason we offer Life Groups here at Emmanuel. Groups are safe places where people can ‘let down’ and truly enjoy the company of each other. Groups are a smaller setting of friends who continue to discover Jesus, together. Groups are people who can laugh or cry together, and in the end, know the people around you have your back in prayer. Jesus understood that life happens in circles, not in rows ... He had his own circle of 12! We encourage you to dive into a Life Group this semester! Find one that works for you, commit to it, and watch what God will do in your life.
