CONNECT with others in church family

Dare to love and to be a real friend. The love you give and receive is a reality that will lead you closer and closer to God as well as those whom God has given you to love.
Henri Nouwen

God not only longs for you to have a personal relationship with Him, he also wants you to CONNECT with and be a part of a genuine and loving community of fellow Christians.  Christ's love makes it possible for you to be known and to know others, to be loved and to love, to resolve conflict effectively, and to move outward together in faith.

Christian fellowship is a key aspect of the Christian life -- yet many Christians fail to ever experience true Christian fellowship. Believers in Christ are to come together in love, faith, and encouragement.  Many experience this fellowship through local church membership, small group involvement and one-on-one discipling relationships
