In the last 25 years, the average American has gone from having six close friends, to just two close friends. A full 25% say, today, they do not have a close friend. What happens when that becomes, not a rarity, but common place? Friendships provide encouragement, comfort, shared celebration, and genuine connection – something that seems so elusive in our fast-paced culture.
Friendships provide encouragement, comfort, shared celebration, and genuine connection – something that seems so elusive in our fast-paced culture. As a church, we believe that no one should do life alone. We believe in shared grace, that in connected relationships we can experience the faithfulness and grace Jesus offers. We believe in authentic relationships. Every single person wants and deserves to be needed and known.
This Sunday, January 31, right after church, we’re hosting the Groups Connection Lunch. Whether you’ve been around Commonway for a week, a month, or years, this is the easiest and best way to connect with other people and begin building authentic relationships.
The Connection Lunch, hosted at the Innovation Connector, will be a laid back, casual opportunity to meet some other people looking to get into a small group, learn more about what being part of a small group entails, and having a chance to meet some of the group leaders at Commonway. All of this over a tasty lunch and giving you the freedom to decided what group is the right fit for you and taking the next step at your own pace.
If you’re looking to get connected, want to develop community, or explore what authentic relationships look like, we’d love for you to join us. Just send a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make sure you’ve got a seat at the table.
