Practicing Restoration: 9 Practices To Pursue Jesus Together
Over the next month, we’re unpacking 9 practices that will move us towards Jesus together as a Church. This week, we’re looking at the 2nd set of practices: Practices of Community. These practices help us continue to abide in the presence of God, who is already present and at work among us.
Gather regularly in a community group to share a meal, share my story, and grow in faith. Find out more about community group opportunities at http://www.restorationlex.com/connect
Regularly connect with 1-2 friends to be vulnerable through confession, repentance, and encouragement. Find a few friends and go deeper together in following Jesus. Find a “3 am phone call” friend.
