that relationships thrive
in an environment of intimate connection, common experience,
and genuine sharing, our small groupsor Community groups,
as we call themprovide a way for people to plug in to
the larger community of Belmont, and to know and be known
our culture encourages isolation, we place tremendous value
on community living. We believe that as we put our energies
together, we become more than the sum of our parts. We become
positioned to do the very thing Jesus commanded us-to grow
in our capacity to love and to invest in the lives
Community groups at Belmont serve as a place for friendship, pastoral
support, expression of the gifts, and leadership developmentjust
to mention a few of their many purposes.
Bible reminds us
that we need each other.
Because none of us is sufficient on our own, we desire everyone
to live in community. Joining with a small number of individuals,
couples, or families experiencing similar life experiences
builds a vital link between people desiring to enhance their
dependence on God. Supported by mutual prayer, the study of
Scripture, and the wisdom and compassion of those making similar
journeys, our daily challenges come into perspective. Walking
together, we're able to stay the path and join hearts in support
of a shared passion to serve both inside and outside of the
church. Relationship, meeting needs, putting faith into action,
and serving beyond ourselves is the hallmark of Community Life.
Church has many small groups meeting throughout the
greater Nashville area.
