Why We Gather
One of the most common questions we receive is: “Why do you gather every week? What’s the point?” This is a difficult question to give a short answer for, but I start by saying, first off, God told us to continue gathering with one another.
"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
The hard part in explaining “why we gather,” is explaining how it impacts you through the small things. Our lives can move at such a fast pace, but amazing things happen if we can get ourselves into the habit of gathering together with our church family every week and allow a time for us to slow down. Instead of being drained, you will find yourself encouraged and loved. You will find yourself smiling and full of hope.
Honestly, gathering impacts every person in their own unique and special way. God always seems to reach people individually for what that person needs right in that moment. Since God works so personally, it’s difficult to predict just how he will work in each and every one of us. However, if we gather together for the purpose of glorifying God, and spurring one another, and encouraging one another, God does promise that He is there with us. Just imagine what can happen if you are in the same room as the Creator of the universe. Pretty cool to think about. Don’t miss out on how gathering can impact you and your family.
