"When morning came, [Jesus] called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles...(Luke 6:13)."
After returning from a time connecting upward with The Father, Jesus called twelve people into his first small group. Why? Mark's Gospel explains simply, "that he might be with them (Mk. 3:14)." Jesus understood that we were created to be related. So, he drew people IN, to build strong relationships with each. This was the INward dimension of his relational life; and it should be ours too.
At Compass Church, we encourage everyone to plug IN. This is why our motto is: "Navigating Life Together." We want to do life together, just like Jesus did. We encourage this by offering events and activities that make it easy to connect. Breakfasts, potlucks, picnics, parties, Sunday School classes and small groups are all ways we connect inwardly.
The best ways to go IN, deep, are with our Life Together Groups and Huddles. You can find more information about these elsewhere on this site. Or, you may pick up a brochure at our Information Center. Or, talk to our Small Group Coordinator, Kelly Urban.
