Gospel CommunityThat every Seven Miler would be known well, deeply loved and sent as Jesus' missionary to the Kennebunks
WHAT IS A GOSPEL COMMUNITY?
A gospel community is a small group of Seven Milers who are learning to love and follow the real Jesus. Together.
WHAT AM I WALKING INTO WITH A GOSPEL COMMUNITY?
Dropping in at someone’s house for a meal or to hang with a bunch of people can sound wicked intimidating, especially to us New Englanders. We expect there’s probably some hesitation, nerves or questions about what to expect. Here’s a snapshot of some things that will down within the life of a Gospel Community (with the caveat that not all Gospel Community’s look and function the same!).
A TON OF FOCUS ON JESUS AND HIS GRACE.
We are imperfect people clinging to a perfect Christ. Without Jesus and his grace, we have no legs to stand. These are communities where we are learning to love, listen to, and lead each other toward Jesus and His grace, in all areas of life.
TIME IN THE SCRIPTURES.
Believing that God has spoken to us through the Scriptures, we’re pressing these words deep as they form and shape us as His people. This does not mean we always have set “bible study times.” But our life and conversations together are informed by the words that God has laid down for His people.
HONESTY, SAFETY, TIME
We’re all a mess. And that’s OK. No fascades. No games. No condemning, mocking, finger-pointing. We’re learning to increasingly to step out and walk in the light and freedom that Jesus offers, while confronting sin and working out our soul rehabilitation. Nobody is in a rush.
A FAMILY-LIKE ATMOSPHERE
We’re a diverse crew – young, old, wicked smart, not so smart, funny, intense, uptight. And we’re learning to share life together, as Jesus’ newly formed family. This means lots of meals, laughter, carrying burdens, cleaning messes, and growing together.
A LONGING TO LOVE, BLESS AND SERVE OUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS
We’re praying, talking and longing to bend our life and love outwards, towards our friends and neighbors in the Kennebunks that Jesus is sending us to.
