    May 27: Friends With The World

                   

    The Proverbs might imply that hanging out with unbelievers is a bad idea, but the Bible is more nuanced than that. Rubbing shoulders with those who don’t know Jesus is the best way to share the hope that only the Savior can give. This message explores the way Christians can invest in those who do not yet believe in Christ.

    May 20: Choose Friends Carefully

    September 18:  Every Group Is A Community  
    Notes / Podcast / Video

    Being a Christian is more than a Sunday thing…because we are family. In order to grow as a family we need to grow in our faith and do life together. At St. Peter & The CORE this happens when we participate in Group Bible study and Life Groups. As a part of these groups members love one another, confess to one another, forgive one another, pray for one another, bear one another’s burdens, etc. Why? Because no one can be the kind of Christian God wants them to be by themselves. We need others to grow as God calls us to grow…and they need us too.
