Will you join a vGroup?
Regardless of who you are, where you come from, or what you do, you need community. Simply put, we were not created to be alone. We were created to be in relationship with others.
Ultimately, we need community because God created us for community. In the very beginning, after creating the first man, God says “it is not good that the man should be alone” (Genesis 2:18). From there God creates the first woman, Eve, so that Adam would not be alone. This is the first picture we see of community. In the New Testament, Jesus surrounds himself with twelve disciples, showing the Church that community is important. The early Church saw the importance of community. In Acts 2:42–47, the Bible paints a picture of a community that spends time together, reads the Scriptures together, and ultimately takes care of one another.
Community is important for Vintage Church. We facilitate community through vGroups. vGroups are small groups of 10-20 people who meet regularly throughout the city for transformation, connection, and multiplication. We believe that in community people’s lives are transformed for the better. Transformation occurs primarily through Scripture and prayer. In our vGroups, almost every week we are having Scripture-based discussions as well as focusing on prayer. Through vGroups, connection also occurs, where people build lasting friendships. Connection occurs primarily through relationships and care. Finally, we believe that multiplication occurs through our vGroups. Through outreach as well as sending out other vGroups, people all around New Orleans and the world experience community.
Give vGroups a chance. Regardless of who we are, we all need community because we all need transformation, connection, and multiplication. Join a group. Change your life.
