Seattle is an ever growing city filled with people migrating from around the globe seeking opportunity and dreaming of new possibilities. However, Seattle is also a city of urban loneliness which is ironic considering that in our present day we have more tools for communication than ever before. We may have more connections but often with lesser depth and intentionality. It seems as though it is becoming more and more difficult to truly connect with one another.
It is for this reason we believe Community Groups are of growing importance—a place where you are known and can know others deeply. Community Groups are focused on helping us to know ourselves and know each other well. They are a place where we can listen to each others stories, interact with the world around us, and see how the God of the universe ties all of these points of connection together into a beautiful tapestry of life. Community Groups concentrate their efforts on breaking through the "Seattle freeze,” cultivating relationships, and working to make our city a better place to live.
