It’s a gift!
LIFT has many blessings to offer, but one of the best ways we can be blessed is by getting involved in a simple church! Come on people, ITS FREE, and they’re available almost every night of the week. We can be fulfilled spiritually, by meeting weekly with other believers, to encourage, uplift and motivate one another to live the life that God has called us to!
You know what else you can get for free at Simple Church? Food. Yes food. The way to many of our hearts, some of our simple churches get together weekly over snacks, who says we’re too old for crackers and juice???
God Has Called Us To Serve
God repeatedly calls us to serve others in the Bible. In Ephesians 2:10 it says, “It is God himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others.” We live lives to serve others and by doing that give glory to God and His Kingdom. By leading a simple church we can play a major part in reaching others and showing God’s love to the people in our schools, workplaces, and cities. There is no excuse not to!
You Don’t Need To Know It All
Leading a Simple Church can seem like a daunting task. But its not! You don’t need to feel like a Biblical wizard to lead a simple church. It’s not about preaching at people, its about gathering together to grow and learn as a community and being willing to facilitate that. Nothing more complicated than that!
Everyone loves having friends, and what a better way to possibly meet some of the best friends you may ever have than coming out to a Simple Church! If you’re coming into University this is a great way for you to meet new people and get connected with other people who are in school or who can pass on some awesome experience too!
You Get To Pour Into Other People’s Lives And Be Poured Into!
Simple Church’s are designed for the purpose of creating community and fellowship in a smaller setting where communication and conversation comes easily! The bonus is the ability for us to be able to pour encouragement, prayer, and the love of God into other people’s lives, and allow for them to reciprocate. So. Cool.
Learn New Things
There is no better way to learn new things about the God we follow than meeting weekly outside of a Sunday service to investigate and discover His word in the Bible. A commitment to a Simple Church allows for a weekly time to grow with other believers and learn more about God.
Break And Balance.
Life can get tiring! With school, work, and hobbies, life is jam packed with stuff that needs doing. But setting aside specific time for Godly fellowship is the perfect way to take a break from the fast pace of the everyday. Sometimes our brains need a breather from the things that we are doing all the time.
Simple Church isn’t sitting in complete silence staring at each other. It’s FUN! Coming together to read the word, converse about God and what His word says, and praying for one another should never be boring. We can laugh, cry and truly enjoy the community that a small group of believers can give each other. Jesus was fun too ya know.
God Will Bless You
Being involved in a community of believers and making that commitment to lead a simple church is not something that leaves you empty handed. When we choose to give of ourselves and buy into the vision of the kingdom, God blesses us! It says in Deuteronomy 30:16 “For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.”
