Philippians 3:12B

Stretching Around  


  • We are made for community.  


So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

Genesis 1:27

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”

Genesis 2:18


  • Relationships centered around Jesus are best for us.  


Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts

Acts 2:46

Hebrews 10:24-25
