A Shared Journey

“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 

In our exploration of our mission—Helping People Find Community—it’s crucial to understand the significance of this journey. Finding community is not just about filling a void or attending events; it’s a shared experience that enriches our lives and strengthens our walk with God. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 beautifully captures the essence of the importance of companionship. 

Here are a few ways we can help people find community: 

Create welcoming spaces where individuals feel accepted and valued. The first step to finding community is often feeling a sense of belonging. A warm and inviting atmosphere fosters connections. 

Facilitate small groups and connect opportunities that allow individuals to engage in more intimate settings. These settings provide a platform for meaningful conversations, shared experiences, and deeper relationships. 

Emphasize the value of authenticity within the community. When individuals feel safe to be themselves, genuine connections form. Encourage vulnerability, openness, and a culture of acceptance. 

Foster connections through shared interests and activities. Whether it’s through common hobbies, passions, or goals, finding community becomes more natural when individuals have shared experiences. 

Establish support networks within the community. Just as Ecclesiastes reminds us, having someone to help us up when we fall is invaluable. Encourage a culture of mutual support and care. 

As we embark on this shared journey of helping people find community, let’s recognize that it’s not just a program or an initiative—it’s a transformative experience that brings joy, support, and fulfillment. In community, we discover that we are not alone; we are part of something greater than ourselves.
