Leadership Community

And I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ’s sake. Philemon 6

What a blessing it was for us to be part of a multi-generational interactive Bible study, this past Sunday afternoon. A room full of Tysons small group leaders got to worship, study, and encourage one another by discussing application questions from the biblical text. If you were not able to be part of our time we want to strongly encourage you to come out for the next two Sundays from 3:30-5:00 in room 1410.

As we looked at Philemon, verses 1-7, our big take away that specifically relates to small group leadership was from Paul’s prayer for Philemon in v6. Paul prays that Philemon’s ministry and fellowship with the Colossian believers, who meet in his home, would be even more fruitful. How might this happen? Paul says this happens through a deeper knowledge of every good thing that Philemon has in Christ. What Paul means is the more Philemon comes to treasure all that God is for him in Christ, the more effective Philemon will be in his love and ministry to those he is with in community. That idea has so much relevance for us as small group leaders! Don’t miss the study and discussion this week. If you plan on coming, then please review verses 1-7 and spend a little time looking at verses 8-16.

Praying that God will make your leadership even more fruitful for the sake of the gospel!
