Alone, none of us will follow Jesus the way we most want to. And community forms us more deeply than most things. And small groups of Christians can do a lot more together for others. For all these reasons and more, I’m delighted to announce the formation of the Coracle Community.
I want to invite you to consider joining a small group of people journeying together to help one another go deeper into God, live more fully who God has created each one of us to be, and do some good in the world. On the 2nd Wednesday of each month, we gather at Little Falls Presbyterian Church from 6:30-9:15 PM, to go deeper in our relationships with God and one another. Here is a basic outline of a Community Gathering:
6:30 — Soft start, conversation, reconnection (snacks provided, or feel free to bring your dinner!)
7-7:20 — Welcome and brief introductions, brief reflection, and pray
7:20- 8:20 — Small Group Time: sharing reflection papers (learn more on pp 12-13 of the Community Manual)
8:20-8:35 — Regather: corporate conversation about small group times
8:35-9 — Community Discussion: prompts will change month-to-month
9-9:15pm — Prayer
9:15pm — Hard Finish
Please feel free to email our Community Minister, Danny Nasry (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions and to get the link to join us next month.
Over these past couple of years, we’ve observed that people who appreciate Coracle often end up liking each other and are deeply blessed by spending more time together. Coracle is a place where people with strange integrations in their lives, minds, and hearts find a home and a safe place and community to dive into Christianity more deeply. People look to the Coracle Community as a place to be encouraged in holistic spiritual maturation, a place to go deeper into Christ, together, and moving out further for the Kingdom.
We’ve put together a manual of sorts for this community, exploring why Christian community matters, what the Coracle Community aspires to be, what it is and who it’s for, and the way and structure of how we meet together, and a brief history. If you’re at all intrigued, I encourage you read that HERE, or simply join us on a Wednesday evening (email email@example.com for more details)!
I’m excited about this new aspect of what Coracle offers. We’re trying to be attentive and faithful to the fact that God just keeps leading good people to Coracle who somehow are sharpened and encouraged by being together and finding great help in staying focused on what God is doing in our lives and how we can be of service to others. I’m curious to see how God will form us and use us, and where God takes us over time.
