Prayer_group.jpgWHAT IS A HOME GROUP?

We find in the Bible that the first century Christians continued to meet together in homes and the temple courts. Today we do not have temple courts nor do we have town squares: we do have homes, parks and restaurants. After Jesus returned to the Father, the disciples also met in homes in Jerusalem. Wherever the Gospel was taken, they met in homes and in public when possible.

    In the book of Acts we find:  "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and prayer. Everyday they continued to meet together in temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their numbers daily those who where being saved." (Acts 2:42, 46,47) In another place; "After Paul and Silas came out of the prison, they went to Lydia's house, where they met with the brothers and encouraged them."  (Acts 16:40)

    The Apostle Paul sends greetings to churches in homes throughout his letters. In Colossians 4:15,16: Give my greetings to the brothers at Laodicea, and to Nympha and the church in her house. After this letter has been read to you, see that it is also read in the church of the Laodiceans and that in turn read the letter from Laodicea.

   There are many other references to church continuing to meet in the homes of the believers and in community places. This is the model we believe our Lord Jesus taught His disciples. We at Seminary Covenant Community have adopted this model of the first century church as our structure.

   We find that each House Church is a nurturing body and continues to grow in faith and love, under the authority of Seminary Covenant Community. We pray Gods blessing on you. We are here to be your family as you have need.
