Watch Pastor Jeff Harris’ sermon from Sunday, December 27, 2015
“Act Like Jesus: Biblical Community”
https://youtu.be/g_kpglZI-TA

Key Question
How do I develop healthy relationships with others?

Key Verse
All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 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, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. ~Acts 2:44-47 (NIV)

Why This Matters
The key to community is trust.
It’s not the churches job to disciple your kids.
Life with others with Jesus, do you have that?
Community requires us to surrender our fears and expectations.
