What we have MISSED this past year. 

These last few Sundays, we have seen an increase in people attending in-person services at 9:00, and 10:30 am at Gig Harbor High School. In addition, it has been fantastic to see friends and family make their way back to church.

A couple of weeks ago, several families came up to me after the service and said, “It is so good to be back. We have missed being in community.”

I would venture to say that during the Covid era, one of the consequences of social distancing, wearing masks, and avoiding social gatherings has been the lack of community that is vital to our mental health. Intellectually we have known that isolation is not good, but now our experience this past year proves that to be true in our lives.
“We have missed being in community” is really a declaration echoed in the very first book of the Bible. “It is not good for man to be alone” Gen. 2:18

As we move forward with HCC 2.0, the value of community has become a big priority. We have been a church WITH small groups, but now as we recalibrate for the post-Covid era, we will become a church OF small groups. What is the difference?

As a church WITH small groups being in community was an option. When we become a church OF small groups, community is essential and necessary. Our leadership will make that shift this year as we continue to “help people find and follow Jesus.” The first step is for us to identify leaders who will become connectors with the priority of leading small communities. Will you join us?

*Also, as a community of Jesus followers, we will be celebrating Communion as we conclude our series “Five Wise Choices”, Sunday, February 6th, at 9:00 and 10:30 am.
