"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." (Hebrews 10:24-25)
The Bible gives two specific reasons for committing to be part of a close-knit family of believers—that we would be encouraged, and that we would encourage others. God designed the church to be the place where we receive and give accountability to persevere in our faith amid a darkening culture; with this powerful goal in mind, the Bible calls believers to love, encourage, and stimulate one another to good works until Christ returns. This mandate is what drives Adult Fellowship Groups at Grace Church.
