Join House Church
19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
In this new season, Pastor Sam preaches on challenging yourself to join a house church. We have just reshuffled our house churches and it is all new beginnings for each and everyone of us. We are all starting together and we encourage you to plug in and join the community in your walk with God.
If you are plugging in to a house church for the first time, Pastor Sam also charges you to dedicate yourself to the commitment for 5 consecutive weeks and see what God does in your life.
4 Reasons to stay plugged in
1. You will build life long relationships (in Christ) Acts 5:42, Psalm 133:1
God's family and community is a gift and you get as much of it as much as you put in. The more you share your struggles and hardship, the more you encounter God with his family and the more rewarding it is for you. No matter where you are, you are always connected to this Christian family.
2. You will be challenged and you will grow Proverbs 27:17, Hebrews 10:24
There are all sorts of life circumstances that "make" it seem as though you don't have time or energy to commit to a house church. In house church, we are given the opportunity to be vulnerable and share what we go through in a protected haven. We also give each other permission to counsel each other so that we may hold each other accountable and we grow as a result of that.
3. You will be healthier James 5:14-16
You will be stronger and more protected. We pray for each other to cover each other so that we don't have to rely on ourselves and our own efforts to achieve something or to overcome our difficulties. God also heals us when we gather to pray and having a community that has strong faith helps to cover us when we are susceptible to attacks.
4. We serve together
All ministries in SPSG are important and none would function without the church serving in different capacities. While we are fortunate enough to have this space for our Sunday service, eventually we will have our own place and there will be more avenues to serve and the house churches would be instrumental in serving our communities.
