4. You will find a support group to stand with you in difficult times.
Your Small Group or Sunday School class provides excellent support in times of crisis, change, and stress. You´ll have a sense of stability and security knowing there are people who really care for you and are committed to standing with you. When someone loses a job, or a family member has an extended illness - these are practical needs that will be naturally taken care of through your Christian Community. Your group will coordinate the sharing of hot meals to be brought in when and if your family is in need. Many people in our church could testify that they would not have made it through a difficult time if it hadn´t been for the support of their brothers and sisters in Christ!
