Community Groups Spring Mini-Session

Posted on


Having just wrapped up our study in James, our Community Groups will begin a new spring mini-session next week focusing on What Is a Healthy Church Member? by Thabiti M. Anyabwile, pastor at Anacostia River Church in Washington, DC, council member of the Gospel Coalition, and a lead writer for 9Marks Ministries

"What Is a Healthy Church Member?" takes its cue from Mark Dever’s book, "What Is a Healthy Church?," which offered one definition of what a healthy church looks like biblically and historically. In this work, Anyabwile attempts to answer the natural next question: “What does a healthy church member look like in the light of Scripture?”

God intends for us to play an active and vital part in the body of Christ, the local church. He wants us to experience the local church as a home more profoundly wonderful and meaningful than any other place on earth. He intends for his churches to be healthy places and for the members of those churches to be healthy as well. This book explains how membership in the local church can produce spiritual growth in its members and how each member can contribute to the growth and health of the whole.
