    How to Find a Solid Community Group

    Project Inspired started a group specifically for the Girl Talk questions, which typically come from the Girl Talk chat wall on Facebook. Click here to safely join our chat group.

     

    This week, a PI Girl mentioned that she is seeking strong community, but can’t seem to find her group. Do you struggle with finding the right like-minded believers who can keep you accountable and who you can grow with? I will address this with some ideas for you that include getting involved in your local church, starting your own girls’ Bible study group and praying on your own to ask God to guide you to the right place.

     

    As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17)

     

    God desires that we abide and grow in Him, in His Holy Word, and that we sharpen one another by keeping each other built up in the faith, in prayer and through accountability (John 15). We really need the family of God to lean on through trials and through the good times. We need to make a point to lean on one another and to ask questions, dig into scripture and put our roots down deep.

     

    Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. (Colossians 2:7)

     

    Every church should have a community or group for members to connect. You can ask your youth pastor for a Bible study group, or at your school there may be a Christian club on campus. I encourage you to start your own study group if your church doesn’t have one; you can just do a Bible study with a roommate or best friend. There are many different resources where you can order Bible studies at Lifeway.com—click here.

    You can do a Bible and coffee fellowship group with some girlfriends and consistently meet and pray. It is so powerful when you come together with a group of people and you ask for requests and then you also see God answer prayer. Make sure to keep an account with each other on how each person is personally growing, and follow up with personal prayer requests throughout the week.

     

    Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

    The Bible teaches us that in the multitude of counselors there is wisdom, but it also teaches us that we can encourage one another with the Word. Do you consider yourself a leader or being capable of leading a study? If not, do you know someone who is? I am praying you can really find one to five or more people to do this with. I would say five or less is best because you can really focus on these people and keeping one another held in prayer and in confidence.

    PI Girls, do you have any other suggestions or ideas in how to find the right community Bible group?
