Why is community so important to your spiritual life? God designed us that way. He wants to use other people to grow us and he wants to use us to grow other people. In Community, an eight-session, video-based, small group Bible study by Andy Stanley, you’ll explore how building deep relationships with the people in your small group and serving in the larger community around you will grow your faith. You’ll learn why your unique story matters … to God and to the people you do life with. This video can be used for personal reflection or for group discussion with the accompanying participant's guide.
