The next step in our journey is to follow direction in Jesus. Once we know Him, we must continue to follow Him and learn about His plan for our lives. We believe that God has a purpose for everyone on this earth, and that purpose can be realized if we know what it is and embrace it. Whether we like to admit it or not, we cannot make it on our own. Society is founded upon cities and communities, but they only thrive when everyone works together. We need community. Jesus knew this - that's why He started churches in the first place. It was never supposed to be rows of an exclusive club or organization. His original design began with circles of a faith community, and it allows us to help our city, lift one another up, and work alongside each other for God's kingdom.
There's always something exciting about being a part of something bigger than yourself. God has a plan for your life, but He also has a plan for NorthCity and for the entire city of Sun Prairie. As we follow His direction for our lives, we get to play a small part in His purpose for the community.
At NorthCity, we would love for you to be more than just another face in the crowd. Our CityGroups seek to engage people in circles instead of rows. It is a time where smaller groups meet in homes once a week, enjoy some food and each other's company. It's also a place where we can pray together, build relationships and learn more about God's purpose for us and our church.
When it's all said and done, FOLLOWING direction in Jesus is all about discovering His plan for us found in the Bible. There is no better way to accomplish this than in the context of community and loving others.
