Whether you are in college, commuting, on a gap year, in trade school, working, or still figuring out what the Lord is calling you to, you are invited to be part of the Fairfax College community!
Fall college groups are starting with a kickoff event on September 18. You deserve community and we can’t wait to get connected with you.
To be present means that we commit to making our small group a priority. We allow margin in our schedules, other commitments, and our emotional margin to be fully present as part of a group throughout the week.
Throughout his ministry, Jesus offered an open invitation to all who were seeking to know him: “Come and you will see” (John 1:39). The Gospel is inclusive, not exclusive. As disciples of Jesus, we invite and welcome others to come and see Jesus for themselves and invite them to be a part of our family.
We don’t follow a Jesus who had a neat and tidy life, but a crucified Jesus. As His followers, we embrace our weakness, surrender our pain and our struggles, and express our fullest emotions. We welcome vulnerability and invite others into our lives
Following Jesus isn’t just an event on Sunday, but a way of life. As disciples of Jesus we make being with Jesus, becoming like Jesus, and living out His mission of restoration a way of life. Together, in community we are learning how to practice the Way of Jesus.
Jesus said the world would know His followers by their love for one another (John 17:20-23). Despite our differences, we are united by the love of Jesus. That’s why groups should be about intimately sharing our lives with one another, seeking to know one another’s stories, and praying for each other.
