Belonging. God intended it. People long for it. In fact, people are wired to belong…to be a part of a larger group. It’s the way they are made. Consider…
God desires a group of people to draw near to Him.
…you are a chosen people. You are a kingdom of priests, God’s holy nation, his very own possession. This is so you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 nlt
Jesus died so you can draw near to God.
[Jesus] gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing what is right. Titus 2:14 nlt
It is within the local church that God chooses to involve us in His work. God longs not just for believers but for belongers. That is why the Bible says: Now you are no longer strangers to God and foreigners to heaven, but you are members of God’s very own family…and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian. (Ephesians 2:19 tlb)
THF Connection is about the journey of belonging.
The model for belonging was established from the beginning. As the church was forming in the first century, Acts 2:37-47 chronicles how their shared relationship with Jesus caused those first Christians to share their lives with one another.
THF Connection is our way of following the biblical model of integrating – connecting – our lives into the life of the church community. We recognize the priority of participation…not simply as a one-day event but a consistent commitment in the life of a believer.
We have made THF Connection more than just a ‘class.’ It is the rendezvous point for a journey with others who are wanting to take the same pilgrimage with Jesus that you are. THF Connection is a six-week journey (two hours a week) where we talk about the Faith Jesus delivered, the church Jesus created, and the hope Jesus left us. You will learn a lot, but more importantly, you will experience much to equip you and to be your companion on this journey.
THF always desires to make the church experience meaningful and beneficial to its members. Connecting with The Heights is as easy as A-B-C…
