In the beginning, God created a human. And in God’s sin-free, beautiful world, only one thing was declared not good; that the human was alone. This isn’t just the story of marriage; it’s the story of humanity. We’re made in the image of our God who exists in Trinity–God exists in divine community.
We were created for community. And because our Father is generous, he’s given us one of the most essential, fun, and life-changing relationships for community: friendship.
Check out the study’s trailer:
In the six-week study Not Alone, we’re going to talk all about friendship: why we need friendship, biblical examples of friendship, and the pitfalls, challenges, and joys of friendship. We’re going there–talking about toxic relationships and boundaries, and how to rebuild broken trust. But most of all, we are going to celebrate the encouragement, wisdom, fun, and love that can only come through friends.
Over the six weeks spent studying together, we’re going to talk about friendship. We’re going there in all aspects of friendship:
- Week One: What Are Friends For? A Theology
- Week Two: Friendship in the Bible
- Week Three: The Profile of a Friend
- Week Four: Toxic Friendship
- Week Five: How to Rebuild Broken Trust
- Week Six: The Unique Ministry of Friendship
Not Alone is our very first
