That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ. Colossians 2:2
It’s no surprise to us that more and more reports are coming out to suggest that going to church makes people happier. Church improves lives for many reasons, but the main reason is that it brings people together. Healthy long-term relationships make life better. Being part of a network of good friends provides us with strength, confidence, and joy. Nothing else short of faith in Jesus gives us such incredible, life-altering blessings as being connected with other people. It’s our hearts desire to have everyone become of our church family, and to experience the blessings that come by connecting with others.
