“IN” Opportunities [Up. In. Out.]

By Nate Kugel on September 16, 2016

At Bloomingdale Church we believe that a healthy church and a healthy spiritual life is built on relationships of “Up, In, Out.”

UP – A REAL GOD CONNECTION THAT HAPPENS DAILY
IN – RELATIONSHIPS THAT HELP ME GROW IN MY FAITH
OUT – SERVING AND HELPING OTHERS FIND JESUS AS LORD

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

If you’re looking for an opportunity to join a faith community that spurs you on to spiritual maturity, consider these “IN” groups.
