"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching." (Hebrews 10:24-25ESV)
"Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality." (Romans 12:10-13)
What is an Anchor Community?
An Anchor Community is a group of 6-12 people, who get together regularly to know Jesus more, worship Jesus together, and help each other follow Jesus on His mission. These people cultivate deepening relationships with each other in and through the gospel, and support each other as they carry the message of the gospel to to their friends and neighbors who do not know or believe the gospel of Jesus.
Why should you be part of an Anchor Community?
In response to Jesus, we are called to love the other members of our church, other Christians, and our neighbors who don’t know Jesus. Our communities are one of the ways that Anchor creates intentional space to serve and care for each other and invite our friends and neighbors to spend time with Jesus’ people.
Anchor Communities are a method for pursuing our call as one body to:
• Help each other know, love, and worship Jesus
• Proclaim the truth of Jesus’ gospel to Seattle
