As people, we look for community in all places. In some places we establish something with a few features of community. Using Branson and Martinez’s six features of Community as our guide, you can see how easily disappointed we can be with other organizations which promise community. Many organizations have several of these features, but very few of them have all six.
We at St. Stephen’s are committed to growing Christian community, paying attention to how we demonstrate all six of these features in our life together. Please give some thought to how you can participate in building community within your church.
