From the beginning God intended for people to thrive in relationships and community. In Genesis 2:18 God said that is was not good for man to be alone. People were created with a desire and need for community. We find support, friendships, and accountability in community. It is where we grow and build relationships. But the question is where do we find this community? Some look for community in sports, others in their jobs, and while these can be good places to find community, Scripture points to a better community. A community that builds people up. One that lightens the load of everyday struggles. One that points people to the source of true wisdom, peace, and love, that is Jesus. This community is the church. We see in Scripture the early church establish this community that understood the need to learn, fellowship, serve and worship God together. 
At Pleasant Hill we want people to GROW IN COMMUNITY. And we have a few different ways for people to do that. 
1. Corporate Worship Services: 
Corporate worship is vital to the life of a believer. It is the opportunity during the week for believers to take a moment away from their busy schedules and come together with other believers and praise God through song and biblical teaching.
2. Small Group Discipleship: 
Small group discipleship is a chance to dig a little deeper in the Scripture with other believers. It provides a couple of things. First, it give opportunity to ask questions we don’t get to ask during a corporate worship service. It is the chance to further discuss Scripture and come to an even clearer understanding. It is nice to know that we can wrestle with different passages together. Second, it provides accountability. The Christian life is not easy. We have so many different things pulling us in many different directions. Small group discipleship provides a small community that can hold us accountable so that we don’t allow temptations or sin or busyness to keep us from growing in our relationship with God and living out the mission of God to make other disciples. 
3. Serving Together: 
The church was never intended to simply meet in a building. It is the hands and feet of Jesus. We are called to serve those around us. It is an even greater witness to a world that longs for community and unity when we serve together.
