What is community?

Webster defines community:

  1. a group of people who reside in a specific locality, share government, and often have a common cultural and historical heritage.
  2. a locality inhabited by such a group
  3. a social, religious, or occupational group sharing common characteristics or interests
  4. the public

But, we’re going to look deeper.

Community is so much more than a group of like minded people who dwell in a specific region.

It’s about connection.  Taking risks and getting to know your neighbors.  Building intentional relationships.  Reaching out.  It’s about how we do life together.  Knowing that you belong – that you are not anonymous or alone.  No matter your background or economic status.
