  • Finding a Rhythm | Cedar Park Church
    communities realized their need to be intentional when it came to spiritual growth They developed a strategy called a rule or rhythm a statement of intentions that specifically defined a balanced pattern of how they wanted to live out the life of Christ An intentional rhythm has helped Christian communities throughout the years to move from just talking about the Christian life to actually practicing life together Rhythms are not meant to be onerous or guilt inducing They simply provide a flexible structure think about a trellis for your life that offers support and direction for growth A rhythm is simply an agreed upon pattern of when your group gathers and what your group does For example your Group s Rhythm may look like the following WHEN From October December we will meet every 1 st and 3 rd Sunday night of the month from 6 8pm at Doug s house WHAT Every week from 6 7 we will share a pot luck meal On the First Sunday on the month from 7 8 we will take turns sharing about our personal faith journeys On the Second Sunday of the month from 7 8 we will discuss the topics presented
