Keeping brothers and sisters faithful to Christ and His church is one of the primary functions of the body of Christ. Each of our members are placed in one of our four brothers keeper groups. Statistics show that Christians need a number of friends in the church in order to remain faithful. Since we have a real need for one another, it seems a little odd that this would need to be organized. Time has shown the benefit of activities in smaller groups foster this important need. These networks improve communication, involvement, fellowship and caring for one another.
The work accomplished by our Brothers’ Keeper groups is so important to us at Highland. Each BK group enjoys monthly fellowship meals together, and also periodically meet for devotional and recreational times. One of the primary functions of our BK groups is to provide assistance to those in our congregation who need help from time to time. Leaders with a “shepherding / caring” nature lead these groups.
And all who believed were together and had all things in common and they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people.
