How do you cultivate community? That’s a good question and one that I have started exploring just in the last few months thanks to you guys. I need to be more affectionate and caring without being fake. That may be easy for some people but I am a very private person and it’s hard for me.
My group of friends are marvelous. We met because of a creative side in all of us!
We love to get together and make cards.
We meet on a monthly basis at each other’s homes! There is a small meal and we exchange cards that we have made. Then, we work on our own individual projects…
Also, we help each other make party favors~
One of my friends has had two sons get married in two straight years. We got together
and made lovely wedding favors.

Our Group of Friends are truly a Christian Family. They are our St Peter Bible Study Group and the Schaumburg Christian Woman’s Club. When we lost our House they Helped us to Move into our Home we rented for 10 years, My Husband had an accident which his leg was almost amputated and his company went under, so we were supported on my Job only, our daughter was 14 at the time and when she turned 16 help support herself and contributed at home. Today I am proud of my young Woman who is Godly and responsible. We meet regularly with our Christian Groups for Bible Study, Christian Socials and attend each other’s Family events.
We feel the Agape love of Our Lord Jesus Christ each time we are
together, Praise God for Christian Friends and Christian Family
that are truly the Community of Christ.
Blessings and Hugs to all,
Jan Belzer Schaumburg,Illinois
I moved to a new town 4 years ago and am having a hard time making friends. I need to get out and volunteer and meet some people!
