DISCIPLE GROUPS ARE ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO GROW BEYOND SUNDAY MORNING
As we grow in God’s story, it’s important to connect with other believers. Disciple Groups provide space beyond Sunday mornings for us to grow. We want everyone to be a part of a Disciple Group that studies the Bible and prays, shares life and encourages one another, and loves others well.
TO GROW SPIRITUALLY, YOU HAVE TO BE CONNECTED RELATIONALLY.
Disciple Groups are a place where people have the opportunity to pursue authentic community and spiritual growth. When you join a group, you will spend time socializing, learning, and praying together. All you have to do is show up, join in, and be real.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A DISCIPLE GROUP?
Disciple Groups spend time together in three intentional ways as we live out our vision to Love God, Love Others and Make Disciples of Jesus Everywhere.
STUDY AND PRAY
Disciple Groups spend 30-45 minutes studying the Bibleor biblically-based content and responding in prayer.
SHARE AND ENCOURAGE
Disciple Groups spend 20-30 minutes sharing life and callingattention to Christ in our lives.
Disciple Groups spend a little bit of time every week and a lot of time occasionally praying for and serving those outside of the group.
WHO CAN JOIN A DISCIPLE GROUP?
While no single Disciple Group will be able to fully reflect the diversity of our congregation and community, we expect that every Disciple Group will be intentionally living out our vision to Love God, Love Others and Make Disciples of Jesus Everywhere.
