Connect with Others through discipleship
Though each Christian has a personal relationship with God, that relationship is not individual or private. The Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation. We were made for community‚ relationship with God and with each other. Gospel-centered discipleship is a radical call amid a culture of mere attendance and casual involvement. The Bible calls us members of the body For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. with the expectation that we contribute to the body for the glory of God and the good of His people.
Gospel-centered community is a central means by which we make disciples, and small groups are the main avenue for us to realize this community. Our groups use Pastor Eric’s weekly Sunday message as their curriculum in the form of a small group study guide. This allows our faith family to corporately study together week to week. But our groups are more than just Bible study. They involve sharing mutual love, care, consistency and authenticity as we seek to adorn the person and work of Christ with our lives.
Our on-campus small groups meet weekly at the church for fellowship, care, accountability and study. They meet on Sundays and Wednesdays, contain various numbers of people and are made up of men and women from all generations and walks of life.
Our in-home small groups meet weekly in the homes of someone in their group to study and live life together. They meet on different days throughout the week, contain between 12 – 15 people and are made up of men and women from all generations and walks of life.
Hearing the voice of God is the most critical aspect in growing spiritually. Equip groups foster an environment that enables you to hear His voice. All of our classes are designed to help you hear from God. Equip Groups meet for a set number of weeks depending on the length of the study material. Setting aside a few nights to attend an equip group class will offer a chance to encounter the voice of God and introduce you to a new level of spiritual transformation.
Discipleship groups are groups of three and four people. They provide a more in-depth means of making disciples by using smaller more intimate environments where people can meet to study scripture with accountability. All of this on the basis of loving relationships. These groups are more organic in nature and revolve around different study materials and books.
