Discipleship Groups

Church isn’t just a worship service on Sunday morning; it’s sharing life, praying for one another, and helping each other. It’s digging deeply into God’s Word and reflecting on how to live it out together. It’s encouraging and challenging one another to grow as children of God as he transforms us by his Spirit.  And it should propel us into the world as ambassadors of the King.  We believe this happens best in smaller gatherings that meet regularly.  Find out how you can get involved!

From Mar-Apr many Discipleship Groups will be studying the book, "God is Closer Than You Think" by John Ortberg, following along the Sunday morning message series. Books and study guides are available at the Ministry Table on Sundays.

May-June we will begin a relationship series called, "Guard Your Heart." Check this site soon for upcoming resources!

Here are addition resources for discipleship groups:

1.) How to do an Inductive Bible Study 

2.) Instructions for a Group Covenant 

3.) Sample Group Covenant 

4.) 6 Questions for Bible Studies

Discipleship groups meet throughout the week, both in the daytime and in the evening.  To sign up for a group, please contact Gail Chinn at karygail@yahoo.com.
