Sunday Discipleship Communities

Discipleship Communities
Winter 2023

January 8th - February 26th | Sundays @9:50 am.

On Sunday mornings we gather in discipleship communities for the purpose of advancing our faith and commitment through instruction and participative learning. As Sunday morning classes begin to move in the direction of a semester/quarter arrangement that emphasizes the broad categories of Beginnings, Bible, Beliefs, and Behaviors, we will be offering the following four new classes during the first quarter of the winter semester. Pre-registration is required for participation.



Paths to Spiritual Formation – The Bible contains some compelling encouragements that directly connect to our spiritual formation. When examined and followed with focus and determination and supported by the Holy Spirit’s empowerment, believers will greatly enhance their ability to achieve spiritual growth and exist for God’s glory. Within this context, this class will examine some of the key biblical passages that promote a life of spiritual commitment and transformation.

Deliberate Desperation – Henry David Thoreau was quoted as saying, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” While we understand this to be accurate, we also know that the Gospels contain a variety of accounts in which common people approached Jesus in desperation and placed their hope in Him. This class will examine some of these moving stories with the intention of reflecting on how we need to be deliberate about channeling our personal desperation in the direction of Jesus.

SHAPE – The Bible dedicates several key passages to the subject of spiritual gifts, with the understanding that every believer possesses at least one gift, and that these gifts are to be employed for the purpose of bringing glory to God and edification to the body of Christ. Within this context, this informative and interactive SHAPE class will address five key elements, which include Spiritual Gifts, Heart (passion), Abilities, Personality, and Experiences to assist one in understanding their personal SHAPE and best fit for ministry engagement.

One at a Time – A common question we all ask as we journey through life is "Am I making any difference in this world?" Without a doubt, Jesus is the person who has made the greatest difference in all of history. And if we study the story of His life as recorded in the Gospels, there is one approach that captures how Jesus had such a profound impact upon others. Simply stated, this phrase is "one at a time." This video-based and discussion-driven class will explore the primary method that Jesus used to encounter others and to offer encouragement for us to follow His example.
