Get connected this summer with growing in the Spirit!
As we find ways to “Be the church” in these unprecedented times, we know that if the Holy Spirit is guiding us, we will be faithful to Christ and his call in the world. So we will spend intentional time listening to the Spirit and how it challenges us to grow as disciples. We will take risks, explore creative ministries, and reach out to new people.
Each week you will be invited to:
All of the opportunities below are invitations to grow in your discipleship. Our Tuesday and Thursday Bible studies will follow the all church study. We invite you to participate in any of the opportunities for discipleship this summer, and to invite a friend to join you, as we practice social distancing to keep one another safe, but continue to grow together in our faith!
Simply check the box below if you are interested in participating in these classes and groups and we will be in contact with you!
If you have any questions, please reach out to Pauline Henry.
Thank you for registering for our Summer 2020 Discipleship Groups!

We long for more of Jesus because truly, He is our source of every good thing. So why does something as small as our phone or an app keep us from praying? Join us for 9 modules, tons of research, Scripture and real-life application as Valerie hopes to clear the fog and help you find clarity so you can become fluent in the most important and transforming conversation of your life."
