The goal of this ministry is to build disciples for Christ (Matthew 28:18-20) and to prepare men and women for ministry (Ephesians 4:11-13). We aim to learn and grow deeper in our knowledge of scripture and how Christian faith meets contemporary life. We also want to grow together as a church community; discipling and being discipled. We hope you'll join us Sunday mornings at 9AM as we wrestle with what it means to follow Jesus, together.
January 13 - January 20
Slange y va is a Gaelic toast which means: “to your health and salvation”. Prayer and faithfulness are essential to experiencing the fullness of a spiritually healthy life which God offers us. God didn’t send Jesus solely to save us from a physical death, but from the slow spiritual death we experience when we allow the busyness of life to choke out prayer and rest. Join us as we explore together how the spiritual disciplines we often neglect – Sabbath and attentiveness to God in all areas of life – are gifts from God to help us experience the fullness of life that God desires for us. We will learn about the monastic “Rule of Life”, which offers freedom from the busyness of life, and how to create a “Rule of Life” for ourselves.
January 27 - February 10
Have you opened all your Christmas gifts? Did you receive just what you wanted? Have you exchanged the things that didn't fit? In this three-week course we will talk about how beautiful Spiritual Gifts are; how they always fit and how just the right gifts can be opened to further His Kingdom. Join Doug and Lorna for three weeks; they will help you to unwrap your Spiritual Gifts and talk with you about how your gifts can be used to further His Kingdom.
February 17 - March 3
We rarely talk about mental illness in church; however, as many as 40% – 50% of those in church have suffered from or will suffer from mental illness. For those of us who have not experienced it, it makes us uncomfortable and unsure how to respond to it. For those of us who have experienced mental illness, it causes us to question our faith, to wonder where God is and why God allows such terrible illnesses to torment us. Whether you yourself suffer from mental illness, whether you have family or friends who struggle with it, or whether you have little to no understanding of it, we invite you to join us for three weeks as we grow together in perseverance and in empathy, educating ourselves on what mental illness is and what Scripture has to offer on the topic.
March 10 - April 14
We talk about Jesus a lot, and for good reason! But for all that talk, we can so easily lose touch with what Jesus came here to do. What is the Kingdom of God, and how could it possibly intersect with our mundane day-to-day lives? What was/is Jesus’ mission, and how are we called to participate in it? This year for Lent we will explore the book of Luke together using a daily devotional by NT Wright to reflect on these and other questions. We will meet together weekly to discuss the devotional readings, as together we encounter a Jesus that is at once familiar and surprising, and discover his true mission and your place in it.
Our DISCIPLESHIP:YOUTH courses are designed to give students (grades 8-12) the opportunity to more closely study the Bible together, share opinions about how the Bible relates to the world they live in and to help build disciples who will share their faith with those they encounter everyday.
