Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.

Journey Groups

Our purpose is to invite all people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.  To follow Jesus means to live the way Jesus taught us.  We believe God intends for us to follow the way of Jesus together, in community with others.  That’s why we have several ways for people to be involved with a group of people committed to learning to follow Jesus.

Throughout the year we offer several short-term groups in which you can form and deepen relationships with others, grow in faith, be challenged, and learn what it means to follow in the ways of Jesus.  We call these groups Journey Groups because life is a journey, and one best traveled with others.

Disciple III – Remember Who You Are 32 weeks\ Sundays 3:00-4:30pm \ begins Sun. Oct. 7

Disciple III Remember Who You Are is the third study in the four-phase DISCIPLE program. The driving idea in this study is the connection between memory and identity as the people of God. Participants in this 32 week study will read the major and minor Old Testament prophets, with the exception of Daniel, and will read the thirteen Letters traditionally attributed to Paul.

Several themes weave their way through the study – the call to remember; the call to repentance; the need for renewed vision; and the place of community. The prophets and Paul are continually calling hearers and readers back to their God and to a sense of who they are as a people “set apart.”

Everything you always wanted to know about Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
