Mere Discipleship: The Ordinary Calling of Every Christian

September 27 – October 25
Sunday Mornings, 10:45 am, Lower Auditorium
Led by Jeremy Spainhour

In this class, we will explore a relational model of discipleship, focusing on what it looks like to be a disciple in the worlds we already inhabit with the people we already know. The vision of discipleship is not about adding one more thing to an already overcrowded life; it is about being a light in a world overcrowded with darkness.

Word for the Year

Every year we have a “Word for the Year” for our church family around which our experience of God in the upcoming year finds focus and relevance. Our word for 2015 is “watch”. What might we see God do if we are watchful and alert to His Presence? I would also encourage you to be thinking about and praying for your own personal word for the year. It’s a great spiritual exercise that helps bring God’s Presence into our every day world. What will your word be? … Pastor Steve
