Adult Discipleship Classes

"Applying God's Word To Life"

Sundays, 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

The winter-spring session is almost over. please join us when our new line-up classes begins September 10, 2017!

When you hear the word discipleship, what thoughts come to mind? Many think of discipleship as knowing facts about Jesus and the Bible. Biblically, discipleship is not a program but a process - a process of becoming more and more like Christ.

A disciple is a "pupil" or a "learner," a "follower;" one with definite commitment. By definition, "a disciple is someone who is being taught and consequently accepts a set of beliefs, embracing a holistic, total, and intentional approach to life based on those teachings.

For the Christian "those teachings" are found in God's Word, the Bible. As Christ Followers we are called to be intentional about understanding and applying God's Word to our lives. 

Adult Discipleship offers a number of GREAT classes that will help you apply God's Word to daily life.

Pray about which class to attend and then commit to attend!!
