Adult Discipleship

Adult discipleship classes are a time our community sets aside  in order to plunge deeper into the “what” and “how” of living in God’s Kingdom. Taking time to submit ourselves in study under God’s Word is part of how the Spirit transforms us more in Jesus’ image by seeking the renewal of our minds.

Because we desire to study God’s Word as disciples of Jesus, not as disinterested religious students, our goal is that we would not simply walk away having acquired more information about God, but rather walk away having our hearts pierced by God’s gracious Word (Hebrews 4:12) with a greater vision for following Jesus in his Kingdom.

Gifted teachers bring to life the beauty of God’s word in an environment where relationships are built and people are able to interact in a conversational and relaxed setting. As we engage with God and his word in community with one another, we invite the Holy Spirit to come and renew our minds, reorder our priorities and reshape our habits around the person and work if Jesus Christ.

Occurring more than any other term, 180 times in his 13 letters, “In Christ” represents Paul’s most important message to us as believers: “Christ, in You, the Hope of Glory;” “I am in Him and He is In me.” All of God’s life changing blessings are wrapped up in Paul’s term. To receive those blessings, believers must understand and be able to apply the term. This study will explain Paul’s unique meaning of the term, along with the major passages that unpack its life changing aspects.

“In a defensive and divided era, how can followers of Jesus reveal a better way of living?”  Scott Sauls’ compelling book, A Gentle Answer: Our “secret weapon” in an age of us against them leads Christians to:

  • grow in their affection for Jesus, who illustrates gentleness in the face of hostility,
  • nurture a softened heart by receiving Jesus’ gentleness towards us, and
  • view and communicate with others through the lens of persons who are loved by God.

Join William and April Carpenter on Zoom for this book study to consider and discuss the various ways we can use Scripture and communication to improve relationships during this divisive time. Please purchase the book on your own (app. $16 on Amazon).

Almost one fourth of John’s gospel focuses on less than 24 hours in the life of Jesus with his disciples. In this class, we will take five weeks to dig into the hours immediately before Jesus’s arrest as recorded in five chapters in the Gospel of John (John 13-17) that describe Jesus’s final meal with his disciples through his arrest.
