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.

Perhaps no chapters of Scripture are more controversial—and misunderstood—than the beginning of Genesis. Join us as delve into the first 11 chapters to explore their meaning and significance.
DURING THE WEEK
Thursdays, Oct. 7-Nov. 11 | 6-7:30 p.m. | Commons
St. Andrew’s is launching a robust, new discipleship plan, and Faith Reframed is our first big step. This meeting will lay a foundation for future classes and groups and serve as our primary offering for the fall. Each week a short teaching on essentials, like scripture and the church, will set up rich small-group discussion and discernment time. (This meeting will also serve as a natural follow-up to the recent Church in a Changing Culture class, though familiarity with that material is not required.)
One Sunday a month | 4-6:15 p.m. | Andrew Room
October 10; November 7; December 5; January 9; February 6; March 6; April 10
NOVO Spiritual Authority Cohort is a seven-month experiential prayer training that allows followers of Jesus to fully discover their identity as sons and daughters of the King and experiment with specific prayer tools in a safe environment to gain confidence to step into the spiritual authority that has been delegated to us in the name of Jesus.
Tuesdays, beginning Oct. 5 | 10 a.m. | Andrew Room
“What kind of king and what kind of kingdom are we asking for when we pray this prayer Jesus taught us to pray? A study of the Old Testament Historical Books―Joshua through Esther―enables us to see the kingdom of God not only as it once was, but also as it is now, and as it will be one day. Over ten weeks of guided study, relevant teaching, and group discussion, [we’ll trace] the history of the people of God from the time they entered the Promised Land through a series of failed kings, exile, and finally their return to await the true King.” Space is limited.
Sign up by calling Carol McMath, Doody Keet, Debi Steppach, or Susie Hampton
