Discipleship Night

St. Andrew’s exists to be a community of disciples who make disciples. 

Discipleship is a common buzzword in the church world, but what does it really mean? When we say discipleship, we mean having our lives reoriented around Jesus. We do this, not in order to earn favor or God’s love, but because his ways lead to life and wholeness. Being a disciple is not just about knowing the right information or doing the right things, it’s about hearing the call of God and responding. This happens best in community because continuing to say yes to the ways of Christ on our own is often difficult. 

This school year, we are beginning a new discipleship pathway that will help us re-frame our faith as we submit the real stuff of our lives to be transformed by the gospel. We will look at basic christian truths that we take for granted and how our culture has twisted our thought process about each truth. We’ll look for the lie in each twist and ask how Christ is inviting us to go from the lie to the truth in some actionable way.

From 6-7:30 p.m. every other Monday night from August 22–November 14, we’ll meet together at the church for a family dinner, a short teaching and small-group discussion. On the off weeks, the small groups will split up into 2 groups (A & B) and meet to go deeper in the discussion of the previous week’s topic (schedule below for clarification). When we say family, we do mean family. Children will eat dinner with us and then head to their own classes for an age-appropriate study.
