Grow deeper in your faith

These studies, classes and workshops exist to encourage the discipleship process that is central to the purpose of the Church (Matthew 28:19). The goal is to help Christ-followers be graciously shaped by the Spirit through the study of Scripture, the practice of spiritual disciplines and the encouragement of the community of believers.

Some studies are gender-based, while others are coed to encourage married couples to strengthen their relationship as they grow deeper in their faith. All studies, classes and workshops require registration.

Spiritual Practices Community

Saturday, Mar. 11, 9:00 AM (recurring)

Centerville (Rooms 201-203)

From its beginning, the Church has linked the desire for closeness with God to intentional practices, relationships and experiences that gave people space in their lives to “keep company” with Jesus. These are known as “spiritual disciplines,” and they’re fueled by the desire to know and love God. If that kind of intentional community sounds inviting to you, join in as we meet three times over three months, focusing our intentions on three specific practices, while using a social media tool to share our experiences, learning and community. Led by Pastor Paul Clark.
