2015-16 Discipleship Groups
Discipleship groups are for students in seventh–12th grades. They are grouped based on gender and age, and placed with an adult leader who will lead and shepherd them. These groups address three big needs in the life of a follower of Jesus:
- Discipleship—growth in students’ relationships with Christ;
- Fellowship—growth in students’ relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ; and
- Evangelism—growth in students’ relationship to the world in order to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Discipleship groups for seventh–eighth grades meet at the church every Sunday beginning September 13.
Discipleship groups for ninth–12th grades meet at the the church every other Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., beginning September 16.
Registration for all students is required.
