Discipleship Through Thought & Practice

Discipleship Courses are designed to be short-term, catalytic experiences to encourage and equip our church to be resilient discipleship of Jesus.

Our Vision

We believe disciples are transformed to become more like Jesus through truth, community, practices, and the Holy Spirit. So Discipleship Courses aim to help our church interact with the Bible to discern God’s truth, develop meaningful relationships with one another, learn practical skills in ministry and Christian living, and experience growth and transformation through the Holy Spirit.


Core Courses

Winter courses start on February 9th or 16th and run every other Sunday into March. Each course will be offered during our 9:15 or 11:30 worship gathering. (Spring courses will begin at the end of April and run into June.)
