The philosophy behind DiscipleLIFE classes is several-fold. While promoting an atmosphere that encourages fellowship, our primary focus is on building up the body of Christ in the foundations of the faith. As a church body, we should be seeking to grow in our knowledge of Scripture, in obedience to Christ, and in reverence for God. DiscipleLIFE classes seek to provide the format for believers to grow in these areas while not negating fellowship with one another.
DiscipleLIFE classes meet at 9:00 AM on Sunday mornings.
The following classes are being offered beginning April 23, 2017:
“Tell Someone: You Can Share the Good News”
Taught by Michael Smith & Brent Hendricks Room 112/113
Have you shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with anyone before? Have you ever wanted to but just weren’t quite sure how to go about it? Maybe you share regularly and are looking for more tools to put in your toolbox. If any of these apply to you then this class may be for you! It is based on the book “Tell Someone – You Can Share the Good News” by Greg Laurie.
1 & 2 Thessalonians
Taught by Steve Agal & Rick Storm Room 109/110
Sometimes considered Paul’s eschatological letters, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians extensively discusses the second coming of Christ. In both of these letters Paul writes to encourage the believers in Thessalonica, to provide guidance on godly living, and to reassure the believers about the return of Christ.
Abiding in Jesus
A class geared for teenagers Room 115
Inspired by John 15, this study teaches that abiding in Jesus leads to trusting Him in all life’s situations and bearing spiritual fruit in Him. Each lesson allows time for students to experience Christian fellowship. The study features interactive teaching with small group discussion, application, prayer, and fellowship time. All middle school and high school students are welcome to attend. Parents are encouraged to participate, too!
A Word From The Elders:
In the book of 1 Peter, chapter 5, the elders are instructed to “shepherd the flock of God among you.” We, the elders at Grace, have a deep desire to fulfill this biblical exhortation. In order to do this, we have created DiscipleLIFE classes, or midsize communities, where the elders and key teachers of the church can exercise oversight of the flock in order for the mission of Grace to be carried out. The church can only be the church if people know one another, care for one another and reach out to others. We lovingly encourage you to participate in one of these biblical communities that you might grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
