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.
Here is a video introducing DiscipleLIFE 2017.
The following classes are being offered during the 1st quarter of 2017 (January 8 to March 19):
The Book of Hebrews
Taught by Rick Storm
This class will survey the 19th book of the New Testament gleaning God’s purpose for His church and hope for each believer.
Jesus in John’s Gospel
Taught by Ron Dodson
This class examines the first half of John’s Gospel. The intent of this class is to not only learn more about the book of John, but is to learn more about yourself as a Christian by learning more about Jesus from the words of John the son of Zebedee, the disciple whom Jesus loved.
Lukewarm…not good for coffee or Christians
Taught by Mike Rutherford & David Dale
Come explore the Revelation concept of being lukewarm. In John’s revelations, Jesus characterizes the church in Laodicea as being neither hot nor cold, but lukewarm. It is the reason Jesus declares Laodiceans will be spit out. This study will survey Scripture to better understand what it means to be “lukewarm” and how a Believer might grow in their faith toward godliness.
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.
If you have questions regarding any of these opportunities, please contact the church office at (317) 859-8008.
