Starting in October, we will have a special opportunity to explore what it means for each of us to follow in Jesus' footsteps to be a disciple.
A Disciple's Path is an engaging approach to discipleship through the lens of our Methodist heritage. The six-week program guides individuals to take the next steps in discipleship and become dynamic followers of Jesus Christ and engaged, vital members of the local church.
The study combines a Wesleyan understanding of our growth in God's love and grace with practices of spiritual disciplines:
upholding the church with our
prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
Develop spiritual practices
Discover our unique gifts
Become engaged in ministry that brings transformation in our own lives, the lives of others, and the world
You can participate in a few ways:
Attend Sunday worship. For 6 weeks, will we explore how we can grow in God's love and grace through prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. (Schedule below.)
Go deeper with a daily workbook. This additional resource can be used individually or with your School class or Small Group.
This optional workbook includes five readings a week that help you prepare
before each Sunday's topic. It’s a way to learn, explore, and reflect on your own
path of discipleship. Again, you can participate individually or as a group.
Workbooks can be purchased at the Connection Point ($12) on/by September 29
in order to prepare for our first Sunday worship session on Sunday, October 6.
You are also welcome to purchase an optional Companion Reader ($13), which is
another tool to further your experience.
Associate Pastor, Patty Muse, will also offer thoughtful support on our private
