Discipleship Classes

Discipleship Classes

We believe that by knowing God’s Word we will be “thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16). Discipleship Classes are offered in Room 202 (unless otherwise noted) every Sunday and cover a wide variety of topics. Teachers aim to uncover biblical truths that equip participants to grow in their love of God.

Peter's Principles

September 10 through October 29 | Room 202

Confused about what it means to be a follower of Jesus? Unsure of which of the many models of discipleship is the most helpful? "Peter's principles" can help. This Discipleship Class is an in-depth study of 2 Peter 1:3-11. Over eight consecutive Sundays beginning Sept 10, 2023, we will explore Peter's map of the seven milestones of following Jesus. This course is for all disciples of Jesus, whether new or seasoned. It unpacks the dynamics of faith, virtue, self-control, steadfastness, godliness, brotherly affection, and love and the role they play in moving us forward in the journey to follow Jesus. By the end of this course, participants will not only have a clearer picture of the significant milestones of the Christian journey but practical help in reaching those milestones in creative and constructive ways as we journey together toward the City of God.
