Discipleship

Discipleship

Discipleship is learning to follow Jesus, learning about both him and ourselves, learning to love as God loves: all, no exceptions. Jesus commands us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves, but how can we love ourselves if we don’t know who we are? By discovering and understanding ourselves in community, we learn to empathize with those around us and manifest God’s realm on earth.

Regardless of where you are in life’s journey, there is a place for you. You can find classes for pre-K through 12th grade during the entire year. A seasonal adult-supervised nursery is also available. We are always looking for volunteers to lead classes or help guide our youth.
