Jesus’ final instructions were clear:
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)
Discipleship is central to our walk in faith, to know Jesus and make him known. At Apostles, we say we are Disciples of Jesus, Discipling in Love. So discipleship is at the core of the identity of the Church. During the past winter and spring months, Pastors Joe and Josh have run several pilot Discipleship small groups, based on the Study Guide: “Discipleship Essentials – A Guide to building your life in Christ” by Greg Ogden. We have found the groups utilizing this Biblical Study guide experience transformation in their walk with the Lord.
We are now inviting others to form small groups of 3-6 people to take this on. The office has copies of the study guide available for your review. In addition, Pastor Joe will be leading a group for folks new to Apostles beginning July 10 and running every-other week through the summer for six initial sessions. Pastor Joe will also be available to discuss the possibilities on Sundays and is open to having a Sunday class for those interested in meeting then.
