Adult Discipleship
Wherever you are, or wherever your walk with Jesus is, the point is that there is always room to move – to grow – to press on along the pathway. We hope to help you select discipleship opportunities that fit where you are or where you are going. For more information about Adult Discipleship, please contact Laurel Griffith, Associate Minister.

Started August 16th

Walden Chapel
Study Guide $20
The Drama of Scripture: There is one true story and God has chosen to reveal it to us through Scripture. It begins with God’s creation, moves to human rebellion, and runs right through the history of Israel, on to Jesus, through the church, and finally to the coming kingdom of God. We find meaning and purpose when we understand God’s great redemptive drama and then connect our lives to it. We will explore the central themes of Scripture and learn how God is acting in history for the benefit of the world.
