Discipleship Collective

WHAT IS DISCIPLESHIP?

It’s when someone who loves and obeys Jesus helps others do the same. We believe that discipleship is God’s primary means of changing the world. It’s in the mundane stuff of life–the eye-to-eye conversations, the heart-to-heart admissions, and the life-on-life experiences–that Jesus’ grace and truth are clearly manifested. Women who join the Discipleship Collective are eager to invest in the lives of others. They seek to be intentional, authentic, and vulnerable with others. They are compelled to bring people to the feet of Jesus. They want to spend their time doing what matters and see Jesus change lives forever.

The Discipleship Collective Church curriculum is a year-long resource created to equip you for intergenerational life-on-life discipleship that dives into topics like prayer and repentance and spiritual gifts. 

The minimum time requirement is once per month- for the learning portion. But we recommend you connect to pray and just be together one other time each month.

Studies start September 23rd!

Class Descriptions:

1. 1 PETER STUDY by Jen Wilkin – led by Kara Bayly

Date and time: Wednesday Mornings from 9:30-11 (In-person study at the church. Masks are mandatory)

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. 1 Peter will discuss the key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ.

2. FINDING GOD FAITHFUL by Kelly Minter – led by Heather Giovannetti

Date and time: Wednesday Evenings at 7 PM (In-person study at the church. Masks are mandatory.)

Trace the path of Joseph’s life in the Book of Genesis to observe how God’s sovereignty reigns, even in our darkest moments. Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God’s plan when life doesn’t make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance. His provision is enough, His presence is constant, and His purpose is unstoppable.

3. EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY SPIRITUALITY by Peter Scazzero – led by Kristina Orenstein & Kenzie Dupuis

Date and time: Wednesday Evenings at 7 PM (Online study via Zoom)

The degree to which we are willing to give Jesus access to what is deeply beneath the surface of our lives. It is equal to the degree to which we will experience freedom in him. ‘ – Peter Scazzero
This September, we will look at eight core biblical truths and principles over nine weeks using YouTube videos, followed by a group discussion via Zoom.
In January, you will have the option to go deeper – this would include a daily devotional and book study with intentional group reflection and encouragement via Zoom.

4. FORGOTTEN GOD by Francis Chan – led by Glenda Light

Date and time: Wednesday Mornings at 7 AM (Online study via Zoom)

Today’s church admires the gift of the Holy Spirit, but have we neglected to open it? Chan tears away the wrapping paper and the ribbons to uncover the source of the believing community’s true power for witness and service. He issues a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Spirit of the living God.

These bible studies have been the place where I have grown the most in my walk with God. Meeting together with women to study has built into my life mentorship and friendship. I have a better understanding of the Word of God and this has helped me weather the storms of life. It is a place of encouragement and building in wisdom.

MOM COLLECTIVE

Mom Collective is a space for mothers with preschoolers to get to know a small group of women and engage in led conversation about topics that matter to moms. Our theme this year is “The Days of Our Lives”. Come and meet with other moms in a similar life stage as you, talking about the things your days hold as moms of littles!

Every other Thursday evening from 7:30-9 pm. Cost: $20.00 per year. This is an in-person meeting. Masks are mandatory.

Any questions? Contact Glenda Postman

BETRAYAL AND BEYOND

Betrayal & Beyond explores the truth and nature of sexual addiction, and how women are wounded by the addict’s behaviors. For women who have suffered betrayal, their healing comes from understanding the role of trauma, establishing healthy boundaries, exploring the depth of forgiveness, and learning to live in restoration.

This group weeks Monday evenings at 7:00 pm.

IF TABLES

2 hours | 4 questions | 6 women

“They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” Acts 2: 46

IF Tables are a simple tool to help you form community and connection, through inviting women to gather around a table once a month for deep conversation and a meal.

We all want to build authentic relationships and have real conversation with one another, and we’re all in process with Jesus. Each month it’s a two hour commitment by six women with four questions to answer together. There’s no right or wrong, just a safe and welcoming place to be real with each other.

“IF Tables caught me by surprise. I was invited to join a table by a woman I knew at church. She explained that I would commit once a month to getting to know a group of women. We were welcomed in and ate together, then we read four questions and each took a turn answering them. It felt risky to step out, but it was so worth it. I couldn’t wait to get to the next month and soon these women became a safe and loving place. They supported me, listened, and I felt known and understood. My IF table became a place I belong. It has impacted my walk with Jesus as I wrestle out what this looks like. This isn’t a program, it is a simple tool to help you walk together.”

Sanctuary Mental Health Course

  • define the principles and processes of recovery,
  • reflect on the importance of companionship,
