September 4th, 2014 | Posted by webmanager in Uncategorized - (Comments Off)

Are You a Fan or a Follower?

foot prints

Do you know what it really means to be a follower of Christ? Do you know if you are a fan or a follower and what does that mean anyway? Come join a group this fall and participate in the small group study “Not a Fan” to consider these questions along with others.

This six week, video-driven small group Bible study is centered around the calling of every Christian to truly follow Jesus Christ and provides an opportunity to deepen your relationship with Jesus. The study each week lasts about 90 minutes and includes a 25-35 minute video which tells the unfolding dramatic story of a couple as they face some difficult life situations followed by group discussion and prayer.

Group sign up sheets will be available in the narthex starting September 7th and the groups will begin meeting the week of October 6th. This is one Bible study you don’t want to miss out on!

If you have questions or would be willing to host a group or lead a group please contact one of the Discipleship Team members (Beth Gimbert, Ben Garber, or Teri Sumey).
