Fellowshipping Disciples: “Are we happy yet?" based on an article by John Ortberg.
Facilitator: Jeannie Phelps
Location: Room 206
There will be an in-person adult discipleship class, hosted by the Fellowshipping Disciples but open to all. It will meet Sundays 8:45am-9:45am beginning June 19 in room 206. The first topic we will discuss will be a Christianity Today study entitled “Are We Happy Yet?” based on an article by John Ortberg. During our study, we will look at a variety of scripture passages all the way from Psalms to Philippians. We will look at happiness vs. contentment and how the culture views happiness vs. a Christian view. Jeannie Phelps will be the facilitator. Everyone is welcome.
The goal of the Fellowship class is to make everyone feel welcome as the class studies the Bible and prays together. The class begins with coffee, snacks and conversation, followed by interactive study on a Christian topic or book of the Bible. An ongoing theme in our discussions is how to live as a Christian in the world, with the challenges of the changing culture. the supportive sociable atmosphere provides a forum for classmates to share concerns, joys and needs. All are welcome anytime.
Educating Disciples: Not currently meeting through the summer
This class focuses on deep study of the Scriptures in order to approach God more intimately and to understand the unfailing grace offered to imperfect people. We seek to learn how to live out our calling as beloved children of the one true God by pondering the lives of those who have gone before us, the "great cloud of witnesses for the faith" (Heb 12:1). Above all, we want to know Christ and the power of HIs resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, that we may become more like Him (Phil 3:10).
Establishing Disciples: Not meeting through the summer
Facilitator: Joe Bustamante at Josephmbustamante@gmail.com
Establishing Disciples is tailored to young adults, so anyone in their college-aged years to their early 30s, single or married, will feel right at home. From how phones are changing us to finding the life you want in Christ, Establishing Disciples will tackle the unique experiences and challenges of early adulthood.
Equipping Disciples: Not currently meeting through the summer
The class will be held in a hybrid format with participation possible in person or via Zoom.
The class will focus on encountering God in a riveting and complicated part of scripture. As we read together, we will develop a deeper understanding of what God spoke to the prophet and practice ways to encounter scripture with attention and expectation. This study of one of the Bible’s most important books will call us to live in light of its witness to both God’s stern judgement and abundant grace.
Supporting Disciples (SALT- Single Adults in the Lord Together)
*NOT MEETING AT THIS TIME
For several dynamic decades, this class brought together single adults for Bible study and fellowship. It has now grown into an active group of senior adults offering more in-depth Bible study and welcomes mature believers whether single, divorced, married or widowed. The fourth Monday of each month features a potluck dinner open to anyone seeking table fellowship or a mentor in the faith. TGC is blessed to have a wealth of experienced Christians to share their hard-won wisdom.
