Growing in Discipleship

Philip's Discipleship Focus

Philip has shared his desire for our church to grow as Disciples. His heart is to see our church grow, deeper in our faith in Jesus Christ, and wider by inviting others to join us in that journey. Philip brought to life Jesus' only sermon, recorded in Matthew's gospel. This was the launching point for his discipleship focus. Join us as our church takes a step forward, becoming the church God wants us to be.

What are we doing?

We're learning from the Bible and each other through groups and classes to be more like Christ. This learning helps us be in a deeper relationship with God.

How do we grow together?

We don't all need the same things at the same time. Our lives and spiritual needs are different. Below, you'll find a listing of what we're offering right now to help you grow in your spiritual life.
