Discipleship Classes are small group environments where participants can be in community while engaging in Bible Study. Discipleship now offers three different class types as follows:

  • Starting Point - For those new to faith, just checking it out, or coming back to church after some time away. Starting Point is a great first step. It's a conversational small group environment where you can explore faith and experience community.

  • Get to Know the Bible- For those somewhat familiar with the Bible, but want to learn how all of the Bible connects.

  • Dig - For those who desire to dig into a specific book of the Bible. In this session, we will study the Book of James.
