For the past five years, FPC has invested in the lives of its members by offering and encouraging participation in discipleship groups. These small groups meet on Wednesday evenings following the fellowship dinner and emphasize personal growth, relationship building, and accountability.
We have been very encouraged by the response to this ministry and want to encourage those not involved to prayerfully consider joining one of these small groups. Our goal is discipleship and growth in grace. With the busyness of our world, we need to take time to stop, listen, pray, and wrestle with issues of spiritual growth together.
The prophet Jeremiah reminds us of the importance of this growth process: "Thus says the Lord: 'Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,' declares the Lord." (Jer. 9:23-24).
If you are not involved in our Wednesday evening discipleship groups, now is the time to join. To sign-up, call or email Shannon Craft in the Discipleship Office and you will be connected to a group.
