Discipleship Series on Stott Book Continues

This past Sunday we gathered at 10am for discipleship with the first in our series of chapter studies. We are going through John Stott's Basic Christianity, and the discussion was very invigorating. We discussed the preface and Chapter 1: "The Right Approach."

This coming Sunday we will discuss chapter 2: "The Claims of Christ." By taking small bits of the book at a time, we can be more thorough, have livelier discussion, and allow people to come and go through the sessions. All are invited, even if you can only make one of the sessions. Please contact me to get a free book to use.

We gather in the chapel area, behind the glass doors on the left as you enter His Dream Center, and we will meet for 40 minutes, so that we can have 20 minutes to prepare our hearts for worship in the main sanctuary. At the same time, Sunday school for the older children (over 5) will resume, and childcare is available for children under 5, so feel free to join in the discussion, even if you have kids.

The format of the sessions will be as follows: we will each read part of the book on our own, and then come to the session on Sunday morning with questions. I will have questions, too, so that we can get the discussion started. This way we can all take the conversation to the places where we each most need Christ's discipleship. Hope you can participate in this first discipleship series in our new location!
