Discipleship Menu Board (September to December)
Take a look through what we are offering over the next three months. The entries are not the same, some are face-to-face gatherings while others are self-directed options using online or printed resources. What they have in common is that each one will encourage and equip you in growing as a follower of Jesus.
Pick one and do it. It is that simple.
Biblical Themes Series (The Bible Project YouTube Channel)
This multi-part animated series helps remind us that the Bible is one unified story leading to Jesus by tracing important biblical themes through the entire narrative of the bible. The Bible Project does an excellent job showing how broad biblical themes develop and find their culmination in Jesus and empower the ongoing work of the church in the world. This series is continuing to grow, with themes of “the Tree of Life” and “7th Day Rest” coming soon. The series begins with “God”.
