Discipleship Hour


Discipleship Hour 9:00 am-10:00 am (April 28, 2019 through June 2, 2019)
Worship at 10:15 am
At Christ the Redeemer discipleship is taken seriously. We are committed to being a community of “Disciples who Make Disciples.” Eager to deepen that commitment, a ‘Discipleship Hour’ for adults, youth and children  will take place prior to worship seasonally each week.

DISCIPLESHIP HOUR FOR ADULTS AND TEENS:

BEGINNING APRIL 28, 2019 two adult and one youth Discipleship Hour Classes are meeting:

Track 1. “Personality and Service: Finding Your Place in Ministry” Join us for a seven week course in which we look at various personality and individual features which can be clues to finding God’s calling for you at Christ the Redeemer.  He has created each individual unique, including our innate personalities and our histories and environments that have helped to form us.  At times, individuals can feel “guilted” into serving in ministries or services to which they are not properly suited.  Alternatively, many individuals fail to step into roles which God has formed them to succeed in.  In both of these cases, the life of the Church suffers.  This class will explore how personality, environmental factors, and gifting can help inform how and where you would both thrive the most and help others to live into their own callings. Note: This course is designed to be practical and personal.  While we will be guided by Scripture, it is not a Bible course; attenders should be prepared to engage personally with the material.

Track 2. “Growing Compassionate Kids” This class is for parents and and other interested caregivers. The book we will be using is by the same name and is written by Jan Johnson. It is available on Amazon. This book will give advice to help us grow children as Disciples of Christ –disciples who care about others and seek justice in the world . What greater Legacy could we leave our children?

Track 3. “Walking through Philippians” For anyone interested in reading though and discussing the book of Philippians together.

DISCIPLESHIP HOUR FOR CHILDREN:

The Jesus Storybook Bible Where Every Story Whispers His Name

The key to raising our children to be Christ-followers is to ensure that they know the Story of the Scriptures and how to live within it!  Jennifer Brown has been leading the children through The Jesus Storybook Bible, “Where Every Story Whispers His Name.”
Please note, we will continue with our regular Sunday School classes during the Worship hour for the present time. However, these will now be geared towards reinforcing the lessons learned during the ‘Discipleship Hour’.  Your children will be doubly blessed by engaging in both programs.

Please Note:  The Nursery will be open during Discipleship Hour for all children younger than pre-school age.
