Discipleship Hour


Discipleship Hour 9:00 am-10:00 am (January 13, 2019 through May 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 JANUARY 13, 2019 two adult and one youth Discipleship Hour Classes are meeting:

Class 1. “Exploring Membership at Christ the Redeemer” If God has drawn you into our community, we strongly encourage you to explore becoming a Covenanted Member of Christ the Redeemer. This 8 week class will focus on the things that shape our life: The Story of the Scriptures, the Story of the Church, the ethos of the Anglican tradition that gives us a way of living out, and within, the Gospel. The class culminates in the specific commitments embraced by our members.

Class 2. “Grasping the Sweep of the New Testament” We live our lives within the Story of the Scriptures. The more we understand the sweep of the Scriptures, the greater our opportunity to live within the story well! This 8-week class, will introduce us to the sweep of the New Testament in a ‘user-friendly’ way. It will become a companion to our Old Testament class (but you do not need to have attended that class to participate in this one).  While the class itself intends to be comprehensive, each session will stand on its own (so we encourage you to come to all, but invite you to come whenever you are able.)

Class 3. “Youth Discipleship Hour” For all those in grades 6-12; we will meet at the same time as the adult classes and be led by Deacon David Watts and youth leaders.

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.
