Discipleship, Fellowship and Service Opportunities
A Message from the Pastor:
Deep down we all long to be in community — in community with God and in community with others. Community is where friendships are made, fun times are enjoyed,and fellowship is experienced. Ministry and service happens in community; worship happens in community. Most importantly, discipleship happens in community with other believers, with other “disciples”.
Followers of Jesus Christ are called disciples, and they are called by Jesus to study His Word revealed in the Bible. Discipleship and Bible study is not simply for information. It ultimately leads to transformation as disciples of Jesus are transformed to be more like Him.
At St. Paul’s Church, we are intentional about discipleship and intentional about communities called “small groups” or “LIFE Groups”. We believe that discipleship and community happens best in this environment. To this end, we have many different opportunities to engage in discipleship in a small group community setting. No one can participate in all of them, but everyone should prayerfully consider participating in one or some of them. This year, I especially want to challenge you to join a small group so you can grow in your discipleship, participate in fellowship, and find ways to serve and put your faith in action.
Over the past 18 months, social distancing has made community difficult. Now that gathering in small groups is possible again, I pray that you will find a small group where you can engage in discipleship, have fellowship with the Lord Jesus and other disciples, and find ways to serve the community in the Name of Jesus. God bless you on the discipleship journey!
