Our church wants to be “Disciples Who Make Disciples.” There are two sides to that: First is being disciples, that is, being intentional about learning from Jesus and his Word; second is making disciples, that is, sharing our stories of faith in Jesus with others and inviting them to receive Jesus for themselves.
SHIFT is a teaching and learning emphasis that helps us be true to the vision of being disciples. We are beginning this six-week teaching emphasis in September in our children, youth, and adult learning, and in Sunday morning worship. Each week’s lesson is self-contained. You are invited to come to what you can, and not be discouraged by anything you have to miss.
