Core Discipleship

New session begins each September and January

Jesus has called us to make disciples who obey all that He has commanded and are committed to His mission of making more disciples. This is the core of what God has called us to do as His Church. For this to happen people need to know what God teaches in His word and how to interact with Him through spiritual practices.

Core Discipleship will help believers know and be obedient to the teaching's of God's Word and will encourage them to make more disciples. It is a two session course taught by Pastor Matt Clausen.

Dinner, childcare, and materials will be provided.
