New Bible Study ~ In Person and on Zoom “Marks of a Disciple: Six Measurements for Growth” by Dean Inserra~ Kevin Smiley Start Date: October 1st – 6 Week video Study Sunday’s approx. 20 minutes after Service. Meeting in the Children’s Classroom Every Christian—regardless of age, demographic, or background—is designed by God to grow in faith. But many of us don’t know what growth looks like. How do we even know we’re growing? In Marks of a Disciple, pastor Dean Inserra examines six measurements to help us see whether or not we’re developing spiritually. This is not a checklist or a punch card, but rather a group of traits distilled from Scripture that should be evident in the life of a follower of Jesus. As we pursue these markers, our faith can flourish the way God intended.

Fall 2015: Counter Culture by David Platt We learned The Bible is clear on a number of issues: Who God is—the holy, just, and gracious Creator of the universe Who we are—men and women created in the image of God for our good and for God's glory Who Christ is and what He has done—His life, death, and resurrection What it means to follow Christ—to die to ourselves and to live in Him Why this matters for eternity-- heaven and hell are at stake in our response to the gospel So how do these truths affect how we respond to the social issues of our day-- realities such as poverty, slavery, abortion, sexual immorality, the degradation of marriage, the neglect of orphans and widows, racism, and persecution?
