What’s Happening 
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Our fall classes have started and they are based on our new Discipleship Pathway!
 
What is a discipleship pathway? If you don’t know what a Discipleship Pathway is, click here to find out more. Essentially it enables us to offer more opportunities for people to grow in their faith with others who are in a similar place.
 
If you’ve ever worried that you didn’t know enough to attend a class, that you’d somehow be out of your league, our Discipleship Pathway aims to make sure there is a place for everyone that is appropriate for where they are on their faith-journey.
 
When you visit our Discipleship Page, you’ll also be able to take a look at our 2021 course catalog and find out what we are going to be offering on Sunday mornings for Discipleship growth.
