Discover Spiritual Growth
We use the baseball diamond as a picture of the incredible life God has designed for us. Classes about each base around the path address a step in this life-discovery process.
1st Base - Knowing Christ
The Discovering My Membership 101 Seminar that we call Seekers & Joiners is the first measurable step toward Christian maturity. Seekers & Joiners welcomes those new to the church or to faith in Christ, offering a non-threatening haven for exploration. The seminar is normally offered on a Sunday afternoon. While many participants choose to become members following the seminar, others take time to reflect on what they have learned in this course before pursuing the steps of faith and personal commitment to follow Christ or before becoming church members. If you are looking to connect with us, this is the place to begin your way around the diamond.
2nd Base - Growing in Christ
The Discovering My Maturity 201 Seminar focuses on the Four Basic Habits every Christian needs to develop in order to grow and experience spiritual maturity. The four habits are: time in God’s Word, prayer, tithing, and fellowship. This seminar is designed to equip you with the skills needed to begin each of these habits; and explain the tools needed in order to continue these habits.
3rd Base - Serving Christ
The Discovering My Ministry 301 Seminar is the third of our four basic growth classes. The purpose of this class is to guide you through a discovery process of who God made you to be. We believe that once you understand who God made you to be, then you will understand what God made you to do. The focus is to help you understand the five factors of your own unique SHAPE: Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, Experiences. You'll then be able to identify and serve in the ministry of the church that best expresses (and this is the key) what God made you to be; and, challenge you to use your gifts and abilities through your church family and in our local communities.
Home Plate - Sharing Christ
The Discovering My Mission 401 Seminar is the final basic growth class we present as you complete your trip around the bases. In this class, you will discover your mission in the world. The focus of this class offers a challenge for us to share God’s "good news" with others. The Bible says, "The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me to tell people the 'good news' about God’s grace" (Acts 20:24).
So come, find your spot, your position on base, and DISCOVER life as you always dreamed it could be !!
