Discipleship Plans for 2018-2019

Thursdays, October 25-December 6: Five Marks of a Methodist, a study based on the book by the same name by Steve Harper. Registration for this class will begin in mid-September; materials (book and study guide) cost $11.

Growing the Leader Inside All of Us: A church-wide invitation to grow in our discipleship and leadership in connecting with one another (regardless of age, and regardless of current leadership position or lack thereof). We will read four books over the nine-month period between September and May, and we will gather four times to discuss one book each time, discussing the current book assignment, along with its application to the church, to our church, and its connection to the other selections we are reading. Kim Lamb will lead the discussions. Please register for the series in the Lobby and place the four scheduled discussions on your calendars!

  • Selections and dates:
    • October 18, 6:00-8:00 pm A New Day in the City Sokol/Owens (Books cost $13 and will be ordered by the church office based on registration, to be available September 1)
    • January 17, 6:00-8:00 pm Tattoos on the Heart Boyle (19 copies available from the Wake County Libraries)
    • March 28, 6:00-8:00 pm When Spiritual But Not Religious Is Not Enough Daniel (6 copies available from the Wake County Libraries)
    • May 30, 6:00-8:00 pm Selection to be based on previous conversations

    We will provide nursery care for those parents who both would like to participate in the discussion. We hope that our discussion will be robust, and our participants will represent a broad section of the church!
