adult institute of discipleship (I.D.)
Our identity is rooted in several factors: relationships, priorities, purpose, habits, and worldview. Part of the central work of the Christian life is to find our identity in Christ. This Fall, we launch a new component of our Christian community. Rather than using the name Sunday School, we’re calling it “The Institute of Discipleship,” or I.D. for short.
The focus of I.D. will be to help grow our identity in Christ by deepening our relationships, challenging our priorities, clarifying our purpose, restructuring our habits and redefining our worldview around the kingdom of God.
Every Sunday from 9-9:50am, we will offer classes in this Institute of Discipleship for adults. Rarely will these be simple lectures; we hope every class engages you on many levels, including by building connections with your fellow brothers and sisters. Most courses will be either 6 or 12 weeks long, so we will constantly be beginning new opportunities for study and community. We are always open to your ideas for upcoming courses. Here are the course options:
Philippians - The First Book of the Bible You Should Read (6 weeks)
The Good and Beautiful God - A Curriculum for Christ-like-ness (22 weeks)
Starting December 2
Prophecies about Messiah - an in-depth study of the prophets’ roles in preparing us for the coming King (4 weeks; this will be the only adult class during the month of December)
