Adult DISCIPLESHIP

God is at work in and through our growing together.

 

There are three major components of discipleship at SCPC. The Groundings Experience is the
cornerstone experience for discipleship at SCPC. Adult classes help us grow in our understanding and skill and small groups help grow us together in faith community.

Groundings

 

It is not a class that you complete. It is an experience that will set you on a lifelong journey. Through prayer, a fresh look at the teachings of Jesus, and discussion, participants of Groundings put what they learn into practice at home, work, school, and play. In a prayerful and confidential community Groundings participants share their experiences of following Jesus into the world for the sake of the world. The end goal is for each person who participates to notice God at work in and around them and offer themselves to be a part of that work. Through the experience they also discern where and how to help others experience Groundings.

Small Groups

 

Small groups are a way to foster relationships and grow deeper in faith together. Groups study and discuss the sermon, the Bible, and other Christian writings. It's a great time to share accomplishments and pray together through the tough times. Groups are typically between 8 and 15 people, and meet weekly, twice a month, or monthly depending on the preference of the group. There are long term and short term groups that meet all different times of the week. New groups form regularly. We invite you to consider joining an existing or newly formed group.
