Growing in His Likeness
The Life of Christian Discipleship
Fall Study with the Rev. Dr. R. Leigh Spruill
Sundays, Sept 10 – Oct 15, 10:15 am
Join the Rev. Dr. R. Leigh Spruill for this six-week study (with small groups) as we learn to incorporate the promise of living abundantly in the power of the Kingdom more deeply in our own lives, in our parish, and in our city.
What is a disciple? Simply put, Christian disciples are those who have made it their highest commitment to live continuously with Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The goal of discipleship is threefold: 1) to learn from Jesus such that his character shapes our character; 2) to receive his power to do the things that Jesus does; and 3) to deepen our capacity to help others become disciples as well.
Over six weeks together on Sunday mornings and in small groups, we will consider all the resources that God has given us to live just such a life. This course is an opportunity for all to recommit their lives to Christ again or perhaps for the first time. While personal growth rarely occurs in a linear fashion or at a steady rate, the hopeful and undeniable witness of Scripture and church history is that those who continuously commit to Jesus as the center of life will by his grace experience genuine transformation.
