Living Faith Groups


I am excited to announce a new discipleship process that we are using in our ministry.  The new process which focuses on groups of 2 has the following functions:

1. Character Development and Confession of Sins to One Another

2. Repetitive Bible Reading to develop hunger for the Lord and His Word in our quiet times.  Together, we share what the Lord is teaching us while keeping each other accountable for faith steps of obedience.

3. Praying intentionally for the lost by name.

He had saved this teaching to last because of its importance.
