Discipleship Groups

…teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you.

Matthew 28:20a

Discipleship Groups seek to lead people along a path toward a deepening relationship with Jesus. Our hope is that  as you grow and abide in Christ, connecting in relationships with others, you will be equipped to better serve and share the Gospel. We desire to walk with Jesus daily in a Transformed Journey leading to personal application.

Don't Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table: Adult Coed
Leader: Ben & Katie McMinn
Room: C120
Recommended Book Cost: $13
Louie Giglio relates how he was feeling attacked, and in a moment of weakness, he fired off an angry text to a friend. It took him five minutes to compose the message--paragraphs of woe about the one causing harm. The nine-word text back from his friend simply said, "Don't give the enemy a seat at your table.” Louie relates how this simple text led him to realize that he had been allowing his adversary--the devil--into the conversation going on in his mind. He had, in fact, been giving his enemy a seat at his table. In turn, this led Louie to Psalm 23, one of the most loved texts in all of Scripture that has comforted God's people throughout the ages. As group members go through this study, they will see they have the power, through Christ, to take back control of their thoughts and emotions. As they uncover the meaning behind the words of Psalm 23, they will discover that God is saying they do not have to give a place to fear, envy, or despair in their lives. Ultimately, they will walk away with practical ways to defeat the enemy's lies and know how to experience peace and security in the midst of any situation as they learn to listen to voice of their Shepherd.
