ADULT DISCIPLESHIP

FORMING CHRIST IN US TOGETHER

The Holy Spirit wants to work in every one of us to make us more and more like Jesus—knowing him better, loving God and our neighbors and making disciples. And this doesn’t happen in isolation. At Friends Church, we believe we grow best when we’re in community with one another.

 

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
-Jesus, John 10:10

6:30 PM—PRAYERS ON THE JOURNEY

 

On his last journey to Jerusalem, Jesus met the questions, requests, and needs of those who came to him. How can their stories guide our prayers as we go to him? Led by Pastor David Hoovler in the FLC.

 

GROWTH GROUPS

 

Join a small group and experience the power of Christ in our midst as we live life alongside one another. These groups gather once a week or every other week for fellowship, study and prayer in hosts’ homes, at one of our church campuses, or at another location. 

Most groups will share a meal together before a time of study using video, book or devotional resources.
