BRAND NEW EPIC COURSES

New courses starting January 9-February 13

Transformational Track

  • Course Title: Deeply Formed Life
  • Primary Resource: The Deeply Formed Life: 5 Transformational Values to Root Us in the Way of Jesus
  • Facilitator Teacher: Amy French, MTH A
  • Description: Most believers live in the state of “being a Christian” without ever being deeply formed by Christ. This course will equip us to restore balance, focus, and meaning for our souls and will serve as a roadmap to live in the richly rooted place we all yearn for: a place of communion with God, a place where we find our purpose. We will discover five values that can spark internal growth and help us reconcile our Christian faith with the complexities of society and culture.

  • Primary Resource: The Reluctant Witness: Discovering the Delight of Spiritual Conversations
  • Facilitator Teacher: Chris French, MTH 2nd Floor (Middle School Room)
  • Description:New research finds that Christians are less involved in spiritual conversations today than we were twenty-five years ago. This course will equip us address our fears, awkwardness, and to grow our confidence as we discover that spiritual conversations can actually be a delight. We will unpack what God’s Word says about spiritual conversations and dig into habits to equip us to grow in our confidence so that we can experience fruitful everyday conversations that bear witness to the hope we have in Jesus Christ.

 Join us this Valentine’s Day as we Share the Love with Lily and Jessica DuBose of Lily’s Toy Box. Wanting to help her community after Hurricane Harvey, Lily DuBose started collecting toy donations to give to kids whose belongings were lost in the storm. Since then, Lily has shared God’s love by providing thousands of toys to kids here in Houston, surrounding states and across the country! Come hear Lily’s story, fellowship over lunch, and donate funds to help children heal through the gift of new toys. 

The cost is $12.00 per person, please register HERE.

DISCIPLE GROUPS

FOCUS: We encourage each group to begin with an 8-week study called Essential Guide to Becoming a Disciple by Greg Ogden.  From there, groups can continue on with other impactful discipleship books.

COMMITMENT: Each group will establish and agree upon expectations for the group:

  • Determine when and where the group will meet.
  • Trust that God will move and call the group and individuals to take steps of faith
  • Discern what God is doing and respond
  • Pray for each other and offer accountability

GROUP CONVENER: The convener is the one who keeps the group on track and keeps the group moving. The convener might be the person that starts the group.

GROUP COACH: A coach will be assigned to a group and will come alongside the convener of the group to help launch, resource, help a group stay the course, discern multiplication, discuss group dynamics as needed and pray for a group.  The coach does not meet with the group, but is in constant contact with the Convener.

LAUNCH A DISCIPLE GROUP: The church will host a gathering to help individuals start a Disciple Group.  When you express interest in participating in a group, we will share details of an upcoming gathering.  Are you ready to participate and experience the life changing joy and hope found in a Disciple Group?
