Thanks for visiting Maranatha Forest Lake’s Adult Discipleship Group page!
All Christians for all time are called to be Jesus’ disciples.
It’s a vital part of connecting with God as He’s framed our life here on earth to be lived in community. What’s YOUR discipleship strategy?  We’d love to help you figure that out.
There are many opportunities at Maranatha to get plugged into a group during the week.
Check them out below and please feel free to email grow@realchurch.org if you have any questions.
Here’s to growing together!

Pastor Michelle Ingram
Discipleship Pastor

The War Room: with John Horgan & Diane Kinney, room 172 Topic: We will be studying both the old and the new testaments to help us talk through conversations about a veteran‘s life.

Acts: The Holy Spirit at Work in Believers:  “Acts serves at least four primary functions in the New Testament. First, Acts serves as a bridge between the Gospels and Paul’s letters. Second, Acts tells how the church grew in numbers, geographically, in the cultural scope of its mission, and in theology. Third, Acts serves as a guide for faith and apology. Fourth, Luke emphasizes the power of the Holy Spirit. If we miss Luke’s emphasis on the Holy Spirit, we miss his greatest purpose in writing.” Join Pastor Michelle Ingram beginning January 14th, from 8 – 9 a.m., room 171.

Seeking His Hem: Women’s Small Group Study in room 172 with Karen and the ladies. We all deal with interruptions. They’re aggravating. Sometimes infuriating.
