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!
