Discipleship:

  • loving God and loving people in community.
  • intentionally learning Biblical principles and their application.
  • connecting with God and each other as we navigate life.

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

Sundays:
8:00 – 9:00 a.m.
Mighty Men of Valor:
with Greg Martz, ongoing, room 170 Topic: Deuteronomy

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.

When you do, you will embrace a life that’s richer and fuller than you’ve ever known before—a life radiant with joy. Books are available in The Warehouse.
