In 2021, we launched a new strategy for disciple-making that is built around D-Groups. In the Great Commission, Jesus made clear that making disciples is the work of everyone who follows Him. While that work can take on different shapes in the lives of different people at different times, our goal is to offer a clear pathway for us to walk together. D-Groups are groups of either 3-5 men or 3-5 women who meet together weekly for an intensive time of spiritual growth. These are high-commitment groups that meet for 12-18 months with the goals of growing relationships with God and one another, as well as preparing each member to be a disciple of Jesus who makes disciples. Meeting times and locations vary and are dependent upon each group's needs. If you are ready to get involved in a D-Group, you can fill out this form, or if you'd like to know more, contact email@example.com or stop by the info. desk at either Valley Creek campus any Sunday through September 11th.
