A Weekly Tool for Personal Discipleship

a compliment to our weekly gatherings & pursuit of Jesus

It’s incredibly easy to have a second-hand relationship with Jesus today. We can download sermons, scour blogs, read books, share Facebook quotes and consume podcasts about the Christian faith all day long without ever engaging Jesus one-on-one in His Word. We’re not called to collect other people’s thoughts about God or his Word, but to hear from him directly through the words he wrote us.

Our weekly discipleship guides help folks at The Village interact with the text we’ll be teaching on that coming Sunday and talking about in community groups the following week. We want disciples to believe that they can read, study and grow through the Word with the help of the Spirit. These guides give us an opportunity to dig into the focal passage before hearing it preached or discussed, as well as helping all of us show up to Sunday morning gatherings and our group gatherings with a greater readiness to wrestle with the Lord’s leading.
