Intentional Discipleship

   And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 (NRSV)

  1. Exploring – We will gather with a few others to explore “Who is Jesus?” and “What is Church?” and “How being a part of a local church community helps me to be a disciple?”
  2. Connecting – Two different gatherings for dinner, discussion, and to hear from other’s experiences.  The first gathering wrestles with the question, “What does it mean to be connected to God through Jesus Christ?”  It is a look at scripture that points to the God revealed in Jesus Christ.  The second considers Spiritual Practices to help us walk with worship, and meeting with a few others.
    • August 4, 5:00 PM – “Connect To God Through Jesus Christ”
    • August 18, 5:00 PM – “Connect To Others Through Jesus Christ”
  3. Growing – We recognize that a huge part of discipleship is organic as we encounter the Holy Spirit in our everyday lives, but this is the intentional strategy and some offerings of Riverside to move a person towards growing deeper in their relationship with Jesus.
    1. Gathering of Disciples – A Once a month gathering for dinner and a time to introduce key learnings and practices of discipleship.
      • September 29, 5:30 PM
      • October 20, 5:30 PM
      • November 17, 5:30 PM
    2. Small Groups – Groups of men or women who meet weekly to do life together and to dig into scripture together.
    3. Mission Disciple Training Groups – The word “mission” means “sent”. These groups are for those who want to commit to meeting to be empowered to be “sent” to their families, friends, neighbors, places of work and the world as disciples.  The goal is to help you be a God loving, World loving, non-creepy, good news living, occasionally verbally sharing disciple.
