DISCIPLESHIP PATHWAY


We want to help you to soar with Christ and to mature as His disciples, healed and helpful to others.

Disciples love Jesus and live out their faith in the world. They are forgiving, loving, and generous. Disciples walk close with Jesus, make wise choices, and bless others.

To help you to mature into this, we offer a simple pathway:

Be in the Word. Be in community. Bless others.

Grace United provides opportunites for you to experience each of these. On Sundays and in our GU Classes, we teach truth for you to be able to walk close with Christ and not be deceived.

We welcome you into a Life Group that you have loving friends to process life, make wise choices, and to mature in Christ with.

And as you mature in faith and love, through ministry and missions opportunities, we encourage you to bless others by serving one another and by sharing the good news with those who are far from God.

GU CLASSES 101-401

We offer a new class every first Sunday of the month from 11:45-12:45 PM in the library. Everyone is welcomed to take every class. Yet, we're all on a journey with Jesus, so our monthly classes are designed for you to take the next steps for you to grow and mature in Christ starting right where you are.

101 level Discover God classes are for seekers and those who are young in their faith and anyone who wants to find out more about who God is and what He's like.

201 Pursue Growth classes are for those who know God and want to learn biblical disciplines or practice proven ways to spend meaningful time with God.

As you spend time with our Lord and grow, our God is faithful to mature you.

301 Build Character classes explore the life changing and world blessing traits and qualities that God seeks to build into maturing Christians.

We believe God matures us for the benefit of others.

The 401 level Bless Others classes are therefore designed to help you to apply your growing faith to serve others and to share Jesus with the world.
