to encourage spiritual growth
To help all people know Jesus Christ and grow in His image. “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” 2 Peter 1:3-8
The discipleship of adults is more than an exchange of information – it is a deeply personal, lifelong, spiritual journey of transformation that begins with salvation and continues until Christ returns or we are called home to live with Him. Spiritual growth for adults reflects this truth, transforming us into more faithful disciples of Christ. We are called by the Father, equipped by the Spirit, and sent by the Son to a world in need trusting that we will grow in God’s saving grace as revealed in the humanity and divinity of Jesus Christ.
More practically, our hope in the Adult Education Ministry is for every adult at GPC to be plugged into at least one group dedicated to meeting regularly for fellowship, Bible Study, and prayer. Take a look at what groups are meeting.
For options on Sunday mornings, follow the link for “Sunday Morning Groups.” For options throughout the week and groups that meet on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis, follow the link for “Bible Studies and Small Groups.” For options at our mid-week discipleship ministry, follow the link for “Wednesday Night Compass” and look for the options for adults.
If you have any questions about any of these groups or would be interested in exploring a new group of your own, please contact Pastor Jay ([email protected], 901-754-5195 x112).
“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.” -2 Peter 3:18
