First Baptist Church is excited to present The Dance of Discipleship: Learning the Steps to Growing in the Faith. This is a nine month series (September 2011 – May 2012) that will explore living in a growing and vibrant relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe this relationship is very much like a dance. It is not a solo project. Following Christ is not a lonely trek or a systematic growth into higher levels of knowledge. Discipleship in its truest form is a joyous love relationship with Christ, our husband, who leads us while we his bride follow in an unending blissful dance of joy.
We will explore the different steps and rhythms that Jesus teaches in the Bible about living that life of love with him. We will begin with baby steps (a slow dance!) so don’t be intimidated, but before it is over we pray that the beating music of the gospel will have saturated your heart and life. Like our last series (“Gospel Centered Homes”) This series will be devoted to the intensive study of the Word of God. We will also include several panel discussions where we will have Christians from different stages in their lives discussing the various subjects we are studying through preaching. We will also have question and answer sessions so that you can ask questions regarding what we are teaching or about an issue that you have been dealing with.
This worship series will run in connection with our AWANA children’s ministry which is for all children up to the sixth grade. AWANA stands for “approved workmen are not ashamed,” and it is a ministry which seeks to immerse children in the Bible by helping them know it and apply it to their lives. It is part Boy/Girl Scouts and part Vacation Bible School, and its overall goal is to train children to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
This all begins on September 11, 2011 at 6:15. We hope that you will come and invite others to come with you. If you have any questions please contact us at 812-294-1431
