Welcome to Adult Discipleship!
As we know, grow and show Christ’s love for the world, Mentor UMC offers you the chance go deeper in your walk with Christ and connect with others on the journey. Everyone is on a path. At Mentor UMC we see God at work in every stage of your path and want to help you get on a deeper path of knowing God and others.
Types of Groups available: Short-term Groups: These groups range from 6-10 weeks in length. They typically focus
on a particular book, theme, life stage, need, or idea. The group is facilitated by a small
group leader and hosted at the church, private home, or restaurant. Groups start
throughout the year and are updated regularly on the church website. September and
January are great times to get involved in a short-term group.
Disciple Bible Study Groups: These groups offer a 32 week in-depth study and
discussion of the bible. There are five different courses you can choose from, it is
recommended to start with “Disciple 1 (the red book)” which is an overview of the Old
and New Testaments. Functioning much like a college class there is weekly reading and
preparation required as well as a facilitator. Groups start the week after Labor Day,
conclude before Memorial Day, and do include holiday breaks.
Studying Scripture, prayer, and personal accountability. These are things we all strive for in our Christian walk, but how much better if we have support?
Journey Groups are small groups that meet for this purpose, to help lead all onto a path of Christ-centered discipleship. In this environment, members experience a deepening of relationships with each other and a chance to explore topics more thoroughly.
Small groups strengthen the church and your spiritual life. Mentor UMC has a goal of more than 300 small group members this fall to further build our church community and provide you with this vital tool. Groups choose different topics based on things like the current worship series or a published study.
