Sermon Title: The examples of Jesus and Wesley.
Scripture: Matthew 4: 18-19
The way of making Disciples is in our church DNA. To study Wesley is to study the early church. All Christians have the ability to make disciples. No special gifts are needed, we all can learn how to be disciples and make more disciples. Today we will look at discipleship through our Christian heritage and see what we can learn about making Discipels today.

Sermon Title: Moving from Growing Deeper to reaching outward
Scripture: Acts 2:43-47
When we think about discipleship today, we often think about growing deeper on a personal level. But discipleship is more than personal spiritual growth. True growth is realized when we reach out to those around us and share our lives with others. Deep discipleship involves living life with others. We love and support each other along the journey of life. Today we will look at how our Journey groups can make this a reality.

Sermon Title: Moving from Member to Disciple Maker
Scripture: Hebrews 5:11-14
Discipleship is about more than church membership. Multiplying disciples is not a church growth plan, though that will probably happen. The focus of our discipleship is raising up mature followers of Jesus who can replicate their results. Every member can become a disciple maker. It is what we are all called to do.

Sermon Title: Moving from programs to relationships
Scripture: 1 Cor 16:19
People today crave relationships. We live in a fragmented and pluralistic society. Our electronic devices give us a false sense of community. But we need each other now more than ever. Gone are the days of lecture style bible studies and programs that are more entertainment than spiritual meat. Today we will explore how our discipleship model can fill the need for relationship.
