Learn about connecting in community at Destin UMC
Pastor WB will lead a six week class on Tuesdays 6-7pm (starting September 17th, Room 707, Destin Life Center) which will explore what it means to connect, grow and serve as a follower of Jesus in the context of our Methodist church family.
A Disciple's Path combines a uniquely Wesleyan understanding of growth in God's love and grace with the time-tested practices of spiritual discipline expressed in the vows of membership when we promise to participate in the ministries of the church by our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. This program enables participants to practice those disciplines with others who are walking the same path through a six-week group experience.
Prayers: Prayer & Scripture Reflection. Spending time each day in prayer and in studying and reflecting on the Bible to experience the living word of hope in the written Word.
Presence: Corporate Worship & Small-group Community. Celebrating God's presence in worship with a faith community; experiencing Christian community in a small group to pray, learn and grow together.
Gifts: Financial Generosity. Practicing Christian stewardship through the biblical discipline of tithing.
Service: Gifts-based Service. Discovering our spiritual gifts and participating in God's work through the ministry of the church and in our daily lives.
Witness: Invitational Evangelism. Sharing the joy of our journey and inviting others to experience God's love and become followers of Jesus Christ.
This class is for anyone but will serve as a pathway to membership for those wanting to join the church.
