This is our final week in our series, 'The Portrait Of A Disciple'. In it, we address the issue of despair, and how we respond to the challenges of following Jesus in a world that has largely rejected him.
Following Jesus isn’t always easy, in fact it seldom is, even Jesus’ own teaching can seem hard. The internal pressures of being a disciple can only be faced as we look beyond the ‘now’ and see the end result of what Jesus is accomplishing.
Join us as we move toward the close of our preaching series, 'The Portrait of a Disciple'.
Key Text: John 20:19-21
"A servant is not greater than his Master". That means we'll live the same way he did—as witnesses to the way, proclaimers of the truth, and examples of the life.
Join us for the next part of our 'Portrait of a Disciple' series
Key Text: John 13:1-17
To follow Christ is to follow his example (and attitude) of humble servant-hood.
Join us this week as we explore the surprising reality of the significance of servanthood.
The life of a disciple is a life of continual worship—but not just any worship. We all worship, even those who aren't followers of Christ. The point that sets a disciple apart is the object of our worship.
To follow Christ is to worship him as the supreme object of all our affections.

Further establishing the foundations of discipleship, this session goes back to the reality of carrying the cross of Christ as being the core concept of Biblical discipleship.
Key Text: Luke 5:27-32
Some believe that discipleship is like 'advanced Christianity'—only available for the more seasoned follower of Christ. Join us this week as we bust that myth.
Discipleship has always been deeply rooted in the gospel of grace. I hope you can join us as we celebrate the greatest news in all the world, and the simplest but most profound of all invitations—"Come, follow me!"
Key Text: John 21:15-22
