COVENANT DISCIPLESHIP GROUP
Led by Rev. Alice Ford
Join us on Sunday, September 19 at 7:30am on Zoom
A Covenant Discipleship Group is a very specific act of Christian faith. They are based on a small group (5-7 people) that gather each week for no more than one hour to hold one another mutually accountable in their discipleship. These groups tend to generate strong bonds with one another in spiritually mature ways as we care for one another’s souls. Please contact Rev. Alice for more information or call the church office.
- A Covenant Discipleship group is 5-7 persons who meet together for one hour each week to hold one another mutually accountable for their discipleship. Groups tend to form based on the day and time people are available for a weekly meeting.
- There are no rules about the composition of groups. Many groups are composed of women and men together. Some are all men. Some are all women.
- Groups are usually composed of people from the same congregation. But, particularly in the case of a multiple church charge or circuit, a group may comprise people from several congregations.
- The purpose of the weekly meetings is mutual accountability and support for discipleship. The group is guided by a covenant they write, shaped by the General Rule of Discipleship:
To witness to Jesus Christ in the world
and to follow his teachings through
acts of compassion, justice, worship and devotion
under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
