a disciple-making experiment
“When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action.
And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.”
-Matthew 18:20 (MSG)
Our faith is based on relationships.
The Paired Up guides provide weekly prompts for disciple-making discussions between two people. Each participant is encouraged to practice daily scripture reading and prayer to nurture their faith between the conversations.
How it Works: Two people come together for weekly, 45-minute conversations over the course of 6-8 weeks. Worship celebrations serve as bookends to the conversations to introduce the topic and invite next step commitments.
Who is involved? Two people. One is a guide, One is a participant. Both engage the process equally. Serve as a guide or as a participant. You’ll serve as a guide before too long.
What are the topics? The guides are based on a four-fold journey of disciple-making that includes welcoming new people, making faith commitments, growing in our faith, and serving in our local communities.
Part 1- Who are my neighbors? Explore why reaching our and receiving new people is essential to disciple-making.
Part 2- What’s your story? Experience the power of story – your story- in sharing your faith with others.
Part 3 – Where are we going? Invest in growing your relationship with Christ, the church, and the community.
Part 4 – How will you serve? Claim the power of serving from your strengths.
