Jesus gave his followers a mission: “Go make disciples of all nations.” At Trinity Church it is our desire to fulfill our part of this mission and not just “do church” but invite people to become disciples of Jesus and then help them grow to the point where they can disciple others. Though discipleship encompasses everything we do from worshipping together, to communicating with God, sharing the good news of Jesus, and serving those in need; all this flows from learning and training with other followers of Jesus. We understand that folks are at different points in their pursuit of God as well as dealing with the challenges of life. It is in this vein that we have various kinds of Discipleship Training.


DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING

Starting Wednesday, January 16th, small groups will be starting up again. We believe that community and life change happens in small groups!  Don’t just attend church, make the next step and get connected to the church – join a small group.
