Discipleship lies at the heart of the Christian LIFE:
We want each person at Woodlawn to grow spiritually mature in Christ. Spiritual growth happens best in the context of relationships with fellow believers. Our Sunday morning gathering (rows) provides worship and teaching, but experiencing a growing faith and the love of God in smaller groups (circles) creates opportunity to walk alongside one another through the ups and downs of life. That's why it's important to move from rows to circles where we can follow Jesus together as His disciples. In rows, you are encouraged and equipped to live your life for Jesus. In circles, you are stuck like glue to what you need most when life gets hard: God and each other.
Disciple Groups become a gathering of friends who support and challenge each other to become more like Jesus by growing in three important relationships:
We want to move from rows to circles and from circles to service, growing in our Up, In, and Out relationships. In a Disciple Group you will discover the best way to live life is through Christ, with other Christians, on a mission.
Disciple Groups meet throughout the week at various times and locations. If you are interested in participating in a group or would like to start a conversation about finding the right one for you, let us know at the Connection Center or submit the web-form at the bottom of the page.
"From [Christ] the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." -Ephesians 4:16
