Spiritual Growth Resources

The word discipleship and the word discipline are the same word -- that has always fascinated me. Once you have made the choice to say, "Yes, I want to follow Jesus," the question is, "What disciplines will help me remain faithful to that choice?" If we want to be disciples of Jesus, we have to live a disciplined life.

- Henri Nouwen

During these days of isolation, it is important for us each to take individual responsibility for our spiritual growth and connection with God.

To assist with this, we have included some resources that you might find helpful for either your individual quiet time, or as you connect with others over the phone or online.

Spiritual Disciplines are exercises or practices that help us grow in spiritual depth and likeness of Christ.  Some common Spiritual Disciplines that have been practiced  through the centuries are prayer, bible reading and fasting. Many christians engage with God on a daily basis using spiritual disciplines and they may not be aware. Practices like devotions, S.O.A.P., prayer walking and journaling are just a few. There is a smorgasbord of disciplines that are available to us. Each week there will be a new discipline that helps apply the sermon to our lives.  Why not taste and see, so you can continue to grow more like Him.
