Wednesdays at Waterstone 

6-8pm | beginning September 21

One of the great temptations of the spiritual life is to believe that if I were in another season of life, I could be more spiritual. The truth is that spiritual transformation takes place as we embrace the challenges and opportunities associated with each season of our life. Ruth Haley Barton

This fall join Waterstone as we focus on living and loving like Jesus. By gathering together on Wednesdays we aim to grow as disciples, connect with one another, and share the way of Jesus with our neighbors. 

We believe many of us are hungry for a deeper level of discipleship in our lives—we’re hungry for more Jesus and more growth.

WHat is discipleship at Waterstone?


Becoming a disciple of Jesus

  • Following Jesus is reorienting our lives around the idea of becoming more like him. As we explore, experience, and encounter the person of Jesus Christ, he shapes, molds and transforms us more into his person and his likeness so that we can follow him into the world with his love.

Commit to a class each semester

  • Waterstone will offer a core class and an elective each semester, so we encourage you to sign-up for the class that fits your discipleship need for your current season of life.

Classes for everyone

  • On Wednesdays there will be a learning opportunity for each age group. Kids in elementary and younger need to be registered ahead of time and commit to the semester alongside adults so that we can properly prepare class materials and leaders.

DISCIPLESHIP Pathway AT WATERSTONE

CORE CLASSES

    

Practicing the Way of Jesus - Fall 2022

This course is designed to help us break free from the ruts of discipleship and step into the kind of deep, authentic, transformative relationship with Jesus many of us long for. Through learning to become like Jesus and live for others, we can rediscover the transformative power of Jesus in our lives.

Overcome - Fall 2022 and all subsequent semesters

Overcome is a group experience for anyone pursuing mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Under the guidance of trained facilitators, group members meet weekly in a small group setting that emphasizes safety and respect while exploring biblical truths about hope in the midst of suffering.

The Essentials of the Faith - Spring 2023

For two thousand years, the church has confessed core beliefs that have held it together in unity and love. This class explores those essential doctrines and helps disciples of Jesus understand and live out those beliefs.

The Story of the Kingdom - Fall 2023

From beginning to end, the story of the Bible is a story of how God became King. This class covers the basics of that grand narrative and invites them to participate in God’s bigger story.

What about Small Groups? Should I attend a class too?

  • New to Small Groups: Here at Waterstone we intend to offer small groups primarily as places of community and connection. These groups will also facilitate discussions about weekend sermons, or alternative curriculum, and will be open to you if you would like to join a new community. Reach out to Rachel Pyburn to be connected this fall. 
  • Current Small Groups: If you are in a current small group, reach out to your small group leader as your group may choose to attend discipleship class together. If this is the case, we would encourage you to find additional opportunities that you can meet up and connect as a community throughout the semester.
