Upcoming Classes – Disciple’s Journey Series:
Once we accept God’s free gift of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus, the journey of following Jesus, or the process of sanctification begins. It’s a lifelong journey…of transformation, from self-absorbed consumer to a Christ-focused investor. To succeed in this journey requires intentional efforts toward growth. Gateway Church is offering a series of sign posts for this journey, a new Discovery Class called A Disciple’s Journey to find & follow the path Jesus laid out for us.
Sessions will meet Wednesday Nights from 7:00-8:30pm at the Parkesburg Campus, on a repeated rotation. You can participate in all 6 tracks in sequential order, or plug into the tracks that most interest you, or best fit the needs in your current journey with Jesus. The entire class can be completed over 6 month’s time, in 24 weeks. Each track meets for 4 sessions. Here is a breakdown of the tracks, in sequential order:
