Discipleship Groups

Discipleship Groups

Tyrone Discipleship groups are using the Navigators2:7 Series®.

The name is taken from Colossians 2:7 where Paul encourages the believers in Colossae to walk in Christ “rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

The purpose of the study is to teach God’s people to walk with Christ, to learn to walk with one another in the Spirit of Christ, and to welcome those outside of the Church into the fellowship of God.

We will seek to do that by equipping each individual in how to
have a quiet time,
how to read the Bible devotionally,
how to pray individually and in groups,
how to memorize Scripture,
how to share our faith with unbelievers.

 

This is not a lecture series, but an interactive study in small groups where each individual is both encouraged and held accountable by the group. There are three books in the 2:7 series.  Each book takes eleven weeks to cover.  We will meet every Sunday night except for those weeks that we have shepherding groups.  So we should be finished with the first book the week before Christmas.  Then we will begin the second book in January and should complete it right before Easter.  And then the third book should be completed by the end of June.

Don’t worry if you have to miss a few Sundays throughout the year.  The commitment that you make to the group is that you will keep up with the devotional work even on the weeks that you are out of town, so that you can join in on the discussion when you come back.

Sunday School


Christian Education-9:00 a.m.

Even as adults, Sunday school is the perfect place to learn more about what it means to live and believe as a Christian. We have several  adult Sunday School classes to choose from as well as children’s classes for all ages.    A map with a list of classes can be found at the greeter center in the narthex.

Adult

Bible Basics -Elder Brian Berkey
The Minor Prophet book Zechariah is referenced several times in the Gospel accounts.  The restoration of Jerusalem is a prominent theme in addition to multiple Messianic prophesies of both the first coming of Christ and the second coming.  You are invited to join the Bible Basics class in the South Youth Room during the Church School hour.  This class starts out with a prayer time followed by the weekly lesson.  We have a seat for you!    

Intro into Hebrews-Pastor Mark Hudson
Join us as we enjoy the riches and wonder of Hebrews: possibly the greatest commentary on the Old Testament.  By studying Hebrews you will come away with the big picture of the Bible and see Christ at the center of all revelation.

Hebrews has everything: the gospel, the Old Testament, suffering, falling away, community, and exhortation to holy living.  But the focus is Christ, his life, his death, and how he fulfills all of God’s promises and opens heaven to believers.  Come and marvel at the glories of the gospel of Christ.  

Introduction to the Old Testament-Pastor Lawrence Bowlin
This class is a broad survey of the history, themes and highly significant actions that point to Christ and His covenant in each of the Old Testament books.  It’s more of a bird’s-eye approach to understanding the ‘Big Picture’ in the Old Testament rather than a worm’s-eye view of each individual story or each chapter and verse.  At the conclusion of this class, each individual should have a better understanding of how the books of the Old Testament fit together, what each book contributes to the New Testament, and how it benefits believers today.
