Announcements for 10 September 2017

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

 

DISCIPLESHIP SEMINARS (DS)

In today's DS we will cover: "Exhortations". This is the last session on the Book of Hebrews and will be led by Yee Kiat. We will break for 2 Sundays and resume with a new series called "Disciple One Another Workshop" on the 1 October. Please refer to the announcement  below for more details on this new series.

 

DISCIPLE ONE ANOTHER WORKSHOP | SUNDAY 1, 8 & 15 OCT | 11.00 AM – 1230 PM

Jesus calls all of his disciples to make disciples of others. Every Christian is to obey Christ by helping someone else to know Jesus and grow to become more like him. Biblical discipleship is by the whole church,, for the whole church; it's not about starting a programme or learning a methodology. 

Here at GBC, we want to foster a culture of discipleship that is in line with what the Bible says. This means that we should all be encouraging someone else towards Christ-likeness through our relationships with one another. What does this look like in practice? How do we get started? 

Come for the Disciple One Another workshop on Sunday, 1, 8 and 15 Oct from 11-1230pm! Everyone is welcome! It will be held in room 310 A, B & D.

Here's an outline of what each session will cover:

1) 1 October : What is discipleship? Why should we make disciples? What does it look like for the whole church to be involved in making disciples?  

2) 8 October : How do I get started discipling someone else? How do I go about reading the Bible with another person?

3) 15 October : We will have two panel discussions for men and women, so that we can learn from the experiences of others who have been actively involved in discipling others. We will also have the opportunity to connect with others who are keen to disciple others.
