Faith Formation Classes | Praise at the Bridge | Pastor's Class | Wednesday Nights | Community Workshops | Faith Formation Team
Jesus taught his Disciples through parables, healings, and sermons. Disciple means “student.” In the Great Commission, Christians are called to teach and make students of God's love for all of humanity and Creation. Bible studies and sacred conversations are a means to learn and discover this love. Our diverse opinions and experiences help us to see a bigger image of God, Jesus, and the Church. Differences of opinion are seen as opportunities to grow in greater understanding. Here, you will find friendly places to have sacred conversations and grow in Christ.
We currently offer three multigenerational Sunday classes. Each class is led by clergy, retired clergy, and laypersons.
The "Wildwood" class studies a variety of Christian topics and specific books of the Bible.
The "Parlor" class studies a variety of spiritual series based on Christian traditions, beliefs, and books of the Bible.
The "Covenant" class follows the "Travel Guide to Christian Faith" curriculum and allows students to discover the meaning and beauty of our faith traditions and rituals using everyday language. This is a great class for those entering the church for the first time or those getting familiar with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
The "Godly Play" class is for children up to age twelve. This class is very interactive and helps children use their imagination, curiosity, and exploration skills to learn about God, Jesus, and the traditions of the church. Children also learn the handbells.
Praise at the Bridge is our new family and community ministry for those who are new to the Christian faith, have little experience with a church or looking to be involved with a church. Each session, we will introduce a theme in the Bible to help you teach your children, or your grown-up family, about God, Jesus, and the Church. You will never be asked to join the church. You can expect a meal, a story lesson, arts and crafts, music, and prayer. (This is replacing our Vacation Bible School because we want a better relationship with your family). Come out to be apart of family and partake in fellowship, food and fun. Follow us on Facebook for more information.
VBS 2018 - "The Story of Joseph"
If you are trying to decide to join our church family, ask to be baptized, or have already joined our church family and unfamiliar with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), then this class is for you. This can be done individually or in a group.
Looking for something a little different? Wednesday night is a worship/study group that is safe to worship God through sacred conversation, asking a lot of questions, communion, and prayer. The purpose of this service/study is to inspire each other to follow our passions, callings, and vocations. We open with potluck and community prayer to kick things off. A great entry point to coming back to church or entering a church for the first time. Children, up to age twelve, are welcome to participate in Godly Play and learn to play handbells during the meeting. Youth and young adults share in the group conversation and worship.
Throughout the year, we will host community workshops on a variety of topics. In 2019, we will hold Grief Support, Funeral Planning 101, Liturgical Art, Teen Dating, Premarital and Marriage Classes, Bible Basics, and more. For updates, follow us on our social media sites. Discover something for everyone.
The support group will meet on Thursdays, at Boyce Ditto Public Library in Mineral Wells, from noon to 1 p.m. Contact the church office for more information and sign-up.
This team makes the greatest impact on people's lives. Do you want to be a part of nurturing disciples? Educating ourselves and our families is a top priority of our church.
