We have had a great January here at First Baptist Church, Lawton-Fort Sill. We had a wonderful Living Christmas Tree. The Devotional Challenge, the Missions Fair and the Ordination Service are significant times in the life of our church. It is a blessing and encouragement to recommit to Scripture, find ways to go out and make disciples, and to see men accept the call to ordination.
The time is here for Discipleship University! Discipleship is a critical component for maintaining and growing our relationship with our Savior and Father. I recently read a survey that found that 6 out of every 10 evangelical pastors believed their own church was not “doing well” at leading new believers and promoting spiritual growth through discipleship. We cannot be a healthy church and at the same time a church that does not train and encourage people in their personal growth. We need to be a part of Discipleship.
Discipleship University, DU, is going to meet at 5:00pm on Sunday evenings beginning February 9th. Come at 5:00pm on the 9th, have some coffee and snacks and hear from all eight of our facilitators. This gives you an opportunity to make a choice and sign up for a class. Classes will run weekly (except April 12th) until April 19th.
Come Sunday night February 9th at 5:00 pm and get signed up for a time of growth this spring. Take the step to live out 2 Timothy 3:16-17; “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
