Current Series: "Going Small"
Many churches are trying to get bigger! What if the key to spiritual growth is by getting smaller? Jesus' disciples became world-changers. But how? Perhaps one of the most important lessons we learn from Jesus' disciple-making process is one we often overlook: Jesus made disciples in a small group context. This summer, we will look at some of the away-from-the-spotlight moments Jesus had with his disciples and how these moments were central in helping them become men and women who could lead the Church. Finally, we will ask how this small group principle fits into our life at PPUCC.
