Discipleship Groups

Connect in a discipleship group
and find encouragement

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another and all the more as we see the Day approaching" (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Christ's church was meant to be like a BLAZING FIRE--hot, impassioned, and enduring! Without a vibrant connection to a healthy congregation, many "lone ember" Christians soon fade away in their faith. In contrast, believers who have encouragement and accountability in some sort of discipleship group or ministry team will be personally challenged to “burn on” in ever-increasing intensity as they walk with Christ. We firmly believe that EVERY believer needs some sort of small group connection. Here are the current small group offerings:

Facing Fear, Finding Faith

Date: Starting April 17 (10 sessions)
Time: 2:00 PM
Meeting Location: Meeting Online via Zoom

Fear, worry, and anxiety are hallmarks of the human experience, yet our loving Father longs for us to be filled with His peace. God has given us numerous commands to “fear not” in the Bible and He has invited us to “cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).

How do we escape the bondage of fear and walk in faith?

Facing Fear, Finding Faith is a study designed to introduce you to a biblical model for overcoming fear while increasing your faith. This model provides a practical, useful step-by-step process for moving beyond fear toward a trusting relationship with Jesus Christ. Starting April 17, this 10-week (online) Zoom group will meet Fridays at 2:00 PM. Questions? Contact Greta@calvaryfargo.com.
