Discipleship options

Fall 2017 Discipleship

September 10 will mark the return of our Discipleship Training on Sunday evenings. We seek to offer classes each term that teach scripture as well as how to apply it to every day life. Currently we have four options on the schedule. Descriptions of each class are below.

In addition to Adult Discipleship we have something for all ages. We will be offering childcare for birth-2 years, Angel Choir from 3-K5, RA and GA for grades 1-5, and youth choir/discipleship from grades 6-12. We will begin at 6 PM each week.

If you need more information about our Sunday evening schedule beginning September 10, please contact Matt Monk at education@communitybaptistmaylene.com or call/text at 205-368-8785.

Option 1: Financial Peace University


Dave Ramsey and his teaching team will walk you through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more. Local classes are made up of small groups of people who live in your area and are a great way to share ideas, be encouraged, and stay motivated. One Financial Peace University membership per family is all you need to get started in a class. The membership kit cost $102.30 (includes shipping). Registration and membership purchase can be done by clicking on Financial Peace University Registration. Please see Matt Monk if you need help in purchasing the membership kit.

Option 2: Teach Us to Want

In five sessions, based on her 2015 Christianity Today Book of the Year Teach Us to Want: Longing, Ambition and the Life of Faith, author and Bible teacher Jen Pollock Michel takes women on a brave journey through their many desires, longings, and ambitions. Featuring real-life stories of women wrestling with their desires—Jen offers insight from her own life, dives deep into Scripture and asks what it means to desire as a Christian.

Option 3: The Book of Galatians

The book of Galatians is a guide to finding freedom in Christ. Just as the Galatian church was slipping back into the dangerous rituals of the Jewish religious system, Christians today add parameters around Scripture that hinder them and that Christ never intended. This study will use Paul’s explanation of the gospel to the Galatians as a guide to get us to understand how the Gospel can only remain the Gospel of Christ if it is solely for God’s glory alone.

Option 4: Unfolded

Most men know specific Bible stories, but do they know the overarching story of the Bible? While the Bible is a collection of 66 books, the reigning theme that still holds eternal implications for our lives today is God’s powerful story of redemption.

Join Eric Geiger over 8 sessions to explore this story of a God who loves us, longs to be known by us, and ultimately invites us into His story. Though there are many heroes in the Old and New Testaments, you’ll discover the one true Hero of our faith: Jesus.
