Faith in Jesus opens us up to a whole new world of possibilities as we grow deeper in our knowledge, love, and service of God. We’d like to be a part of your journey of faith. That's why we want you to know who we are, what we believe, and where we're going.
God wants all of us to grow in fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism and worship. It's by balancing those five purposes that we live out God's plan for our life.
We’d like to join you in your spiritual journey. One place to start is with our Christian Life and Service Seminars (CLASS 101-201-301):
CLASS 101: Discovering Church MembershipCLASS 101 is a one-session, basic introduction to the church designed to clearly explain who we are and what we believe. By the end of Class 101, you’ll have an understanding of what it means to be committed to Jesus Christ and to a church family, and will have an opportunity to become a member of StoneBridge Community Church if you choose. Because we believe that church membership is a necessary and important part of a person’s growth in Christ, if you decide that StoneBridge is not where God is leading you, we will be happy to help you find another church.
CLASS 201: Discovering Spiritual MaturityAll Christians eventually ask the same questions: How can I get closer to God? How do I grow in my faith? In this seminar, you will learn four habits that will energize and renew your spiritual life. First, you will learn practical steps to making time with God a powerful part of every day through Bible reading and study. Second, every growing Christian needs to talk with God in prayer. In this seminar you'll discover that God desires conversation with you and He's much more interested in you authentically talking with him than He is in critiquing your prayers. A third area that is covered is financial giving. Few things give a more useful glimpse into our spiritual lives than how we handle our financial resources. Finally, you'll clearly see the value of Christian relationships. At StoneBridge Community Church, there are lots of opportunities to gather with other members, attenders, and friends in our Growth Groups. Growth Groups are 10-13 week small group experiences offered three times a year, October-December, February-April, and June-August, with registration is September, January, and May.
CLASS 301: Discovering My SHAPE for MinistryWhen you became a Christian, you welcomed God's gift of salvation and the hope of eternal life. God also gave you a purpose and significance in your life. God has given each of us the opportunity to serve others and make a difference in others' lives. When you serve others in Jesus' name, that's called ministry. God didn't design ministry for just a few people with seminary degrees. At StoneBridge Community Church, we believe that every member of our church is a minister. In this three-week seminar, you will learn how God can use your Spiritual Gifts, your Heart (passions), your Abilities, Personality and Experiences to minister to others in need. This is discovering your SHAPE for ministry.
These seminars are offered throughout the year. Please contact the church office or use your blue Connection Card to register for any CLASS.
