Adult Discipleship at Arborlawn
At Arborlawn our mission is to become deeply committed followers of Jesus who seek to Meet God, Connect with People, and Live Missionally. We want to help you along on the path and provide opportunities for you to continually meet God; connect with people who wish to further their faith; and find ways to live out your faith hand in hand with the talents and passions you possess.
As a first step to Discipleship at Arborlawn we encourage all persons to take the “Discipleship Inventory.” This helpful tool will help show you where you are in your life of discipleship. After taking the Inventory, we invite you to contact Abby Johnson (email@example.com) to help talk through your results.
Small Communities of Real Relationships for Real Life
You weren’t meant to live this life alone, and you can’t follow Christ or become who you were meant to be in isolation. We all need a community of real relationships where we can be who we really are. Those relationships provide the support, encouragement, and accountability we need to live the lives God is calling us to live. That is why we have Group Life at Arborlawn.
Short Term Studies
“But those who don’t put into practice what they hear are like a person who built a house without a foundation.” Whether we are new to following Jesus or have been a committed disciple of Christ for our entire life, we all need to pay attention to our foundation. Perhaps it is just being laid, or it may have a few cracks in it from years of use, whatever the case, we all need a solid foundation of faith. Join us for this four-week study called, “Foundations” beginning Sunday, February 5. Each week we will examine the practices and content that we consider essential for following Jesus. This study will meet in the Chapel during the Sunday School hour, beginning at 9:45. Look for more information in the coming weeks. To RSVP for this study contact Abby Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Saints and Sinners
Sisters By Grace
This women’s Bible study is a diverse group of women of all ages, both married and single, whose mission is to support and encourage each other to become the women that God has called us to be. We do this through small group discussions of scripture and Christian topics and direct application to our personal lives. When: 9:45 AM Where: Room 224
The Sojourners seek to learn, with media and various speakers, about Christian life using the Bible, life, and stories. They give time and money to good causes, and support each other in illness, bereavement, misfortunes, and celebrations. They are mostly retirees, but are open to all ages. The class enjoys fellowship and parties in homes of members. They believe fun is consistent with the joy of a Christian life, so jokes (clean) are not only allowed but appreciated. When: 9:45 AM Where: Room 210
Young Adult Sunday School
This new gathering is designed for young adults from college age through their 20’s. We meet in room 224 @ 9:45 and always have free breakfast and coffee available for all who attend.

Currently our discussions focus on the intersection of scripture with current events and culture in light of our collective tradition, experience, and reason. We can’t wait to welcome you!
