Disciples are made when we pour ourselves into people’s lives. Jesus spent much of his time ministering to many, from small intimate settings to large crowds. But among them were the twelve who received most of Jesus’ time and attention. As a result, these men came to know him more intimately and were equipped by him to make more disciples.
We see Jesus’ approach to discipleship as a model to imitate. As a result, we offer Life-on-Life missional discipleship (www.lifeonlife.org) as one means to help our people become more spiritually mature disciples of Jesus Christ. It is a three-year discipleship journey with regular small group meetings, and hours spent in the word of God each week.
Paul instructed Timothy to, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15) This admonition was for Timothy as a preacher in his day but is also relevant to every Christian in every generation. God’s word will benefit people most when it is handled, “rightly.”
Simeon’s Trust is an organization (www.simeontrust.org) whose sole purpose is to equip church leaders to do this well. As a church, we offer these courses to help people gain skills that will help them grasp God’s word better, in order to get the most out of their reading and study of Scripture.
Come be a part of our Vacation Bible School! You don’t even have to be a member to participate.
It is a weeklong immersive program during the summer for children ages 4-11. We come together from 9 a.m.–noon to enjoy songs, games, teaching, snacks, crafts, activities, experiments, skits and more that all focus on one specific theme. Gulf Coast Brandon uses this special time to share Jesus and the amazing Gospel with the children in our congregation and our community. Parents are welcome to drop off their children for an exciting time of fun, faith and fellowship.
We can’t wait to see you there!
Planning for our summer program starts in February, and registration starts in May. If you have any questions about VBS, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
