Wednesday Group Opportunities at 7:00 p.m.
4th Floor - Room 401/403
Corporate Prayer is an important part of the life of the church, along with worship, sound doctrine, communion, and fellowship. The early church met regularly to learn the doctrine of the apostles, break bread, and pray together. When we pray together with other Christians, the effects can be extremely positive. Corporate prayer edifies and unifies the body as we share our common faith.

International Bible Study
The International Bible Study meets on Friday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 PM in the Peoples Church building, room 404. This group is for internationals, both students and recent graduates who have begun their careers. Every week individuals from all different backgrounds come together to experience life in the Body of Christ and gain a deeper understanding of the Bible in order to be obedient disciples of Jesus Christ. Come join us!
Christian discipleship is the process by which we grow in our knowledge and understanding of Jesus and are equipped by the Holy Spirit, who resides in our hearts, to overcome the pressures and trials of life, becoming more like Jesus.
Often, this process requires a one-on-one discipleship relationship. We have individuals ready to partner and walk with you on your journey with Christ. To learn more about starting the discipleship process or about becoming a discipleship partner, contact Petros Yefru at firstname.lastname@example.org.
