Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” — Mt. 28:18-20 NIV

Discipleship Behaviors:

The Scriptures identify certain marks that should characterize a Christian that we want to fan into flame. We believe these include, but aren’t limited to: Growing in the gospel, Living as family, and Living on mission

Discipleship Environments:

Because there is no one-size-fits-all discipleship program, we have a number of discipleship environments where people can connect and grow into a well rounded disciple of Jesus. While none of these spaces will do what only God’s Spirit can do, each of these ministries seeks to integrate Elmwood’s discipleship behaviors and encourage people toward a passionate relationship with Christ.

Adult Class: Offered on the first and third Sundays of each month, Elmwood’s adult classes provide a consistent opportunity to dig deeper into the truths of God and consider how these truths interact with our everyday life. Each fall, winter, and spring we hold a class designed to help Christ followers grow in their walk with Jesus in the context of local church community. Since Adult Classes go on during NextGen events, childcare (preschool-12th grade) is provided. We’d love for you to join us at 9am in Classroom B!

NextGen:  A place where the next generation can learn about Jesus, as they grow in their understanding of God’s word in the context of authentic relationships and mentorships. NextGen mornings (preschool-12th grade) at Elmwood are on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, from 9-10:15am.
