What is Discover Path?
We have created a pathway to help you discover what it means to follow Christ and obey the things that He has commanded. Each session will help you to identify where you are in your walk with God and how you can grow in your relationship with him. All sessions are designed to last approximately 90 minutes and child care is available.
DCW: Discover Crosswinds
-Discover who we are, where we are going, and how you can connect with Crosswinds.
This is the perfect place for anyone new to Crosswinds to get to know us a little better. It’s a great opportunity to meet the staff, share a meal together, and hear about the exciting things that God has done and is in the process of doing here at Crosswinds. This session is informal, a free lunch is provided, and children are welcome.
D1: Come and See
– Discover what it means to have a relationship with God.
Are you a brand new follower of Christ or still checking out what it means to have a relationship with God? Or have you been away from your faith for some time and find yourself wanting a fresh start? Do you have a friend or co-worker who needs a relationship with Christ and you’re not sure how to explain salvation to them? Then this session is for you. We will focus on the story of God and His great love for us as well as our response to that love.
D2: Follow Jesus
– Discover what it means to imitiate Jesus.
One of the goals of a Christian is to grow in what’s called spiritual maturity, or in becoming like Christ. Unfortunately, spiritual maturity is not something that comes automatically. It’s a process that takes intentionality and discipline. During this session we look at the practices of prayer, Bible study, fellowship, and tithing in the life of every Christian and how those habits help us grow in our relationships with God.
D3: Live It Out
– Discover what it means to serve God and others.
God has been molding and shaping you for ministry since you were born. We want you to find a place of service here at Crosswinds and in our community that fits the unique way God has created and designed you. Your SHAPE (Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, and Experience) determines your ministry and our prayer is that as you journey through this session you will discover more about how you were SHAPED for serving God.
D4/D7: Go and Make
– Discover what it means to make disciples.
Jesus was very clear in Matthew 28 when he told his disciples to, “… go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.” Sometimes we struggle with understanding what it really means to go and make disciples. Sometimes we feel inadequate to do what Jesus told us. Where do we begin? What tools do we use? When do we know if we are making a difference? In these sessions we seek to equip and inspire you to make disciples of Jesus right where you are.
