I have been thinking a great deal about our fledgling group out in West County St. Louis and both the need and opportunity we have to grow both deeper and wider. Though we are connected to a well established and mature church (Central Presbyterian, Clayton Campus) we need to be working on how we, as the West County campus of Central, grow in maturity.
Most of the programs Central offers tend to be Clayton based and therefore not always easily accessible to our folks. With that in mind, I wanted to begin building a menu of things for our folks based here in West County. First on the menu: What Christians Should Believe... this is 13 week (a quarter) one-on-one meeting with the pastor (me) walking through the fundamentals of our faith and how it should impact our lives.
It is based on the book Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe by Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears. If you are a man looking to go deeper in your faith through study and mentoring, contact me and we'll get started. I am looking to work with four men this quarter but if more show interest we will schedule you for the next quarter. If you are a lady looking for an opportunity to be mentored by either walking through this book or doing something else, please let me know and we will get a mentoring relationship set-up for you.
Lord willing in the next couple of months we will add more things to the menu... perhaps a weekend seminar or a mid-week class. Until then, let me know if you would like to take advantage of this appetizer!
