Learn & Apply God's Word
Participate in a Ministry
Time in Solitude with God
Identify a regular time each day to be alone with God for a minimum for twenty minutes reading the Bible and prayer. Also helpful is the use of a devotional guide such as Doug Hood's Heart & Soul available from the church.
Time in Community with Others
One hour each week, spend time with one or more people reading the Bible and discussing the application to life today. Also share how your faith is growing or faith challenges you are facing. This may be done with a spouse, children, or friends. Make it enjoyable with a beverage and snacks.
Time Sharing Your Faith with Another
Our faith expands richly by sharing with another person how we are personally experiencing God or what we are discovering by our personal reading of the Bible. Be intentional and do this once or twice each year with different people like colleagues at work or friends in social circles.
