Following the Holy Spirit, we exist to create a movement of disciple-making disciples, in Greensboro and around the world. During this season when we aren’t able to gather together in person, we want to provide you with some helpful tools and resources to not only grow as a disciple but also be a faithful witness to the hope we have in Christ.

 

As a church family, we want to ask ourselves this question: “How can we use this season to grow as disciples of Christ while making him known to others through our words and actions?” 

 

We want to use this time well. We don’t want to waste this moment, rather we want to trust that God will redeem it. The following verses serve as a guide for us in this unprecedented season:

  • “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance” - Proverbs 21:5 (ESV)

  • “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time because the days are evil.” - Ephesians 5:15–16

  • “And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” - Philippians 1:9–11

  • “We have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” - Colossians 1:9–10
