Disciple, according to Easton’s Bible Dictionary, is as follows: A disciple of Christ is one who,

Not only do we need weekly celebration and worship time as a corporate body, we also need a deeper relationship with fellow believers in order to grow in faith. A smaller, more intimate group is where we get to know one another personally, carry one another’s burdens, pray for one another and learn through relationships how to be more like Christ in practice. It’s where what we know is walked out in shoe leather.

In Phil. 4:9 Paul writes,

“The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.”

Jesus preached to many, many people, but always returned to His core group of “disciples” – teaching them, training them and breaking bread (fellowshipping) with them. He used a small group to equip the future leaders of the early church to change the world, and we believe this same approach is just as vital today.

At Tabernacle Baptist Church we have small groups, formerly known as D-Groups. There is one study lesson on Sunday mornings at Tabernacle at 9:30AM.  There is a different study that runs throughout the week. We are using “Right Now Media” as the source of our small group studies.

Please note that in order to comply with governmental recommendations with regard to Covid-19, masks and distancing may be required.

SMALL GROUP SCHEDULE:

We would be pleased to have you join us on Sunday mornings or our weeknight small groups.  If you are interested in checking out either of our current small group studies, please email us at tabernacle121@yahoo.com for more information. We welcome you and look forward to meeting you soon.

TEN COMMANDMENTS  | by Albert Tate – Brought to you by RIGHT NOW MEDIA

 

Join us on Saturday evenings at 6:30PM for our current small group entitled “The Ten Commandments” by Albert Tate, hosted by Yvonne & Brian Shafer.

 

Description:

Are the Ten Commandments just a list of rules we are supposed to obey? Do they still apply today? And if so, how do we apply the commandments to our lives?  This ten-session series will take us through the Ten Commandments and show us how we were first loved by God and what it looks like to love him in return. God wrote a love letter through his commandments so that we could know his heart and learn to love others in the same way.
