To maximize the possibility of your roommate request being met, please make sure that you both register as soon as possible because housing is assigned on a first come, first served basis.

“Go and make disciples of all the earth” (Matthew 28:19) With these parting words, Jesus invites all of us to be part of His plan! A transformational relationship with Jesus is meant to be lived to the fullest and given away to others. Since the beginning of Christianity, the natural overflow of being a disciple of Jesus has always been making disciples of Jesus.

But what does it mean to “be a disciple”? When Jesus says, “follow me,” how is this practically played out in our lives? Are we all disciple makers?

Join us this fall and discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, through a teaching/small group setting that will develop your habits, knowledge and practices as you follow Christ, and learn from Him, with the goal of teaching others also.

When & WhereGather's new study Disciple will take place 9/17-11/19/19 & 1/14-4/28/20 - except no meeting on 3/31 due to Spring break.

Tuesdays, 9-11am, Life on The Hill Church - 735 Silver Spur Road - RHE

Fee: The study will cost $40—please bring cash or a check made payable to Margaret Kong to the first day of the study on 9/17.
