Not Safe – Discovering God’s Dangerous Plan For Your Life

Leader:  Kevin Brey
“Jesus didn’t die to make us safe. He died to make us dangerous.”  Many of us believe this, and yet, somewhere along the way we have chosen comfort over obedience, familiarity over faithfulness. The passion we once felt for the Gospel has ebbed, and we primarily seek out the easy path in life. Discipleship seems hard and hardly worth the trouble. However, this is not the life Jesus intended when He gave His all for us. There’s more to following Christ and it’s more worthwhile and life-changing than you first thought.

By Jesus becoming human, God made it possible for us to see him and hear his voice.  If we want to know what matters to God, all we need to do is look in the Bible to see what matters to Jesus.  If we want to know what God is doing in our world, we need only ponder the words of Jesus.  By learning more about the person Jesus was and is, we come to understand more clearly the people we were created to be.

Leaders:  Zaine Hedge, Inga Bailey
Partnerships, friendships, marriage, and more.  Relationships…  They all seem different. In reality, they all require the same thing: the desire to make something greater as a unit than as individuals.  For some people, relationships are awkward, for others – natural.  They can become ordinary and bland.  But in reality, relationships require work and they can always be better.  Starting, growing or strengthening a relationship begins with understanding ourselves, each other and how we each fit into the equation of the relationship.  This Small Group seeks to focus on knowing yourself so that your relationships are strengthened and you learn how to be an asset in each relationship you have.

Smaller groups for discipleship create environments for God to break in and cause ENCOUNTER – encounter with God and encounter with God’s people. Those smaller groups for discipleship look different depending on the group – Sunday School, Bible Studies and Small Groups are all examples of smaller groups for discipleship. The vision for Small Groups is to Connect People, Grow in Faith and Serve in Love. If you are not connected in a smaller group for discipleship, or if you are not sure what group would be a good fit for you, or if you want more clarity or a personalized plan for your discipleship, contact Robin Payne at 770-843-3466 or RobinP@douglasvilleFUMC.org and she will help you take the next step toward Christ. Connections are life-giving and we want you to be able to connect and grow.
