The home is the most mundane and yet the most strategic arena for discipleship – following Jesus together. Discipleship is not something that happens just at church services and small groups. It should happen in all of life and the home is the ideal place for it to begin. Discipleship in the home looks like husbands and wives discipling each other and parents discipling children. We want to equip you to redeem one of the most ordinary arenas in life: your home. We want to help husbands and wives see that marriage is more than friendship and romance; marriage is about making disciples. We want to help parents see that parenting is more than discipline and instruction; parenting is about making disciples. We want to see young married couples and young families redeem the mundane and pursue gospel-centered growth in their homes.
We know it can be easy to get lost in the mix at a large church. Sunday School makes the big, small. Getting involved with a Sunday School class is the best way to find community at Shades. While we have age distinctions with most classes, you are free to join the class in which you feel most comfortable.
We have several events that occur regularly throughout the year. Our hope is that these events supplement your daily and weekly routines of spiritual growth and discipleship. Click below for more information about our upcoming events.
We are here to help. We love resources and want to equip you to live faithfully in every area of your life. Maybe your marriage is in a difficult season or you just need help navigating some common struggles. Check out our recommended books, articles, and podcasts for more information.
