New Once-A-Month Series Called Replicate Disciples

Replicate Disciples Graphics.jpg

Common Ground will launch the second "once-a-month" series called Replicate Disciples this Sunday, September 23 at 3:00 pm. Tim Robnett is a gifted evangelist who trains evangelists all over the world. Replicate Disciples will cover two basic principles: how to follow Jesus Christ and how to invite others to follow Jesus. We are very honored to have Tim lead us in this initiative at CG!

In addition, Tim will lead a complimentary session of training and application immediately following each sermon during the series. So this Sunday after worship, grab some refreshments in the Fireside Room and head over to Room 301 at 4:45 pm.

Take this new journey with us as we re-engage the mission of Christ through the Word of God.
