WHAT IS M28 DISCIPLESHIP?

M28 (standing for Matthew 28:19-20) is a discipleship ministry of Grace Church designed to equip Christians to love Jesus, and to love Others, in all of life (Matt. 22:37-38). We will learn to be informed worshipers of Christ, who are empowered by Him, as we believe and follow His Word, and as we take the Gospel to all who do not yet know Him (Gal. 2:20).

Current Classes - Sundays at 8:45 am

  • Living the Word = “Authentic”

    Authentic faith, authentic hope, authentic love… But also, authentic life, power, service, wisdom, and more. As Paul instructed the Corinthian church through his letters, he taught about that which is truly AUTHENTIC. Come study the letters of Paul to the Corinthians with us as we seek to better understand how to live an authentic Christian life.

  • ecclesiastes, the way of wisdom

    Many people are shaken by life’s events, looking to the world for fulfillment, and thinking that planet earth is designed to meet every felt need. Many think that the government, the workplace, and even the church have failed them in their pursuit of happiness. In traveling the path of this life, many say, as the Preacher in the book of Ecclesiastes does: “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” Is this really all there is?

    As we study the book of Ecclesiastes, we will discover how to answer some of life’s hardest questions:
    • How do I handle depression, discouragement and anxiety?
    • Is God with me in the hardest times?
    • How do I know that life is really more than it seems?
    • Where is Jesus when I need Him most?
    • How can I find wisdom to get through every day?
    • Why am I even here?    
    Come find out what the Preacher has to say as he explains that true wisdom leads us to the One who is the Way of Wisdom, Jesus Christ!


    Taught by Kevin Shea in the Fireside Room beginning on February 17th through March.
