Adult Discipleship – Intentionally Growing in Faith

At Weddington Church, we value discipleship and the importance of relationships and authentic community. We believe that Christian discipleship happens best when we are connected with others through small group opportunities where we can encourage, care and support one another, and be intentional as we seek to grow in life and faith. We also recognize that everyone has their own starting point and pace, and that there are different seasons in life and faith. For that reason, you will find a variety of groups to help you intentionally grow in faith and find ways to connect with others through friendship, fellowship, special events, and serving opportunities.

Advent 2021

The Advent season is a time we remember and reflect on God’s greatest gift, Jesus Christ. For many, it can be a challenge to remain focused on God when our culture invites us to focus on so many other things. This Advent, we encourage you to set aside time to be still and reflect on God’s amazing story with fresh eyes and a renewed heart.

2021 Advent e-Devotional:  The Gospel of Advent

During the four weeks of Advent, this e-devotional series will guide us through the core Gospel threads woven within the observance of Advent, and help us to ready our hearts as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. This resource includes devotional readings and reflection questions written by Christianity Today contributors and editors (shared with permission). Those who sign up will receive a daily devotional delivered to your email box beginning November 28. Click here to sign up to receive this 2021 Advent e-Devotional.

Hope is Alive:  A Personal Advent Devotional Study 

The weeks leading up to Christmas are busy and often full of activity and long lists of things to do. It can be difficult to find time to be still and focus spiritually. During the Advent season, this personal study will help you to focus on some of the foundational truths which our faith is build upon and be reminded of the who and why we celebrate this season. We have so much more to rejoice over than presents and festivities. We have a God who loves us so much that he came and joined us in our broken world. He is our constant reminder that hope is alive! This 4-week personal study includes a printed devotional booklet ($15). A suggested schedule is available, however you may adjust the schedule. The study can be done individually or with a friend, as a way of grounding ourselves in the reason for this beautiful season – Jesus. Click here to sign up to reserve a Hope is Alive devotional booklet and suggested schedule.
