We practice personal disciplines such as prayer, biblical study, and fasting. Maintaining personal disciplines is much like cultivating Christ’s kingdom. We want to be more like Jesus. We believe that it is God who heals, matures, and changes us to be more like him. What we do in personal disciplines works to posture us to receive the work of God in our lives.
We set aside times in our schedule to focus on developing in our personal disciplines. This year our first growth focus will take place on Wednesday evenings, Nov. 29, Dec. 6, and Dec. 13. Prof. Mary Schmitt, Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies at Northwest Nazarene University will be facilitating gatherings designed to deepen our reading of the Bible.
