REVISITING the WEEKEND

My 1st time with this meme hosted by Gattina helping us remember what our weekends brought into our lives.
Saturday was a day of cooking, laundry, knitting and editing photos...
I can't seem to get a good moon shot with my camera for nothing. 
I've been trying all kinds of settings
will have to do more internet browsing on using my manual settings, for sure.























Sunday was a day of 'special' worship...
1) celebrating our 20th year of providing DISCIPLE Bible Study for our congregation and visitors
  • grew with youth class
  • grew to mentor other local churches
  • grew to mentor Reynoso, Mexico community
  • grew to provide facilitator training for other churches
    Lunch with 120 facilitators, administrators, classmates made for a great day of remembrance, thankfulness and eagerness for the next 20 years of God's blessings.

    Our first Disciple director...we call her Mama Disciple














Disciple History

In March 1986...eighteen gathered in Flower Mound, TX, ... a dream of developing a Bible study for training Christian Disciples... DISCIPLE: BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY.

In July of 1989,..lives were being changed and churches renewed. A group gathered once again ... DISCIPLE: INTO THE WORD INTO THE WORLD with the challenge of going deeper into the Word and out into the world.

Another three years later...in December of 1992...Experience confirmed direction and congregations were ready to be confronted by the hard words of the prophets. The result - DISCIPLE: REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE.

Finally, in 2001, the fourth and final study of the original DISCIPLE program was published. From Creation to the New Jerusalem – that was the promise and the vision. DISCIPLE: UNDER THE TREE OF LIFE was published and groups would study The Writings and Revelation. The journey was long and in-depth and would take congregations through the Bible twice.


2) celebrating those graduating from high school and/or college...several of these students were in small group my last year in youth counseling.  They've grown and I'm eager to see what their paths will be soon. 
Great memories...bright futures.

John 8:31
"If you continue in my word, then you are truly Disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

Blessings,

I love the name "Mama Disciple".

I also love the legacy overview you've provided here. What a demonostrable path of "growing"!
