know and be known. serve and be served. love and be loved.
Life groups are the heartbeat of our ministry. We take seriously the mandate to make disciples. What is a disciple? A disciple is a learner. Learning requires humility. At Ascend we have discovered that growth in Jesus requires us to transparent and vulnerable. This is nearly impossible without creating a culture of honor and respect where people feel safe and heard. Mark 14:3 says, "He (Jesus) appointed twelve that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach." Our life groups generally consist of eight to twelve people. We gather together in homes and dive into the Bible and pray for each other. If you would like to join a group click the link below and we will shoot you an email with the options available.
Be devoted to tenderly loving your fellow believers as members of one family. Try to outdo yourselves in respect and honor of one another. Be enthusiastic to serve the Lord, keeping your passion toward him boiling hot! Radiate with the glow of the Holy Spirit and let him fill you with excitement as you serve him. Let this hope burst forth within you, releasing a continual joy. Don’t give up in a time of trouble, but commune with God at all times. Take a constant interest in the needs of God’s beloved people and respond by helping them. And eagerly welcome people as guests into your home.
