Spiritual disciplines are provided for our good, not for our bondage. They are privileges to be used, not duties to be performed.
Our DBA Disciple Making through Sunday School conference will be Thursday, April 30th beginning at 6:30 at Stuckey Baptist in Wheeler County. This conference is designed to help Bible Study/Sunday School leaders and workers learn creative ways to lead classes to become true disciple-making disciples. The first hour will cover ways to be a disciple making teacher/worker and the last hour will be a time of idea brainstorming which will give each participant new ideas in the areas of reaching people for Christ and then how to mature them in the faith. Also, there will be a drawing for a free (brand new) Kindle Fire HD6 tablet but you must be present to win and must be on time.
