We believe that we grow best when we grow together! Discipleship cannot happen solely during a Sunday morning worship service. Therefore, we have many options for adult discipleship. Each of the ministries outlined below  is designed to further our vision of building disciples who mature.

“Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.” 1THESSALONIANS 5:11


Adult Sunday School is a way for adults to grow stronger in God's Word, encourage one another, and become better equipped to serve and engage the community with the Gospel. We are currently going through the book "Confronting Christianity" by Rebecca McLaughlin.

"Channeling state-of-the-art research, personal stories, and careful biblical study, Confronting Christianity explores 12 questions that keep many of us from considering faith in Christ. Look more closely, McLaughlin argues, and the reality of suffering, the complexity of sexuality, the desire for diversity, the success of science, and other seeming roadblocks to faith become signposts. Jesus becomes not a relic from the ancient world, but our modern world’s best hope."


Small Groups are a foundational element of the discipleship process at SEFC. They meet weekly or biweekly in homes almost any night of the week and consist of 8-12 adults. Bible study, prayer, and fellowship are the main component of these groups. Small groups will generally choose their own curriculum.

To join a small group contact Pastor Nick.


Discipleship Groups may be one of the most valuable discipleship tools we offer. Each gender specific group meets once a month for a single 3-hour gathering. At the monthly meeting you will discuss the assigned book, share memorized scripture, pray with and for one another, and review what God has been teaching you in your personal walk with Christ. 


SEFC has several specific ministry options that are uniquely geared to the spiritual needs of each gender. These events can be found monthly on our calendar and events page or in our bulletin each week. Ultimately, both ministries seek to cultivate the Spiritual growth of SEFC by providing mentoring and accountability relationships to strengthen one another’s walk with Christ.
