The Disciple Life: Following Jesus for the sake of the world
At PLCC, we “grow disciples of Christ.” And guess what… A disciple is someone who “loves God and loves people.” Do you see a circle here? But disciple-making has to be intentional and include a specific plan to give hands and feet to our mission of “loving God and loving people.” This Jesus-way of life is how we all grow as disciples (John 15:9-10).
What does the Disciple Life Look Like?
- Desiring to become more like Christ
- Committing to following Jesus’ commands
- Growing in serving God and others, becoming less consumeristic
- Gracing the failures of others and themselves
- Living out their faith in the world
- Embodying a love that is growing deeper and broader
…This is the disciple life.

Leader: Ross Morley
Approx 2 Wednesdays per month, 7-8:30pm by Zoom. The Gospel of Luke
We are a group of families with mostly high school & college age children, and a few younger. Our purpose is deeper connection and spiritual growth within the larger family of PLCC, and mutual support in the challenges of parenting and life in general. We are back to zooming since Delta, and have moved from Friday to Wednesday as peoples' changing schedules have made that more convenient. While the adults do our study and pray together, there is an on-line game going on the kids who want to participate.
The group is always open to new people. It is a great way to build deep connections and lasting friendships within the church. We have done a variety of topics ranging from Bible book studies through DVD series on various topics - the study is not the main point, but provides a focus to help us grow and bond spiritually. Sometimes we skip the study and just chat.
We are beginning a study in the Gospel of Luke using a study guide by N.T, Wright. If you would like to join us, please email us via the Contact link and we'll give you details for our next meeting. We welcome you to just come and try us out with no commitment.
