Discipleship Classes

IDC provides ongoing discipleship classes on Sunday evenings from 4-5:15 pm. These classes are open to anyone and will consist of Bible study and discussion of various discipleship issues in the Christian life. Discipleship Classes do not meet on weeks we have members’ meetings (usually the first Sunday of each month).

Women

IDC Women’s Discipleship desires to see lives changed by the gospel through equipping women to grow into faithful believers and disciple-makers within the context of the local church.

Guiding Principles

  • Biblical literacy and spiritual vitality
    • We equip women to grow in their relationship with the Lord through study of the Scriptures and commitment to gospel-saturated spiritual disciplines.
  • Biblical community
    • We provide opportunities to foster gospel relationships among the women in our church, including Titus 2 discipling relationships.
  • Leadership development
    • We encourage women to grow in discernment, discipleship, and leadership.

Bible Studies & Book Clubs

Women’s Bible studies and book clubs are offered in the spring and fall: from March through May, and from September through November. Book clubs and Bible studies meet at a variety of times and locations: at Imago Dei as well as in homes, in the mornings and evenings. A group for Spanish speakers is also offered. Childcare is provided for groups meeting at the IDC building.

The Hispanic ministry aims to serve the Spanish-speaking community at Imago Dei Church. As a ministry within the local church, we operate in harmony with the larger vision of IDC. Live Spanish translation is available during the 9:00 am service on Sundays, we meet monthly at Hispanic Initiative gatherings for a time of fellowship, musical worship, and teaching from the Bible, and also offer various discipleship opportunities throughout the year. Our Hispanic Initiative gatherings are typically at 6:30 pm on the last Saturday of each month at the IDC building. View the church calendar for specific dates.
