Disciples Path - Journey Room (204)

Prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness...this is what we commit to when we become members of the United Methodist Church. A Disciple's Path helps you develop spiritual practices, discover your unique gifts, and engage in ministry that brings transformation to your own life and to the lives of others and the world. This six-week study is perfect for new-member groups, but also works well in small groups of long-time members. Questions? Email Sarah Aplin at
