Discipleship U: Taking Steps Beyond Sunday Morning is an opportunity to learn about and practice Jesus’ command to His Church to both be disciples and make disciples.  Being a disciple of Christ means that we follow Him, that we are changed by Him, and that we are committed to His mission to save people from their sins. As disciples, we engage with head, heart, and hands in following Jesus both within and beyond our church walls to where we live and work and play.

At Nazareth, we desire for all people to make discipleship an ever-present part of their lives.  In order to help you along on your journey to live as a disciple of Jesus and to reach out as a disciple-maker in His name, we desire to provide a variety of discipleship-building tools including opportunities for Christian fellowship; invitations to serve others in Christ’s name within the church and to lead beyond our walls by serving outside of it, locally and all across the world; and diverse offerings of spiritual growth resources, educational ministry programs and Bible study groups.


Our prayer is that you will utilize these tools on your journey to know Christ, grow in Christ, and make Christ known.
