We exist to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered community, gospel-centered service, and gospel-centered multiplication. This is our mission and process for discipleship. Out of this, gospel-centered community is the context for discipleship, the people you experience Christ with. At Indian Springs, we believe this is done best through our LifeGroups and Discipleship Small Groups.
We pursue and live out gospel-centered community through LifeGroups. Made up of men and women from all generations of life, these groups meet every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. for fellowship, care, prayer, accountability, sharing stories and studying God’s Word. They’re a place where we work to consider each other over ourselves. No group is perfect, and no two groups are exactly the same. We don’t expect them to be. Because people are messy, groups are messy.
We pursue and live out gospel-centered community through Discipleship Small Groups. These groups give men and women a place to grow in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We meet every Wednesday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., here on the church campus. There are also discipleship opportunities available for children of all ages. Discipleship Small Groups are focused on equipping men and women with the tools and practical disciplines needed to grow into disciple-making disciples of Christ.
The Kids at the Springs Ministries focuses on children from preschool to 6th Grade. Every aspect of the Kids at the Springs Ministries has the same mission: to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered community, gospel-centered service and gospel-centered multiplication. Because we believe that Scripture is clear that parents are the primary disciple-makers in the lives of their children, our hope is to partner with parents in their pursuit of this mission, coming alongside them in the discipleship process. We do this in many ways like our annual Family Summit events and parenting-focused discipleship groups as well as personal relationships between parents and the leadership staff and volunteers of Kids at the Springs. These opportunities are valuable in equipping parents to establish a strong, gospel-centered foundation for their children.
God calls the family to play a vital role in discipling the next generation. How this is accomplished varies from family to family and is as unique as the DNA of each home. Family discipleship isn’t one-size-fits-all, and it isn’t easy—even the most intentional of Christian parents may find themselves at a loss as to how to begin. We want to come alongside parents to help them craft their own approach to family discipleship. Though each family is unique, we believe that vibrant family discipleship can take shape through family worship and a framework of time, moments and milestones.
Part of being a gospel-centered Young Adult ministry is creating opportunities for them to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. Whether we are assisting a neighbor with yardwork or going on short-term mission trips to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those outside of our community, we want young adults to have the opportunity to not just be a disciple but to make disciples of those God places in their path.
Though much of median adult life may have become significantly more stabilized compared to the life experiences of the young adults, there is always a need within the life of the follower of Christ to not just become more thoroughly informed, but we also desire to continue being transformed by the truth of the Gospel. Our ministry to median adults gives them the opportunity to be transformed as well as be used by God to bring transformation to those within their circles of influence.
As grandparents, and in some cases, great grandparents, our Senior Adult ministry is actively pursuing opportunities to pour into the lives of the younger generations around them. Whether it rocking infants while parents worship or being a prayer warrior for a student or filling a shoebox for an unknown recipient somewhere on the other side of the world, our Senior Adults are still actively living out their faith and making a difference in the life and ministry of the Gospel here at Indian Springs.
