The mission statement of the Christian Discipleship Team is to engage and empower people through interactive classes and meaningful relationships and connections. Our goal continues to be to gain understanding of how we grow in our faith, recognize how God has opened our eyes to see things in a new way, and reflect on ways our hearts are being changed. We are committed to assisting the people of CPC with self-discovery, world awareness, and discipleship through educational opportunities and small groups. Each year we offer Bible and book studies, community events (such as a Kentucky Derby party, museum tours/outings, nature walks, etc.), Second Sunday programs, social justice activities/classes, and Lenten/Advent resources and events. As we continue in our discipleship journey together, we are excited to continue to learn from one another, grow in faith, and explore how to more faithfully, justly, and lovingly be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world!
At Christmas, God came into our ordinary world in the form of a child, and still today, God is at work through the ordinary stuff of life, if we train our eyes to see.
In this daily devotional for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, Jill J. Duffield draws readers’ attention to ten ordinary objects that appear in the biblical narratives of messianic prophesy and incarnation—objects we encounter in our own lives. Through objects such as gates, trees, cloth, light, and water, readers will find new meaning in the biblical account of Jesus’ coming. By connecting everyday objects with biblical texts, Advent in Plain Sight prompts readers to see the near kingdom of heaven on earth and ponder what that divine proximity enables and asks them to do and be. Each daily devotional features a Scripture reading, prayer, and reflection, reminding Christians that God still dwells among us, even in the most ordinary places.
