Discipleship

“Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Here at Santa Margarita Community Church, we believe that this is what it means to be a disciple – a “head” decision to follow Jesus, a “heart” transformation toward growth and maturity, and a “hands” involvement in service and outreach. We provide opportunities for all our congregants to be involved in spiritual mentorship, Biblical teaching, and mid-week fellowship groups.

The Table

The Table is our midweek all church gathering where we learn, train and practice becoming better at following Jesus Christ. Our desire is that this next session bears fruit in our entire congregation becoming a better family of worshipers as we gather again on Sunday morning. Wednesday nights, starting September 11, 2019. 5:45 p.m. in the SMCC Chapel.


Bible Study

Men's and women's bible studies meet weekly to dig deeply into the Word of God. We follow a "manuscript" style study, which teaches us to look closely at the text (Observe), ask questions about the text and as we find the answers, decide what the author was trying to communicate (Interpretation) and finally, consider how the text speaks to our beliefs and shapes lives. (Application)  These studies look at the passage that will be preached on Sunday, usually 1-3 weeks ahead of time.  Using a manuscript allows us to mark the text, helping us note repeated words, images and themes. This year we are studying Nehemiah.  Manuscripts are available at the church. Studies begin again the week of September 11, 2019. 

Men's group meets at The Chapel, Thursday 6 a.m.
Women's groups meet at the Chapel, Tuesday 6:30 p.m. or Thursday 9:30 a.m.


Sunday Education Hour

We hold Sunday School classes for all ages during the 8:45 a.m. service. Adult classes move between topics that address our head (what we believe), heart (helping to actually believe it) and our hands (learing how to act on what we believe). The aim of our adult education hour is to help you mature to become spiritual parents who will in turn raise up spiritual children.

Starting September 8 adults are studying "How People Change."

Youth, 6th through 12th grade, will be studying "Know Why you Believe."
