Sign up here for spiritual disciplines reminders via text. One to three times a week you will receive a text message with a prompt to engage in a simple spiritual discipline like pray, read, or do something to connect with God and focus on your spiritual being and relationships.
Our spiritual life can be an awesome adventure as we grow deeper in our relationship with God and one another!
As Christians, we base much of our spiritual expectations and disciplines on examples found in the Bible and church.
As Methodists, we believe that God’s grace is unearned and that we were not to be idle waiting to experience grace, but we are to engage in the world in a way that we participate and see the unfolding of God’s grace. This is sometimes referred to as the “means of grace.” These are ways God works invisibly in disciples, hastening, strengthening; and confirming faith so that God’s grace permeates disciples. As we look at the means of grace today, they can be divided into works of piety and the works of mercy.
Works of Piety
Reading, meditating and studying the scriptures, prayer, fasting, regularly attending worship, healthy living, and sharing our faith with others, regularly share in the sacraments, Christian conferencing (accountability to one another), and Bible study
Works of Mercy
Doing good works, visiting the sick, visiting those in prison, feeding the hungry, and giving generously to the needs of others, seeking justice, ending oppression and discrimination, and addressing the needs of the poor
Being disciples, growing your congregations, and transforming the world is part of a spiritual adventure that is empowered and guided by the Holy Spirit as we engage in the means of grace.
