A practical guide to help you become more like Jesus.
Click here on how best to use this Discipleship Guide.
Our 30 day Transit Devotional is all about moving closer to God and being transformed by the journey. We talk about how to read your Bible, how to pray, and how to deepen your relationship with God.
The Red Rocks Discipleship Guide is designed to equip our church for the transformational journey of following Jesus. Developing a deeper relationship with God is a lifelong process. Our hope is that as you engage with this guide, you will know God in new ways, which will equip you to live on purpose as you change the world around you. We recognize not every resource or practice will be the perfect fit and that’s okay. Use what is helpful to draw you into a deeper relationship with Jesus.

The Kingdom of God
God is a God of generations. He refers to himself throughout the Old Testament as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In Deuteronomy, he commands mothers and fathers to teach the ways of God to their children and for children to honor their father and mother. The Church also is a family. Family is the greatest blessing we can experience but it can also be one of the most difficult. God has given great instruction on how to have a strong, thriving family that abounds with blessing through our diversity.

God intentionally created rhythms in the world, distinguishing different seasons and times, from days to years. Discovering those rhythms and living in sync with them is key to our flourishing.

One of the aims of christian living is to become like Jesus in character and in deed. That is a high calling and can seem impossible. But everything Jesus asked us to do is possible if we practice. Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, “everyone who hears these words of mine and practices them, will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. Paul also wrote we should “train ourselves for godliness.” So we practice and we train, with Jesus, and in community, beginning where we are and, by His grace, becoming more like Jesus day by day.
Go Change the World
Changing the world seems like a daunting task. It’s too big and others can do it. But what if the most effective way to change the world was to make dinner? Throughout the Gospels, Jesus goes to dinner over and over again with anyone who will invite him. It was during those dinners that many people got to see what Jesus was like. The same is true for us: around the dinner table, our neighbors get to see what Jesus is really like.
Be a Blessing
Love your neighbor
