Discipleship

A disciple is a follower—one who is learning from another. That's what Jesus meant when he told His church to go and "make disciples of all nations." He was calling us to be not just believers in Him, but also lifelong followers of Him. That's what we're striving to be at Third Avenue. We want to learn from Jesus, follow Him, and therefore become more like Him.

HOME GROUPS

One of the main ways we seek to encourage one another in our discipleship to Jesus is by meeting together in Home Groups. Every other week, small groups of Third Avenue members meet in each others' homes for a time of prayer, fellowship, and good conversations about how the prior Sunday's sermon applies in particular ways to our lives. Second only to our Sunday morning and Sunday evening services, home groups are the most important way we fellowship together and encourage each other as Christians.

MEN'S AND WOMEN'S GROUPS

Beyond those bi-weekly meetings, Home Groups gather together for service projects and other times of fellowship, and some of them also meet together in Men's Groups and Women's Groups. Reading books together, studying the Bible, praying, and even sometimes just playing games, this is a great way to build friendships and spur one another on to follow Jesus.

ONE-ON-ONE DISCIPLESHIP

We want to be a church where our members do not simply show up on Sunday mornings and disappear for a week. Rather, we want to be passionate and deliberate about our discipleship to Jesus, and we believe that is accomplished through Christians living life together. On any given day, all over the city of Louisville, members of Third Avenue can be found meeting together over lunch or coffee or a walk through the park—praying, talking, reading, and encouraging one another in the faith. Whether you are a working professional, college or seminary student, or a stay-at-home mom, our hope is that you will build deep and edifying relationships with other Christians at Third Avenue.
