Get Connected

Our faith journey was never meant to be taken alone. Christianity was designed to be lived and experienced with others on the journey in community. That’s why here at Ashworth, one of our Core Values is Connection. We truly believe we are better together. Practically, that means we value spending time together in our various ministries and outside the church in deep friendships.  Take a peek at some of our great ministries below which can help you connect with others.

Discipleship Group meeting in a coffee shop

Discipleship Groups

Jesus told his disciples that being his follower wasn’t going to be easy. He said it would be a challenge and would take commitment and hard work. After all, it required a completely different way of thinking, a different set of values, and a completely new attitude.  He taught that his disciples should love God with all their heart, mind, soul, and strength, and that they should put everybody else before themselves. Over 2,000 years later, this challenge for Jesus’…
