Discipleship is T.I.M.E.

Through the mundane moments of life, we often forget the need to disciple and be discipled by another brother or sister in Christ. As disciples of Christ, we must always aim to be faithful, accountable, and teachable. The Apostle Paul gave his young protege Titus instructions (Titus 2) for the older men of the church to invest in the younger men and

the older women to invest in the younger women.


This takes time, intentional time. We aim to make the most of every opportunity the Lord gives us. 

At Immanuel, we believe DISCIPLESHIP IS T.I.M.E.

Time to TEACH

Time to INVEST

Time to MENTOR

Time to EQUIP

Our T.I.M.E. D-Groups are intentional discipleship groups (Less than 5, male-to-male/female-to-female) created for accountability and growth toward maturity in Christ. 

Our T.I.M.E. D-Group Leaders are in Training for Fall and will commit to beginning their groups in January 2024.

If you are interested in being part of a T.I.M.E. D-Group, please get in touch with the church office.  

  • Teach

    Titus 2 speaks to the need to teach sound doctrine. "Teach what is good." Consistency matters, and we see consistent Truth when we look to God's Word. The Bible demands our attention, requires our acceptance, and demands our obedience. We cannot "get over" what God has done. May we continue to be people who delight in the Word of God and the God of the Word. 

  • invest

    Our prayers for people will prompt us to INVEST. If we are recipients of God's saving grace, we must also grow in the lifestyle made possible by grace. Investment is intentionally taking TIME with another and installing a signpost at the doorstep of another believer's heart that says, "Look to God!" Initiative. Intercession. Invitation. Investment.

  • mentor

    A.W. Tozer once said, "A True disciple does not consider Christianity a part-time commitment. He has become a Christian in ALL PARTS of his life. He has reached the point where there is no turning back." Mentoring is resolving to be responsible for demonstrating to another how you follow Christ so they can learn to follow Christ more closely. New birth to a new life leads to MENTORing others. 

  • Equip

    What are the tools in your toolbox? We each have specific ways that we disciple other believers in Christ. Equipping others is an invitation to give tools for maturing in Christ to learn, apply, and multiply on purpose. 'Your Word is a Lamp to my feet and a light for my path." (Psalm 119:105) We are called to share the tools available to know God in different seasons, grow in God, and EQUIP others to do the same.
