THE DISCIPLESHIP PATHWAY

Our desire at LCF is to develop fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. But where do you start? What’s the process? With so many options it can be confusing so we’ve created the Discipleship Pathway, a two year process to help you CONNECT, GROW and BUILD your life as a follower of Jesus Christ! Here’s the Pathway: 

DISCOVERY – SUNDAYS @ 10:45 AM – ROOM #411

The first stop on The Pathway is Discovery. In this class you will discover WHO we are at LCF, WHAT we believe, and HOW we operate. We cover our mission, purpose, vision, and core values, along with information on the many ministries we offer and how your family can get involved!  

Pastor Paul Vistine: 575-524-0654 Ext. 122 / Paul@lascrucesfirst.org 

FOUNDATIONS – SUNDAYS @ 9:00 AM – ROOM #405

Salvation is the most important decision you will ever make and the beginning of a lifetime of knowing the God who created you and has good plans for your life. The best thing you can do to grow is your relationship with Jesus is to learn about Him! Foundations will give you just that, a firm foundation in what it means to be a Christian!

 THE WAY OF THE MASTER – SUNDAYS @ 9:00 AM – ROOM #407

150,000 people die every 24 hours, most without knowing Christ as their savior. We are deeply concerned that so few Christians (5% or less) ever reach out to the lost. One of the reasons is that many don’t feel equipped. This class is designed to teach you how to share the gospel simply, effectively, boldly and biblically – the way Jesus did!

40 DAYS IN THE WORD – WEDNESDAYS @ 7:00 PM – ROOM #407

Whether you are a seasoned Bible reader or barely understand a word you read, 40 Days in the Word will leave you with a greater appreciation for the word of God, a deeper understanding of its ability to change your life, and a stronger desire to know God’s word more!

LIFE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT! – SUNDAYS @ 10:45 AM

What do you want from life? Success? Peace? Fulfillment? God wants the same thing for you and in His wisdom He outlined a simple, straightforward plan for you to follow that will lead to lasting success in every area of life. You’ve been given much, manage it well!
