It’s NOT automatic: In other words, you can be a Christian and never grow spiritually. It is a process: Prov. 8:5 (GN) says that we “…Learn to be mature.” It takes discipline: 1Tim. 4:7b (Ph) “Take the time and the trouble to keep yourself spiritually fit.” In order to help you with spiritual maturity, we have made it a part of the Dogwood Journey. This Journey is a road-map for fully-developing followers of Christ. You have already taken the first 2 steps at some point in your journey… becoming a follower of Jesus and completing the Dogwood membership class (now called The Belong Class).We’ve got to exercise; to develop some basic habits and be disciplined to practice them. There are three basic habits that help us grow. As we focus on these habits, our GROW class will equip you with the skills you need and provide the tools that are helpful in continuing those three habits.
