The vision of our Adult Discipleship Classes is to apply Christ's Lordship in every area of life. Classes are organized by age/stage, but all are welcome to attend any class! Click the link below for the full class listing and descriptions.
Courageous, biblically-based relationships empowered by grace that lead to transformational intimacy. This is the goal for community at OMPC, and Life Groups are the primary avenue to experience this type of surprising community. Many groups meet on Sunday evenings during The R.O.C.K. (our Sunday evening kids discipleship program!), but other groups meet at varying times during the week. The R.O.C.K. and Life Groups will launch for the Fall on August 18.
Contact Chad Walker to get plugged into a group that's a fit for you!

BATTLE FOR THE HEART
The Battle for the Heart process is different than most discipleship programs in that it’s not about giving you a formula to change what you’ve been doing (or not doing). The Battle is about discovering who you were created to be, as a man or a woman, in God’s Larger Story.
FORERUNNERS: MATURING MEMBERS OF OMPC
OMPC longs to be a place for people to connect, regardless of your age and stage. This includes our maturing adults! Join us Sunday mornings at 9:30 am for Adult Discipleship Classes -- the Next Steps Class (50s & 60s), Tyndale Class (60s & up), and Intergenerational Class are all great places to connect.
Join us for our first Luncheon on August 21 at 12:00 pm in Room S-180. Come learn more about Forerunners, this new ministry for the maturing members of OMPC. Bring a dish to share!
October 14 - 16, St Mary's Retreat Center, Sewanee, TN. Get away from the noise, busyness and pressures of life, and enjoy an extended time of silent reflection with the Father at our Silent Retreat.

2019 RETREAT DETAILS
Battle for the Men's Heart: August 8 - 11, 2019
Battle for the Women's Heart: August 22 - 25. 2019
Room S-185, Dylan Evans. “Rites of Passage for 20s” A rite of passage is an important act or event that marks a passage from one stage of life to another. Your 20s are full of them, so explore them together seeing how God uses these for our good and his glory.
YOUNG PROFESSIONALS 30s
Late 20s to 30s, Room S-180, Matt Redmond, “The King and the Kingdom: A Study of the Gospel According to Matthew.” Dive into the life and words of King Jesus himself as we walk through the Gospel according to Matthew.
Parents of Jr. and Sr. High Youth, Room C-246, Mark Long.
“The Discipleship Playbook.” In this study, we will learn what it means to live as a true disciple of Jesus Christ. We will discover that disciples live by faith, are serious students of God’s Word, and live for something greater than themselves. ParentU hopes to provide a community for parents and offer a collection of grace-driven lessons designed to encourage and challenge parents of JrHi and SrHi students.
Late 40s to 50s. Room C-245, Tom Patton. “Gospel Life in the Millenium.” The books of I & II Thessalonians are very applicable studies for the church today. Christians in Thessalonica were dealing with how to live out their Christian life and values in the midst of a very secular and hostile environment. We will consider Paul’s timeless instructions and how we might live faithfully in our post-modern world.
60s and up. Room C-240, Hugh Davis. “Attributes of God.” This class is designed to show us the wonder, glory and the joy of knowing God better and better. It is based on master Christian classics such as Knowing God by J.I. Packer.
Room C-243, Bobby Gardner. “Genesis” A verse-by-verse exposition of the first book of the Bible. Discover how it all began and why that makes a difference for us now. See God’s covenantal plan in action and how that impacts us still today.
Room C-242, Elders. Our class for visitors and newcomers who want to know more about our church and our denomination.
