Emmaus Stage 3: Growth: Knowing God
Emmaus: The Way of Faith is a course designed to welcome people into the Christian faith and the life of the Church. It aims to involve the whole Church in evangelism, the nurture of new believers and ongoing Christian discipleship. Knowing God is one section of this material. Designed to deepen new Christians' understanding of the basics of Christian doctrine it addresses questions like: How does God affect the whole of my life? What significance does the story of Jesus Christ have for my life? What part should the Holy Spirit play in my life? It examines these issues through four short courses: 1. Living the Gospel (4 sessions) 2. Knowing the Father (4 sessions) 3. Knowing Jesus (4 sessions) 4. Come, Holy Spirit (4 sessions) Knowing God is ideal as a follow on from: an enquirers' group; a Nurture or Alpha Group; a new Christians' group; a confirmation class; a refresher course for established Christians. Each session has detailed leaders' notes and fully downloadable (or photocopiable) handouts on the accompanying CD-ROM.
