Sunday Night:  Disciples Make Disciples

The mission and purpose of the Church is to evangelize, and Jesus' final instruction to his followers was to "Go and make disciples..."  If we are going to live out our mission as baptized followers of Jesus, we must first be disciples ourselves.  This first night of the mission focused on what it means to be a disciple, helped us recognize the movements of our own journeys of discipleship, and provided an opportunity to reflect on and share a few of those moments with others.
