One of the greatest ways to position ourselves for life with Jesus is to practice life lived the ways of Christ. At Ringgold UMC, we affirm three discipleship practices that were shared in community as significant enough to implement in our life shared together. Because they were so important, such regular parts of Jesus' life with God, they are worthy of our full consideration and participation. They are: Participating in community life regularly in worship. Sharing life in a small group that fosters both growth and accountability. And serving in some regular way that uses God given talents to bring about the kingdom of God. Practicing each of these do not make us disciples, yet they serve as guides, putting us squarely on the path to life lived as Jesus lived it..
