"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" - Lao Tzu
If you're newer with us, or you've been here for a while and would like to take some steps to further your relationship with Jesus, the church, discover your gifts, or plug into ministry, check out our Thrive Track program. Next Steps classes are offered on Sundays throughout the year and here are the steps:
Beliefs and belonging
In Step 1 we'll help guide you through the essential steps that every believer needs to take to become a fully-devoted follower of Jesus. We'll also discuss the basics of our faith including an introduction to the United Methodist Church and its origins and influence from John Wesley. We'll finish by discussing the vision and mission of Hueytown First and you'll be given the opportunity to become a partner in ministry with us if you'd wish.
Your gifts for ministry
In Step 2 we'll help you discover how God has uniquely created you for a life of ministry. We'll guide you through our SHAPE Assessment to help you discover your Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, and Experiences and how they shape you for ministry. You'll then have an opportunity to join a ministry team and get plugged into the life of our local church.
