But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine…… Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. Titus 2:1, 3-5
Titus 2 is a gospel-centered discipleship ministry that equips women, older and younger, to glorify God as they learn to think biblically about their lives, roles, relationships, and womanhood. Groups will meet monthly beginning in January and finishing up in December. Please pray about registering to participate in this ministry.
Please note, the Titus 2 leaders will not be disclosed until the kickoff. Titus 2 is not a personality-driven ministry. We are sisters in Christ and we hope you will take this opportunity to grow in your relationships within our body.
