WHAT'S GOING ON AT ARLINGTON PRESBYTERIAN !
As we move forward with our vision, here are some thoughts from our pastor...

There are two changes that are most notable for me - the move from an attractional to missional model
of ministry and the intentionality of nurturing spiritual growth, of creating disciples." To read more, click on
What Does It Mean to be a Disciple of Jesus?
This fall, during worship and congregational gatherings, we will examine what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. What does it mean to follow Jesus? What does it mean to live our lives patterned after His? How does being a member of a church guide and inform our discipleship? Using Scripture and the marks of membership from the Book of Order, we will reflect on our own sense of discipleship and how we can grow in our practice of being a disciple of Jesus.
