Discipleship Pathway


We are so glad you are interested in taking the next step at Springfield First! We have put together a process to help all of us move forward in our spiritual journey. We call this the "Discipleship Pathway." See below to learn more.


Starting Point

New to Springfield First?

Come and meet the pastors in a small group setting. We want to get to know you too! Learn more about this community of faith, our vision, mission, and opportunities to get more out of your experience here. Connect with others who are new, take a tour, and have a few laughs.

If you are interested in attending the next Starting Point, contact our Director of Connections, Sharon Sweeney.


G6 Class

Want to know more about this faith family? Want to meet new friends? Or maybe you just want to get to know the pastors a little better? The G6 Class will fulfill all of the above and more!

The 6-week G6 Class will detail six characteristics of a deeply devoted disciple of Jesus Christ, all beginning with the letter “G.”

  • Glory – worshiping God
  • Grace – imparting Christ’s love
  • Growth – celebrating spiritual disciplines
  • Group – doing life together
  • Giftedness – serving others
  • Generosity – sharing compassionately

This class will also help you get engaged in the life of this church community.

The next G6 Class will take place in January 2022 (dates TBD).

The G6 Class is a prerequisite for becoming a New Member at Springfield First.

For more information, email our Director of Connections, Sharon Sweeney, or call her at 217-793-9760 x102.
