Growth Groups

GROW in your relationship with God and others

Growing as a disciple of Jesus is a lifelong journey of transformation by the grace of God. We want to help you grow in your relationship and love with God, other Christians, and your neighbors. And we believe that the best way to grow as a disciple is alongside others.

Our Adult Growth Groups

 Wednesday Night Grow

Our Wednesday Night Grow Groups run from 6:30 pm  - 7:45  pm
Please see details below!

Wednesday Night Grow Groups Resume August 24th! 
  • Life is Hard, God is Great: A Study on the Book of Psalms with Pastor Wendy | Class Meets in the Worship Center | October 12th - November 9th | No Registration Required. |  The book of Psalms is a collection of hymns, poems, and prayers that were written to be used in worship. They reflect the goodness of God and teach us how to honor, worship, and praise God. In addition, the Psalms remind us that we can experience God's goodness, faithfulness, love, strength, and comfort. They are honest, real, and raw and remind us of what it means to be human. Although the words are ancient, they are still relevant in our lives now to help us know and experience the God who is beside, before, all around, above, and among us!
  • Women's Study: Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World | Class Meets in Room 339 (Upstairs) | August 24th - December 7th |  Leaders: Daphne Hyatt, Jan Watkins, and Traci Goodbar | Cost: $11 for the book | Registration Required. | The life of women today isn’t really all that different from that of Mary and Martha in the new Testament. Like Mary, you long to sit at the Lord’s feet… but the daily demands of a busy world just won’t leave you alone. Like Martha, you love Jesus and really want to serve him… yet you struggle with weariness, resentment, and feelings of inadequacy.  Join us as we discover how each of us can draw closer to the Lord, deepening our devotion, strengthening our service, and doing both with less stress and greater joy.  Click here to register.
  • Disciple Fast Track: Luke and Acts with Pastor Jason | Class Meets in Room 351 (Upstairs) | August 24th - December 7th | Cost: $14 for the book | Registration Required. | Join us as we take an in-depth look at the Books of Luke and Acts through the familiar Disciple Bible Study format. Disciple Fast Track is ideal for busy people who want to fit an in-depth Bible study into their schedule, grow in their knowledge of Scripture, and take a disciplined look at scripture. The study retains the familiar Disciple format with its theme word, theme verse, daily and weekly assignments, and prayer. Together, we will deepen our understanding of Scripture and make connections between what you already know and what there is to discover. Click here to register.
