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 of others.

LifeGroups help people connect relationally and grow spiritually through intentional times of fellowship, study, and support together. Groups typically meet in people’s homes for an hour and a half to two hours at least every other week.  
Each LifeGroup is unique, but during gatherings groups typically:
  • Fellowship: Meet regularly and share what’s going on in one another’s lives
  • Grow: Discuss the Bible or book that the group decides on
  • Support: Pray for one another, their families, and the community
  • Serve: Actively seek out ways to serve God and others in the community together
