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

These groups will meet on Wednesday Nights from 6:30 - 7:45 . See below for group description and curriculum. 

The Gospel of Mark - Growth Class with Pastor Jeremy

Wednesday Nights from 6:30  - 7:45 pm starting January 26th

If you ever wanted a gospel that gets right to the point, look no further than the Gospel of Mark. Written in the mid-to-late 60’s AD, the Gospel of Mark doesn’t include details about Jesus’ life like the Christmas story, his genealogy, or lengthy teachings like the Sermon on the Mount. The reason why is because Mark has one goal: To get the reader to the good news of Easter Sunday as quickly as possible.
Starting Wednesday, January 26th, join Pastor Jeremy for an in-depth study of one of the most unique books in the entire Bible: The Gospel of Mark. This class will meet in person in the Worship Center on Wednesdays starting at 6:30 pm. It’ll also be livestreamed on Facebook Live for those who are unable to attend in person.
