Do you want to grow in your faith?
Do you want to get to know others in a deeper way?
Then Growth Groups are for you!
What are Growth Groups?
The 2017 Fall Growth Groups are small gatherings of people who will meet weekly for seven weeks. They will begin the week of October 1 and continue through the week of November 12.
Why should I join a Growth Group?
You will get so much out of it! You will grow in your faith by studying the Bible with others. And you will grow closer to other people. You will have a place to belong. You will be with people who will come to care about you and the joys and struggles of your life.
Will I have to buy any resources?
The Growth Groups will use materials prepared in house, so there will be no cost to you. You may wish to enjoy a beverage or food at your gathering location, but you will not have to do so.
When will they meet?
Growth Groups will meet weekly for eight weeks. Check the schedule for various days and times.
Where will Growth Groups meet?
Growth groups will meet at various locations that you probably already frequent. See the signup form for the dates, time, and location that work best for you.
How much preparation will I have to do between gatherings?
While you will have things to read and reflect on between gatherings, the time required will be suitable to all busy-ness schedules. And if you aren’t able to prepare beforehand, you will still be able to keep up with the conversations during that week’s gathering.
What other expectations will I need to meet?
The expectations are fairly simple. Commit to show up each time your group gathers during the eight weeks. (Obviously, there may be times when your attendance is not possible. Grace will abound!) Be open to building relationships with the others in your group by sharing your life with them. Honor the things shared by others. Contribute to the conversations as only your voice can.
