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 2018 Lenten Growth Groups are small gatherings of people who will meet weekly for six weeks. They will begin the week of February 11 and continue through the week of March 18.
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 Lenten Growth Groups will use a book by Winn Collier called Love Big, Be Well. Copies of the book and a reading schedule will be given out during your first group gathering. Cost of the book is approximately $12. (Here’s a sense of what Winn and the book are like.)
When will they meet?
Growth Groups will meet weekly for six weeks. Check the schedule for various days and times.
Where will Growth Groups meet?
Initially, Growth Groups will meet at the church. Once your group forms, the group may continue to meet at the church, or select another location that work best for you.
How much preparation will I have to do between gatherings?
Love Big, Be Well is suitable to all schedules. While you it is best to keep up with the reading, you will still be able to enjoy 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 six 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.
