So much more than a Bible study, prayer meeting, or support group, Growth Groups are a tool we utilize as a church to cultivate growth in Christ in the context of loving relationships. Rooted in the Word, empowered by prayer, supported by spiritual fellowship, these groups are designed to be an environment in which we all grow up in every way into Christ (Ephesians 4:15).
While the priority is the whole church gathered together each Sunday, Growth Groups are a context for spiritually intentional relationships to be formed by encouraging life-touching-life, mutual ministry outside of our Sunday gatherings.
Growth Groups exists to glorify God by encouraging growth in Christ through the prayerful ministry of the Word in the context of loving relationships
