Winter Growth Groups
We are excited to be embarking on the next phase of our journey here at Encounter Church entitled Still Unfinished! Our Winter semester of Growth Groups will be growing together in a church wide study that follows the teaching of the sermon series. Groups will start mid-January by engaging in the sermon series called New Story. Here we will examine God’s story as He is known in the Old Testament, continue with a study of God’s people as they learn to follow Him, and conclude with a look at our personal stories. Starting in February, we will fully engage in Still Unfinished as Pastor Terry shares what God’s Word tells us about moving from where we are today to where He wants to lead us in the future – from ‘here to there!’ Come and join us as we continue to discover God’s will for Encounter Church and his plan for you in 2018!

Why Growth Groups?
It is often difficult to get connected with others in a growing church. So we have created intentional spaces where we can engage in relationships and experience God together. We believe that the intentionality and communal nature of growth groups can be beneficial for our spiritual growth. For this reason it is our desire to have everyone involved in a weekly Growth Group!

When you sign up, the leader of your new Growth Group will contact you with the address of the Group’s meeting place, the date and time you’ll be starting on, and all the other information you’ll need to have a great experience.
When Will My Growth Group Meet?
Growth Groups meet once a week, and each meeting is just sixty to ninety minutes long. Groups meet for ten to twelve times over the semester. It’s a short-term commitment but the positive impact on your life will be long-term.
What Will The People In My Group Be Like?
Look around at a Sunday service. A Growth Group is basically about fifteen or so people who attend Encounter Church on a Sunday.
Is There A Group That’s Right For Me?
Since there are a variety of groups, you’ll have the chance to share your life experiences with others who have similar ones.
Can I Invite Others?
Invite as many friends, co-workers, neighbors, family, etc. that aren’t connected to another church. Growth Groups are designed to get people connected to our church and to one another. The more people, the better.
